The essential reference for anyone involved with dogs
By Godfrey Sandys-Winsch, BA Solicitor
Description: Booklet written to help not only dog owners but also others who may have cause to be involved with the law about dogs. It brings together concisely all the law pertaining to dogs and presenting that law in a readily understandable form.
Best Features: This book gives a basic introduction to the law relating to dogs. It is well written and easy to understand. It covers most situations that the average dog owner may encounter.
Worst Features: The book is not a comprehensive guide, although to be fair, this is reflected in the price. If an owner was wishing to fight a case. I believe, that a more in depth guide would be needed. An A5 loose-leaf reference called The Dog Law Handbook, by the same author, is available at £35.
Overall Rating: 8/10
Value for Money: Excellent

About the Author
She does have a doggy history though as she has been a police dog handler for the last eight years and currently works a GSD called Bryn.
Marie started agility after acquiring a very timid rescue called Willow who got her addicted. Next came Toby, another rescue but far from timid, mad would seem more apt! She travels to a lot of shows, mainly in the South, competes at Starter level and is endeavouring to win out!
Though only involved in agility for approximately three years Marie has put her full energy and talent into the sport. She has set up a web site for agility courses and a chat room. Initially her website Agility Courses was designed to encourage people to take on rescue dogs by telling Toby and Willow's story. The site has evolved and now includes information for Newbies, plans to build your own equipment and photos from shows as well as a number of agility courses. She is also very active on the Agility Forum.
Recently Marie has decided to branch out and offer her photos taken at agility shows for sale.
