Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Considered by many to be the perfect family dog, the golden retriever is known for its kind disposition, gentle demeanor, and strawberry-blond fur. In The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters, respected obedience instructor--and die-hard golden fan--Julie Cairns celebrates the breed and gives readers even more reasons to respect this lovable dog. From choosing, caring for, and living with a golden, to breeding, showing, and field training, Cairns's valuable advice--both informative and entertaining--is coupled with full-color photographs and line drawings throughout, making this delightful book as much fun to look at as it is to read. --Jennifer Pugh

From the Back Cover

The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters gives potential owners, new converts and veteran Golden lovers all they need to know about this ultimate companion. There are chapters on buying a dog, grooming, training, understanding the breed standard, breeding, health concerns and more. Dog shows, hunting and obedience competitions and all the activities Goldens can participate in are discussed. Five appendices include useful resources and top dogs in the breed.

Format: Hardcover
"The Golden Retriever: All that Glitters" is a beautiful, informative book that's large enough to cover many topics thoroughly. It is written in a clear, enjoyable manner, with terrific (if not very large) photographs.
Jamie Cairns truly knows, loves, and understands Goldens, and it shows in her comprehensive and occasionally humorous coverage of "Living with a Golden Retriever". She provides good information on health and maintenance issues, and more time than usual discussing field, obedience, agility, and other topics. The section on "Caring for the Older Golden Retriever" is both interesting and uncommon. The author leans toward field-bred Goldens rather than conformational, and this is reflected both in the text and especially the photography. It's not typical, and I loved it.
All-in-all, a beautiful and well-done book that would be a great addition to every Golden-lover's bookshelf.

If you love Goldens, this is the book for you. Ms. Cairns covers the spectrum from family pets to hunting and field dogs to outstanding show dogs. The book is filled with lovely pictures and wonderful thoughts on puppies, active adults and an especially nice section on the joys of the older dog. The book is a visual treat and something you will be proud to add to your library.

Format: Hardcover
If an owner of a new Golden Retriever can buy just one book, make it this one! The Golden Retriever: All That Glitters covers every aspect of owning a Golden in an understandable and practical way. A great reference to be used again and again! Cairns manages to cover everything from the first fun of owning a pup to the serious concerns of caring for an aging Golden with a professional style and attitude that everyone from the newest novice through the seasoned veteran to the breed will appreciate. Her concise style has produced a book crammed with valuable information on the endless possibilities of enjoying life with a Golden!

Format: Hardcover
I like the pictures and the author gives good information on the breed. Her history is more detailed than in many other books on the breed, which impressed me. It's a very good book, one I feel that any new owner should read and anyone already owned by a golden would enjoy. It's full of good information. Another good book to get is The New Complete Golden Retriever by Gertrude Fischer.
