    OK basic reference book

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I was a little disappointed that the book was not a more recent publication (2000). Some of the information is outdated especially when costs are discussed.....Wish it contained more info on specific grooming techniques for pups beyond 1 yr old. Most of info geared toward young puppies. I would still purchase the book as it contains some valuable tips
