This book is very readable and according to Ralph J. Graff, M.D. Director of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory Saint Louis University Medical Center, it avoids the heavy jargon of the scientist and has something to offer anyone interested in breeding better dogs. Battaglia’s breeding program sets the standard for those serious about producing a better and more healthy puppy.
