If you own a pure bred English Springer Spaniel(bench type), this book is an absolute must for your library. To know the history of your ESS is to know your dog completely. This book is a great architectual benchmark of where the history began and the hard work and dedication that was devoted to making the breed what it is today. See the written history and photos from your pure bred ancestry in this wonderfully created book. If you think you have a great idea of the bloodline in your Springer, wait until you see this book and see how far back that line goes!!

A Very Thorogh Book
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 26 years ago
Ms. Nicholas privides a huge volume of information with wonderful photographs, and chapters on the many aspects of owning and raising English Springer Spaniels. It is the only book I have read to date which offers any information on rage (whose presence many breeders either dispel or aren't aware of). Other topics include a description of the breed and standards; AKC events to participate in with your dog; choosing a pet; careful consideration before breeding; the responsibilities and work involved in being a careful breeder; the proper training and grooming of the breed; health issues; many submissions from kennels across the country describing their background and purpose; pedigrees of many different kennels' great dogs; several sections of gorgeous color, as well as black and white photos of springers in various events and at home. This book was an inspiration to me, and was the first place I found color photographs of tricolor springers. This is a magnificent and very thorough book. It is a large format, with good typesetting and well designed. It is a coffee table book to keep nearby for entertainment as well as reference.
