"...a significant new publication about the Bouvier......
I can think of no person more qualified to write such
a book than Jim Engel."
     Erik Houttuin

A classic every Bouvier des Flandres owner, breeder, or judge must have. From the working heritage that shaped the Bouvier soul to a thoughtful discussion of the future of the breed, author Jim Engel writes with an obvious love for his breed and a depth of understanding stemming from years of experience and research.

Topics include:


Selecting the right puppy or dog

The breed standard

Discipline and training

Daily care and grooming

Becoming a breeder

Origins in Europe and America

Conformation and working competition

Pedigrees and photos trace the breed from it's formation in the fields of Flandres, in Europe today, and it's importation to the U. S. and Canada. Truly an international book, covering all aspects of the breed with special emphasis on the importance of understanding and preserving the Bouvier's working heritage.
Engel, breeder of a number of conformation and working champions, is past president of the North American Working Bouvier Association, and has judged an number of specialty sweepstakes shows. He continues to breed on a limited basis, and has developed an extensive pedigree data base for the breed.
