"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole"


Roger Caras

"Dogs, just like people, are not perfect. But, they need to be the best they can be and that's OUR job. I can't think of a better word than durability. That's what all of us need - a durable dog! Everyone wants his or her dog to live a long, healthy, happy life. That is the true tell of success. Obviously a durable dog will be the best - whether it's on a couch, in a show ring, weaving poles, coursing or pulling a sled! It is a book that will make you stare at your dog and think. . . . "

STRUCTURE IN ACTION is a must for all who share their active lives with dogs. It is an invaluable reference book for anyone wanting a dog for the high-octane lifestyle, since working and performance dogs need the soundest possible structure. Also, it provides excellent information for breeders, who bear the responsibility for matching the most suitable puppy or dog to a client's expectations. With over 400 visuals, this book details the structural strengths to strive for in breeding programs and the structural issues that must be taken into consideration before leading a dog into an active life

"Putting titles on our dogs can feel great, but acting in their best interests is a mark of personal integrity and a commendable measure of respect for the dogs that are dependent on our knowledge and awareness."
