TABLE OF CONTENTS: The Practical Canine Anatomy textbook discusses key skeletal and surface parts of the dog that judges and breeders should know and approaches the topic of canine anatomy from the point of view of evaluating a dog¡¯s structural balance based on 4 important elements, which include (1) size, (2) substance, (3) stance and (4) proportions. By discussing individual parts and how they relate to the all important structural balance of each dog, the goal is to reinforce the important judging principle of never losing sight of the whole dog and the idea that no one part is ever more important than the sum of a dog¡¯s parts. A deck of flashcards is included along with a series of workbook exercises.
