Format: Hardcover
Fortunately this book is currently out of print, and should stay that way. The illustrations and pictures throughout the book date back to the late fifties and sixties. No where in the book does MS Nichols discuss in any detail the finer points of actually showing your purebred dog. To her benefit she did a very good job of depicting what it is like to attend a dog show and how champions earn their pionts. Unfortunatly, most of this information is not laid out in any organized manner. At times I felt like I was having a friendly cup of coffee as she skipped from one thought to another. Her biggest inside tip under the chapter "Tricks of the Trade" was "Keep your nose clean, your eyes and ears open, and your mouth closed until you know what it is all about." Good advice since you won't learn what showing your own dog is about from this source.

This Book has some age on it, but some things just never change. It was recommended reading when I start showing. It provides helpful insight for the novice that the experienced takes for granted everyone knows. This includes dressing the part (fashion may change but not the basics), what to take with you (even a change in water can disagree with your dog), and how to count up your points to the championship.
I recommend it for the novice showperson.
