Originally published in 1932 and edited by A. Croxton Smith. This fascinating book is a compilation of articles by various authors on sixteen breeds of terriers, most of which were bred for sport. Thirty six illustrations show both sexes of each breed of terrier. Contents include: Ratting with Terriers - Working Terriers for Fox and Badger - The Airedale Terrier - The Bedlington Terrier - The Border Terrier - The Bull Terrier - The Cairn Terrier - The Dachshund - The Dandie Dinmont Terrier - The Smooth Fox Terrier - The Wire-Haired Fox Terrier - The Irish Terrier - The Kerry or Irish Blue Terrier - The Lakeland Terrier - The Scottish Terrier - The Sealyham Terrier - The Welsh Terrier - The West Highland White Terrier. Each chapter carries information on the dog's description and points, and it's use in sport and show, with advice on training and management. Many of the earliest dog books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
