This article is from the Afghan Hound Breed FAQ, by Janis Nixon with numerous contributions by others.
There are many excellent books available on the breed. Most libraries
stock one title or another but for true-life, hands-on experience, it
is suggested that potential owners attend local dog shows and talk to
fanciers. The Afghan Hound Club of Canada, a national club whose
secretary, Debbie Hodgins, may be contacted at PO Box 60, Hanley,
Sask., S0G 2E0, Canada exists not only to serve oldtime fanciers but
to help out those new to the breed. Our American counterpart, the
Afghan Hound Club of America may be reached through Ms. Norma Cozzoni
at 43W612 Tall Oaks Trail, Elburn, IL 60119, USA.
