9781847973030: Sporting Terriers: Their Form, Their Function and Their Future

This book is about sporting terriers, that much-loved, quintessentially British, quite admirable group of dogs, favored for centuries by the more humble type of hunter. Sporting Terriers is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition, and dog care; it is a celebration of terriers' contribution to the sporting scene, an examination of their form, their function, and their future, in an increasingly urban society. Painstakingly researched and brimming with information, it covers the emergent terrier breeds and foreign ones, as well as the long-established pedigree breeds of the show ring.

About the Author:

David Hancock is the author of eight previous books on dogs, and more than 750 articles published in national and international magazines. In 2009 he won the annual award of the Dog Writers' Association of America, having been a runner-up two years earlier. He judges emergent terrier breeds such as the Lucas, Sporting Lucas, and Plummer Terriers as well as working gundog tests. David wrote the breed standards for several emergent breeds, has advised television production companies on recent documentaries on dogs, and was a contributor to the Bateson Report, an inquiry into pedigree dog breeding in the UK.
