From the Back Cover

At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship!

You'll not only learn about the species-specific traits of your pet, you'll also learn what the world's like from your pet's perspective; how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy; and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together.

""The Lhasa Apso"" is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by long-time ""Dog Fancy"" magazine columnist, Bardi McLennan. Best of all, the book is filled with info-packed sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet easy and enjoyable.

When I bought my Lhasa Apso, this book kept me from freaking out! It does an excellent job of explaining the breed and all the challenges (and joys!) of owning one of these wonderful dogs. I use this book as my Lhasa "Bible" and it has helped me raise a healthy and very happy little puppy!

There is good general information on the bred in this book. But this is my second Lhasa Apso, this time she's a rescue dog from a puppy mill and I needed more specific information than I found here. I was familiar with the breed, as my late dog was a gem and a Lhasa Apso. My new rescue dog had an abused past so re-socializing her is difficult and this book didn't give me any additional clues. But it is a good source on the breed.

I found the book helpful. I would have liked more on an adult dog. My dog is a 2 1/2 year old Shelter dog. And I am a first time dog owner.

This book is Primarily just a general book about dogs. I was looking for a book specifically about Lhasa Apsos. There is some background material about the breed at the beginning of the book. There are some good tips and pictures about grooming a Lhasa with long hair. (My Lhasas do not have long hair.) There really aren't a lot of books about Lhasa Apsos but, as the book points out, there were not really any records kept about them for centuries. All in all, the book is good.
