Item Description...
Named for County Kerry, the Irish Blue may have derived from some legendary "blue dogs that swam ashore from a ship wrecked in Tralee Bay." Singed with romance, the origins of the Kerry Blue Terrier befit this distinctive terrier among terriers. In addition to being a feisty and game earthdog, rugged enough to rid the landscape of rats and badgers, the Kerry is a versatile farm dog, a trainable hunting and herding dog, a confident watchdog and a delightful companion. Although strong-willed, as are all terriers, the Kerry excels in obedience and agility competition and possesses the confidence and panache to make heads turn in the show ring. As a companion, the Kerry Blue Terrier is able to delight dog lovers of every age with his clever and entertaining ways, his unmistakable affection for children and his unflagging devotion to his people. For the right owners, the Kerry makes an upstanding and handsome addition to a loving household.

This book discusses selection and care of the puppy as well as house-training, obedience training and dealing with and preventing behavioral problems. From the first days with the new puppy in the owner's home to the special care for a senior dog, this new volume will prove an invaluable addition to every Kerry lover's library.

Kerry Blue Terrier  Jan 30, 2008
I bought this book for my father who owns a Kerrie Blue. I mentioned the book to him prior to purchasing it & he reminded me that he hates to read & I had better not even think about buying him a book for Christmas. I didn't. Paudie, his Kerry Blue did. I called a couple days later to see if he was reading it and much to my surprise, he had already read it cover to cover! He couldn't stop telling me how much he enjoyed it and how it described Paudie perfectly. Paudie's family was mentioned in the book, as well as his breeder. My father reading this book from cover to cover in less than two days is the highest compliment a book can have!
A Book that Deserves Recognition!  Jul 19, 2007
Two years ago I obtained my beloved Kerry Blue Terrier, as my first official dog and first show dog. About 7 Months prior to purchasing him, I had pre-ordered this book through my local bookstore and when they had it in I was ecstatic...I had already heard that the author was a "Terrier Guru," so I had faith that this book would help me learn a bit more about the breed. And it certainly had. When I finally brought my little guy home, I had finished reading the whole thing, but was glad to have it around for a quick reference every now and then...two years later, I still look through the book whenever I need help with a Kerry issue (though his breeder is wonderful help, too!).

A big plus for me is that his father, grandparents, and great grandparents are featured in this book! So it's always fun to show people what great specimens of the breed his bloodline consists of :)

I totally recommend this book to anyone considering a Kerry! Bardi McLennan does a good job describing the breed's history, health, grooming needs, etc.
And if you decide that the Kerry is the not right terrier for you, she has written many other great terrier books worth checking into.
Very well written!  May 7, 2007
I research the breed for a while prior purchasing a puppy, I wanted to make sure we are the right family for this dog. This book was very comprehensive and among all those I had looked at it was the one I purchase for the content and amount of information regarding the most important aspects a new dog owner ought to know. The price was right too.
Thank you!
