The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting and Owning a Dog
by Sheila Boneham ~ Absolutely the best general dog care book we've ever seen. Seldom does a book come along that we can't find anything wrong with...but this may be it! A must for all dog owners. There are other Complete Idiot's guides to dogs -- be sure to get the one by Sheila Boneham.
Whippets: Everything About Purchase Adoption, Care, Nutrition, Behavior, and Training, by D. Caroline Coile. This inexpensive little book is part of the Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals series, and is the best guide for the new whippet owner we've seen. We send one home with every puppy. A very good investment for someone thinking about getting a whippet!
The Whippet by Bo Bengsten -- A comprehensive book written by a well-known whippet breeder for the serious student of the breed. Covers the general character of the breed, selection and care of the puppy, history, showing and judging, evaluation, an overview of racing and coursing, and a rundown on the best-known lines and breeders in North America, Britain, and around the world. The pictures are stunning, the book is easy to read and following, and we recommend it highly to anyone who likes learning about whippets. Information about ordering it is at the Bohem Whippets website.
