THE GREYHOUND: BREEDING, COURSING, RACING, etc. By James Matheson. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1929, this extremely scarce early work on the Greyhound is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a well known greyhound man. He was as successful with his dogs on the track as he was in the field. His many years of expert knowledge are encapsulated within this book's two hundred and sixty eight pages. Twenty seven comprehensive chapters contain Valuable Information on : Origins and History of Greyhound Racing. Future of the Greyhound? What is a Good Greyhound? Breeding. Walks v. Rearing at Home. The Whelping Hut. Management of the Brood Bitch. Rearing. Management of the Saplings. Training. Proper Racing Weight. Transport and its Effect on Coursing. Blood. Selection of the Racing Brood Bitch. Kennel Ailments and Their Treatment. Weights of Growing Greyhounds. Measurements of Points. Rearing and Training Expenses. The Show Greyhound. Breeding and Rearing Champions. Greyhounds as Companions. Kennel Construction. Etc. The contents are well illustrated with vintage photographs of famous greyhounds and Waterloo Cup winners of the time. This is a fascinating read for any Greyhound enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.Keywords: Greyhound Breeding Greyhound Racing Dogs Brood Bitch James Matheson Breed Books Books Series Whelping Saplings Expert Knowledge Reprint Origins
