This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to sporting dogs, with information on different breeds, training, care, management, choosing a dog, and much more. Including a wealth of invaluable information and many helpful tips, this volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in the history of fox hunting, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of hunting literature. Contents include: "American Variations", "Shooting Breeds", "Pointer Families", "English Setter Questions", "American Llewellins", "Laveracks in America", "Irish and Gordon Setters", "Greyhounds", "Foxhounds", "Beagles", "Chesapeakes and Water-Spaniels", "Fox Terriers", "Choosing a Shooting Dog", "The Dogs they Prefer", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. Originally published in 1904, we are now republishing this volume in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the foxhound.
