Elegant and diginfied, the Skye Terrier, named for the rugged Isle of Skye, stands tall among Scotland's 'below the knee' terriers-in character and courage! Few pure-bred dogs match the Skye Terrier for independence and liberal thinking, as this intelligent terrier has a mind of its own and an heart to share with its like-minded, well-informed keeper, who is not adverse to a little humility in the training department. Although not a choice for the first-time owner, the Skye Terrier proves to be a loyal and loving companion to his `one owner.' Likened to a caterpillar, the Skye has a look all its own, 'long, low and profusely coated,' as the breed standard describes, and will most assuredly act like a Skye, delighting and challenging his ever-devoted master.
Terrier breed expert, Muriel P Lee provides the much-needed up-to-date information about the Skye Terrier and its origins and history, breed character and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, basic obedience, proper puppy precautions, house-training and preventative health care. In addition to its authoritative, lively text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full colour, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Skye Terrier.
Whether it's obedience, allergies, back problems or fleas, this book is the way to prevention, providing the reader with the necessary guidance an owner needs from puppyhood through the senior years.
