Format: Hardcover
This book is exactly what the new Cocker Spaniel owner needs. Not bogged down with technicalities about the dog's structure, it concentrates on presenting the important things about your new pup. A smattering of the history of the breed fills it out nicely. Judy Iby is no lightweight either...Judy herself has put over 100 AKC titles on her own Cocker Spaniels, including obedience, conformation, tracking and agility. She has mentored probably hundreds of new Cocker Spaniel owners through the puppy and adolescent years of their new companion dog's life, and now she shares this wisdom with the rest of us.
I would have rated the book a "5 star" book for just Judy Iby's contributions, but I think the "generic" parts of the book that are tacked on on by Howell to construct their series of breed books almost detract from the fine quality of the original contributions about the Cocker Spaniel by Judy Iby.
It is accessible, inexpensive, and a Gem for new Cocker Spaniel owners.

I recently adopted a Cocker Spaniel from the humane society. I had no knowledge of this breed and had not planned on adopting a breed until I researched it first. Well, Sydney caught both my eye and my husband's. She is adorable with her big brown eyes. I ordered the book after I adopted her, and I am glad that I did because it helps to understand the breed. Consider a Cocker Spaniel, and buy this book first.

This book is perfect for someone who wants good general knowledge about the Cocker Spaniel. It covers all the basics and then some. It is a small book. It is concise and perfect for the average pet owner. I like it very much.
