Format: Paperback
To be a "REAL" (responsible, with a long term contribution to a breed) is no matter of luck, or money (even though you may need some of both!). More than that, you have to study and understand what is behind selecting the right combination of broadstock and stud, cleanning up genetically based failures, and much more. Breeding Better Dogs is a easy to read book (don't need to be an expert) and the tips and methods are readly applicable. I breed American Bulldog, and, for the good of the breed, I really wish the most breeders in the breed would read it.

This book is very well written and extremely informative. I feel all responsible dog owners and breeders should actually be required to read this book! Some of the genetics can be difficult to grasp but if you're intent to learn, you'll stick with it and keep reading each page. It's a little out of date now, but it's an Oldie & Goodie.

This is a great book for the library of breeders and serious dog owners. We tread a difficult path to determine soundness, either as breeder or informed purchaser of purebreed dogs. Valuable information for all!

I suggest this book to other breeders, but they think they know best. For a new comer getting into this late in life (empty nester) I need all the help from true experts and I consider Dr. Battaglia to be one of them. Thank you for all you research in the field Dr.
