Selected Book
Dog in Action

By: McDowell Lyon
ISBN: 1929242069
PRICE: $0.00

Written in 1950, The Dog In Action was the first book to thoroughly analyze, illustrate and explain the under-the-skin workings of the dog. Whether looking a Pom or Pointer, McDowell Lyon showed the dog breeder, fancier and judge that the principles of movement applied to all.

The Dog In Action has inspired generations of dog breeders and judges to watch more carefully, to put aside preconceived notions of how the dog "should" work and learn from what their eyes tell them. While some of Lyonís theories have since been disproved, the book still deserves to be in the serious dog personís library because it is the foundation for all gait and locomotion books which have since been written. The modern dog breeder, judge and fancier will learn: 1. To put functional soundness above everything else. 2. Why the trot shows the faults and virtues of a dogís running gear. 3. That every animal that moves can teach us about functional conformation. 4. Why a dog must be dynamically balanced to function efficiently. 5. That no dog can be any better than his bone placement, conformation and muscle tone. 6. How to develop a thorough knowledge of dogs in order to interpret a breed standard.
