First published in 1930, “A Few More Short Notes on Retrievers” contains handy tips and simple advice for the proper care and management of retrievers. From breeding and selecting to training and kennelling, this timeless volume contains everything retriever owners might need to know, all presented in simple, clear language. Contents include: “Forming a Retriever Kennel”, “The Inmates”, “The Brood Bitch”, “The Sire”, “Precautions Before Pupping”, “When the Puppies are Born”, “Tricks”, “Exercise for Puppies”, “Dew-Claws”, “Winter-Bred Puppies”, “Education and 'Walks'”, “Kennel Manners”, “Bitch in Season”, “Sending Dogs by Railway”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on dog breeding.
