Japanese Chin (Comprehensive Owner's Guide)

A delightful and affectionate toy dog hailing from the Land of the Rising Sun, the Japanese Chin is counted among the world’s most beloved companion dogs, a breed that author Juliette Cunliffe describes as a “happy little character with a down-to-earth, yet bumptious, personality.” Despite his small size, the Chin has a larger-than-life approach to the world: alert, spirited and friendly to all whom he encounters. As a home companion, the Japanese Chin demands affection and little else, being a naturally clean pet, often compared to a cat in cleanliness, sophistication and self-awareness. This new Comprehensive Owner’s Guide provides an entertaining portrait of the Chin’s origins and history, the breed’s physical characteristics and temperament as well as the special requirements of the new owner. Owners will welcome the author’s advice on selecting a healthy, typical Chin puppy, rearing, feeding and house-training the pup, plus obedience lessons, home safety and grooming. Ad

    This review is from: Japanese Chin (Comprehensive Owner’s Guide) (Hardcover)

    I felt like I was ten years old again being scolded by my mother while reading this book. The author manages to be as demeaning as possible to adults who read it. With continous comments like are you sure you’re responsible enough to have a pet? Maybe you should try a fish. Comments like this are relentless throughout the book. It was like the author wanted to make you feel like a retard or something.

    However, that’s not to say that the book is without its merits (hence the 2 stars not just one). There’s allot of information here on caring for your Japenese Chin as well as some interesting history on the species. Anyway, if your alright with being spoken to as if you were a 2 year old you can’t go wrong with the price. Just be forewarned, the author is down right irritating at times. To the author: I wouldn’t be purchasing the book if I didn’t already have the dog, stop with the lecturing already!

    Gives lots of information, nice pictures. If you know alot about the breed already, this is not the book for you. Most of the information is readily available elsewhere. If you are a novice to the Japanese Chin Breed, then this is a good start. Lots of information in one place.

    This book is good for a beginner, but if you already own a Chin then look elsewhere. This book offers the same information that can be gleaned from a google search.

    Excellent book of internal medicine, September 8, 2009
    This review is from: Small Animal Internal Medicine, 4e (Small Animal Medicine) (Hardcover)

    This is really good book for all veterinary medicine students even if english is not their mother language. I like the way how this book is written. There are also many tables and boxes so you can find important information really quickly. I’m really happy that I bought this book.

    MUCH more useful than Ettinger!, May 28, 2009

    I just graduated veterinary school, and the internists refer to Ettinger as their Bible. Sure, it may be true that Ettinger is more complete than Nelson – after all, it’s two volumes compared to one. However, in the real world, Nelson & Couto is FAR more clinically useful than Ettinger.

    Nelson reads exactly like Fossum’s surgery textbook. It lays out every disease process by system, and then introduces them, describes them, and informs on how best to treat the disease. It focuses on useful details that will help you in clinics. It doesn’t go into too much extraneous information that would just make it harder to read (like Ettinger).

    If you want research detail, get Ettinger. If you want a useful book in clinics or practice, get Nelson & Couto.

    As a veterinary student, I have found myself using this book on a weekly basis. If you are looking for a quick overview of specific diseases or a complete description of diseases you are learning for the first time, this book is an excellent resource to have in your collection. Every practicing veterinarian should have this text in their library collection.
