While this book has some very interesting history on the Irish Terrier and its origins, which is useful in conversations where folks are curious about the breed... most of the book is rather generic in terms of puppy/dog training information and really applies to any dog breed. I don't remember reading any specific training tips that are geared just solely to an Irish Terrier. That being said all the information is pertinent and useful and I gleaned many good tips. I'm guessing the publisher has a standard template in which they just swap out the specific breed information and pictures and sell it as a different book for the different breeds. There is however some really good specific information on grooming the Irish Terrier and the traits of the Irish as well like how they may interact with their family, other people and other dogs. I have found that most of those traits, but not all, fit my Irish Terrier. If you want some good history on the breed, and a few traits you may expect of the Irish this is a good resource. But I would still recommend getting at least a couple books on puppy/dog training because there are always conflicting advice/opinions on training. Then you can pick the methods you want to employ. My favorite part of the book is the term "pluck" used to describe the spirited animation and heedless play of the Irish. Every time I see our Irish display those characteristics I think of that term from this book. When our Irish plays with our children or our neighbor's docile Golden or our friend's Lab, we see a lot of this so-called "pluck"!

It lacks information. It is a good cultural and historical background kinda-book but when it comes to actually having and raising an Irish Terrier, it is lacking all the important information: character, tendencies, generalities...

This is an excellent source for learning the basics about the breed and dog care. I found that my Irish Terrier looks nothing like the dogs displayed in the wonderful pictures, so if there is a negative, it's that not everyone grooms their pooches to show-quality standards. It would have been nice to see a couple of pictures of your average, family dog included in the mix.
