A concise and comprehensive breed guide for prospective owners of the lively and outgoing Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen! Learn the history of the beguiling PBGV, a robust and sunny breed of hound originating in France and quickly gaining popularity in the US. New PBGV owners and longtime fans of this purebred dog can read information about various characteristics and the breed standard, written by President of the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Club of America, Jeffrey G. Pepper. Drawing on his seasoned experience with purebred dogs since 1984, Jeffrey provides helpful information to make bringing home your new PBGV puppy a stress-free experience for both you and your new companion. Read about home safety, what to expect on the first trip to the vet, puppy socialization, and solving common puppy problems. Proper care topics covered include feeding for all life stages, coat care, and exercise needs as well as safety tips for traveling with your dog. You will learn about choosing a skilled and able veterinarian, pet insurance, vaccinations, spay/neuter decision making, and parasite control to help you become a well-educated advocate for your PBGV's health. Training begins as soon as you bring your new PBGV home. In this book, you will learn the basics of training a puppy or adult dog as well as the principles of house training using crates and basic scent instincts. Get started with leash and collar introduction and progress through basic commands. Find out how to further your dog's training with obedience classes and training for other activities that will keep your active PBGV healthy and happy. Puppies need special care, and so do senior dogs. The physical signs of aging are some of the first clues that your PBGV is becoming a senior dog. With help from colorful photos and discussion of behavioral changes, you will find the needed guidance to help navigate the senior life stage and the special needs they may have.
