Rhodesian Ridgeback owners guide book

The Complete Rhodesian Ridgeback

The Complete Rhodesian Ridgeback book by Peter NicholsonIn this award-winning comprehensive book of the breed, Peter Nicholson, co-author, traces the Rhodesian Ridgeback’s origins from his early nomadic roots, through to his work as a hunter of big game, and finally to the popular show and companion dog breeder that he is today.

Advice is given on choosing and raising a puppy, and caring for an adult dog. A chapter is devoted to nutrition, written by an expert vet and clinical nutritionist, which provides valuable information on the Ridgeback’s dietary needs.

For the experienced owner, detailed advice is given on breeding and rearing a litter, and a canine geneticist gives a fascinating insight into the genetic principles that should be considered when planning a breeding programme.

A comprehensive section on health-care describes any breed-specific conditions you may encounter, together with advice on preventative care.

Illustrated with more than 120 photos and helpful line drawings, The Complete Rhodesian Ridgeback is essential reading for all enthusiasts of the breed.
