It's a really good and well thought out book. The personality test in the book really works and can help anyone who is unsure what breed/breeds is right for them to find their right matches. Although just taking the test is not a good substitute for researching breeds, it can give potential new dog owners a lead to go off of. When I got this book I already owned a dog and often there was much friction between this dog and myself, even though there were moments when we really got along. At the time it wasn't surprising that his breed didn't show up on the breeds I was matched with. Now that some things have changed in what I like in a dog and what I like to do since taking this test I have considered retaking it to see if my results would be any different now.Was this review helpful?

I wouldn't admit it was stolen from me.
The author tells a lot of stories about others and their relationships with dogs. His criterias for actually matching a person to a dog are seriously flawed in my opinion. To lump so many animals into categories without actually having exposure to the different breeds based on second hand knowlege is lazy and inacurate. It also deals exclusively with pure bred animals and that does a great injustice to the great American staple. THE MUTT. Not a single mention of mixed breeds appears in the text and with so many mixed breeds out there it lends the reader the impression that if you don't show or breed the animals it doesn't matter what type of pet you are looking for. There's way too much filler on history and renting Rotties to walk through the barrio and look tough and not enough real fact in the book. Really wasn't much help at all here. If you are looking to breed and show animals it might be of little use, and by little I mean 15-20 pages worth. Wish I could recommend something better, but there is little on the topic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In 1990, I developed Your Best Friend, which offers personalized dog matching for individuals and families, almost 10 years before this book was published. My system is based on years of dog training, human and dog psychology, extensive dog breed profiling, etc., and offers the best, most accurate service. My work is copyrighted...some of this author's work is suspiciously like my original writings.
