Format: Hardcover
158 pages of quality information and photographs actually written about this rare but growing breed. Covers all aspects particular to the breed from puppy to senior years including temperment and traits particular to the Spanish Water Dog. This volume is NOT a cut and paste production built around a template to sell pet products. A previous reviewer expressed a cut and paste impression. Portions of the book on general health care are obviously provided by the publisher for the series which this is volume 332. The author has adhered to an outline yet tailored her writing to give an objective and complete discussion specific for this somewhat unusual medium sized nonshedding herding and working water dog. The only attribute not covered is the interaction of the breed's wooly coat and snow.

I was most excited to receive my copy of the SWD Comprehensive Review. While the book is informative with tons of photographs it was too general for my liking. I was expecting it to be written more breed specific in all aspects and to tell me some things I didn't already know. It is almost like the SWD was just plugged into many sections as those pertain to all breeds. The sections on general doggie training and health were just that, general almost everyday information that most dog owners already know or rely upon their vet to take care of for them. If a picture is worth 1,000 words then the pictures in this book must make up the selling price. Other than that, the information was stuff I already knew before falling in love with the breed. I am disappointed.

Until this book was published, the only information regarding the breed was written in Spanish. I applaud the authors for their attempt to educate the English-speaking people of the world with regards to this ancient breed. The photos alone are reason to purchase a used copy of this book but when it comes to factual information on the history one should look elsewhere. I hope this book encourages other potential authors to conduct in-depth research by contacting the Association Espanola del Perro de Agua Espanol, the herders and fishermen of Spain before they attempt such a noteworthy undertaking.

I found this book to be a bit less breed specific than what I was looking for. The first few chapters go over the modern history, breed standard and a few other breed related tidbits, but by and large the rest of the book was just generic doggie stuff. Photos and explanations of worms and other parasites, some basic training how-to's, etc. But very little on the breed from the title. A bit disappointing, but still a good general dog reference book. Lots of nice photos too... A great book to have in your collection, but a little less breed related than it could be.
