Overview

The author was a well-known greyhound man. He was as successful with his dogs on the track as he was in the field. His many years of expert knowledge are encapsulated within this book's two hundred and sixty-eight pages. Twenty-seven comprehensive chapters contain Valuable Information on: Origins and History of Greyhound Racing. Future of the Greyhound? What is a Good Greyhound? Breeding. Walks v. Rearing at Home. The Whelping Hut. Management of the Brood Bitch. Rearing. Management of the Saplings. Training. Proper Racing Weight. Transport and its Effect on Coursing. Blood. Selection of the Racing Brood Bitch. Kennel Ailments and Their Treatment. Weights of Growing Greyhounds. Measurements of Points. Rearing and Training Expenses. The Show Greyhound. Breeding and Rearing Champions. Greyhounds as Companions. Kennel Construction. Etc. The contents are well illustrated with vintage photographs of famous greyhounds and Waterloo Cup winners of the time. This is a fascinating read for any Greyhound enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
