Format: Paperback
This book goes into detail about the history of the Mountain Dogs as well as a complete overview of each of the four breeds within this classification. There is not the geneological references that you may find with other books, and I appreciated that fact as someone who just wanted to "get to know the breed" a bit better. The referece delineates the four breeds and compares each. It can be difficult to find information about the three lesser known Mountain Dogs, so for those looking for information about the Appenzeller, this is a great start.
Included, also, is some basic puppy rearing information, including tips on house training, grooming, basic health and breeding.
If you are interested in learning more about these teriffic dogs, but dont want to spent a fortune on a coffee table book, this is a great purchase!

Format: Paperback
This book may be appropriate for anyone completely unfamiliar with Mountain Dogs, who also wants a very brief synopsis about each of these wonderful breeds.
To anyone wanting more than that, this book will probably be a disappointment and not worth the money to buy it.
I personally view this book as a waste of money, time and effort. And I generally advise others to avoid this book because there are much better books on the subject matter that are easily available.
I'm still hoping the author of this book will write another edition of this book and expand with a much more comprehensive coverage of each of these breeds. Now that's a book I could be interested in. But this one? I gave it away soon after I bought it.

This book is a general dog book with only a few passages about the four swiss mountain breeds. Too bad; the only book I've found on the Entlebucher is in German. I'm still in the process of translating that book. On other matters I am happy to give ratings, but the reviews you require are too long. Therefore, I will not be reviewing future purchases. Sorry.

This is the coffee table book. It's a reasonably quick read and discusses all the Swiss dogs.
