5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
Structure in Action: The Makings of a Durable Dog does more than just state what proper structure is.
The book explains every area of the dog's body, what is proper or poor structure, why each part is important for performance/ conformation
and documents with pictures both proper and poor structure. This book is an easy read and will be a great reference manual...

2.0 out of 5 stars A mile wide and an inch deep.
This book scimmed, very lightly, over a ton of topics. It covers all the different aspects of structure and such, but goes into no kind of detail. For example, the book may say, "A short forearm is bad because in inhibits movement." That's it! No elaboration whatsoever!

This book is great for all dog people, if you are in performance sports or not. Just being aware of your dogs current structure. So much i didn't know and very intresting. Even if you are planning on getting a new dog soon. They highlight structure features you would never know to look at.
Great additon to the book collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome font of information, June 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Structure in Action: The Makings of a Durable Dog (Paperback)
I got this book after becoming involved with Purebred Dogs and my AKC Parent Club Judges Education committee. As part of my own education I must say that this is a must have for anyone who is/will become a breeder, or someone wanting to make a good decision when purchasing a puppy. It also helps to decide whether a currently owned dog should be involved in performance venues in the dog world such as agility, hunting, lure coursing, etc., and/or considered for a possible breeding. A companion DVD Puppy Puzzle by the same author helps visually to see what is discussed and I highly suggest getting both items. Pat Hasting also does Seminars across the country and a day long seminar(often put on by Kennel Clubs or Breed Clubs) is a must attend if it happens to be in your geographical area. Buy this, Read it, Look at your dogs, and gain a Wealth of Knowledge. They are our best friends, it is important to ask no more of them than what they can safely( for them) give.

5.0 out of 5 stars Structure In Action The Makings of A durable Dog, January 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Structure in Action: The Makings of a Durable Dog (Paperback)
This book is for those who own a dog:companion, show, performance sports ... anyone who wants to know how their dog's structure works.
Its easy to understand text is backed up by great diagrams and photos of dogs with correct and incorrect structure.
It is a must for the novice breeder/exhibitor and an agjunct to the more experienced.
I loaned it from the library; enjoyed it & got so much out of it I purchased a copy for myself and one for a close friend who is starting out in the world of breeding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important education for dog owners, breeders, exhibitors, handlers, and judges, May 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Structure in Action: The Makings of a Durable Dog (Paperback)
This is a book fundamental to dog ownership and those involved with dogs at all levels. It speaks to all the
breeds and is should be required for dogs of all mixes as well.

I have been sending copies to those who breed dogs for the betterment of their breeds and who truly love
the puppies and try to find appropriate forever homes. .

This book will enable owners, handlers and judges to evaluate the puppies for their future lives for performance
events and activities of all kinds without injuring or overstressing bodies that are challenged by some
activities. It is indeed the education needed to give each dog a healthy and productive life...in a word,
"durable"!
