There are faults within the book, however. While Kathleen Kanzler does a wonderful job of writing in detail about her breed, it becomes very clear that over half of the book is written about dogs in general when the words "Siberian Husky" all but disappear from the text, save for the captions in the picture (and even then, towards the end of the book the name of the breed disappears from those as well). Not only does the name of the breed disappear, but many of the things written about do not even apply to Huskies. For example, the book describes what Earthdog Events are, which apparently only apply to terriers (which the Husky is not). The effect of this generalization is distracting, and if you have read books on general dog care and dog activities, then you can easily skip half of this book. This latter part of the book is attributed to Judy Ilby, and is most likely a decision by the publisher (TFH) rather than Kanzler, which is unfortunate since she could probably have tailored most of the information in this part to apply to the Husky.
That is not to say that I did not enjoy this book, however. Anyone considering a Husky would do well to give it a read, as Kanzler is a very knowledgeable and reputable breeder whose Huskies have gone on to worldwide fame within the dog world. Her guidance is very useful. Hopefully, she will someday choose to write a more personal account of her experience as a person who has devoted her life to the Siberian Husky.
