Behind The Complete Yorkshire Terrier is an authority attested by the greatest kennel record in the breed's history.
I nearly three decades of devotion to the breed, the authors - twin sisters Joan B Gorden and Janet E Bennett - have finished 169 Yorkshire Terriers to AKC championship, over a hundred of them homebred. Over two-thirds of all-breed Bests in Show won by Yorkshire Terriers in America, and 16 of the 22 parent Specialty wins, have been won by their dogs. One of their dogs stands as the all-time top winer of the breed, and another as the all-time top sire of Yorkie champions.
The Complete Yorkshire Terrier rewardingly reflects this unmatched experience. For veterans and novices alike, the superb chapters on care and grooming (brimming with special insights and hints) are sure to become the quoted guide for years to come. Fanciers will find the in-depth studies of the standard and judging an invaluable aid in showing their yorkies.
And putting icing on the cake is the weath of more than 300 super illustrations, including photo studies from birth to adulthood, and pictures of virtually every outstanding Yorkshire Terrier in American show history.
