Bird Dogs Of The World: by Stanley W.C. Smith
Bird Dogs Of The World: by Stanley W.C. Smith (Author) (9781852591762)
In this book, Stanley Smith has made a special study of the Bird Dogs of the World, showing how they developed and where they originate from. It all makes fascinating reading. Starting from ascent history and the early development of the dog he traces the uses made of the Hunting Dog in Ancient Egypt some 8000 years ago and on to the Phoenicians, Carthagenians, Assyrians and other races up to the present day.

An unusual feature is the coverage of the Game Birds which are the quarry of the Bird Dogs.  After descriptions of the various breeds there is a chapter on selecting and training a puppy for pointing retrieving.  The author is a keen breeder and enthusiast of the gun-dog breeds and has been actively concerned with them for more than 40 years.
