Der Dobermann ist ein freundlicher, agiler Begleiter. Im 19. Jahrhundert ursprünglich als Schutz- und Wachhund gezüchtet, können wir heute seine Vielseitigkeit bewundern. Nicht nur als Schutz- und Wachhund, auch als Dienst-, Sport-, Begleit- und Familienhund ist er beliebt, ebenso als Therapie- oder Behindertenbegleithund. Der Dobermann ist kein Allerweltshund. Aber wer sein Herz einmal erobert hat, kann kaum einen treueren Freund finden. Das Buch vermittelt viel Wissenswertes über Geschichte, Standard, Charakter, Vereine, Genetik, Fütterung, Ausbildung und Gesundheit. Die vorliegende, zweite Auflage wurde überarbeitet. Einige S/W- und Farbzeichnungen runden das Buch ab.

Die heutige Rassehundezucht steckt in einer tiefen Krise: Die durch das Ausstellungswesen praktizierte jahrzehntelange Selektion auf reine Äußerlichkeiten anstatt auf Gesundheit und Vitalität hat zu katastrophalen Konsequenzen geführt. Manche Rassehunde können kaum noch laufen, atmen oder sich auf natürlichem Wege fortpflanzen. Wie das passieren konnte und welche Wege zur Gesundung beschritten werden könnten, zeigt der anerkannte Kynologe Hellmuth Wachtel in diesem Buch. Nach einem kurzen Abriss über Evolution und Domestikation des Hundes unter Einbeziehung der neuesten molekulargenetischen Erkenntnisse geht Wachtel auf die Entstehung der verschiedenen Rassen und schließlich die Schauhundezucht als Erscheinung der Neuzeit ein. Frei von jeder Polemik, aber mit entschiedener Sachlichkeit klärt er über die Ursachen des Niedergangs auf und zeigt machbare Lösungsmöglichkeiten auf.

Sheep are the thread that runs through the history of the English countryside. Our fortunes were once founded on sheep, and this book tells a story of wool and money and history, of merchants and farmers and shepherds, of English yeomen and how they got their freedom, and above all, of the soil. Sheep have helped define our culture and topography, impacting on everything from accent and idiom, architecture, roads and waterways, to social progression and wealth. With his eye for the idiosyncratic, Philip meets the native breeds that thrive in this country; he tells stories about each breed, meets their shepherds and owners, learns about their past - and confronts the present realities of sheep farming. Along the way, Philip meets the people of the countryside and their many professions: the mole-catchers, the stick-makers, the tobacco-twisters and clog-wrights. He explores this artisan heritage as he re-discovers the countryside, and finds a lifestyle parallel to modern existence, struggling to remain unchanged - and at its heart, always sheep.
