I am a dog trainer and I have bought many books that supposed to give the same information this book gives but they do not meet the same standards of this book. It is called a bible for a reason and for that reason I carry this book with me whenever I am working. Finding the correct references is easier than any of the competors as well as the information given once you find the breed you are looking for. This is my favorite book on my shelf!

This book is exactly what I was looking for. I'm always curious when I see a dog and am uncertain of its breed, and this book is a great reference. I think children who love dogs would enjoy it too.
