The AKC is THE authority on breed standards because AKC is the source of breed standards. Difficult to navigate, no link or quick way to go to the breed or page of interest. Pictures are not in color; why not for digital version? Euphamisms used to describe potentially bad characteristict of a breed; novices beware.

Lots of information but no color pictures of the dogs.

Not much research on each breed and not enough unusual breeds sounds written by a robot.

I immediately lost confidence in this book when it made no mention of Pit Bulls, but had a photo of a pit and called it an American Stratfordshire Terrier. The book has great history of each breed and good training tips according to the personality traits of each breed, but I am now jaded by the one error I found the first day I perused the book.

I had been looking for a book about breeding. I could not find anything that went into depth the way this book did. It actually tells you what days the female can get pregnant. How to take care of her before and after the litter. I just found the book remarkable for the information contained within it for the price. It has everything you want to know from ear cleaning to breeding and etc. So whether you are a long time pet owner like me or new this book will meet your needs and then some.
