From the Inside Flap:

The Rhodesian Ridgeback Today The Rhodesian Ridgeback, the hunting dog of Africa, has emerged from relative obscurity to earn a reputation as an impressive show dog, and a loyal companion. Originally bred to accompany big game hunters, the Ridgeback was also highly-prized as a guard dog, keeping out intruders from farms and plantations. Today, the Ridgeback, a strong and agile dog, retains its fiercely loyal character, and, with the right training, is a companion dog par excellence. In this comprehensive book of the breed, the author explores the origins of the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and traces its development in its native home and its spread overseas. The Ridgeback character and Ridgeback behaviour are analyzed, with practical advice on training and socializing. The show scene is examined, with an in-depth interpretation of the Breed Standard. This is followed by a fascinating new feature giving a series of critiques on the great dogs in the breed. For the specialist, there is detailed advice on breeding a litter and health care, including breed inherited conditions, which is given extensive coverage. With contributions from Ridgeback kennels worldwide, this book, lavishly illustrated with top-quality colour photographs, is essential reading for all Rhodesian Ridgeback enthusiasts.
