Overview


Have you ever wondered what makes a dog a champion? Or maybe you're looking for the perfect pet and want to be able to make an informed choice. Discover a world of dogs with this comprehensive guide to 160 of today's most popular breeds. 

Every dog is beautiful in its own way, and the very wide range of breeds of pedigree dogs existing today means that every dog lover can indulge his or her particular preference. However, always remember that each breed of dog has its own distinct characteristics—looks, size, character, and tempermant—so it is essential to get as much information as possible about all the different breeds to enable you to select the right dog to meet your requriements.  

A comprehensive introduction covers the breed groups, the terminology of dog breeding and showing, details about dog heads, ears, eyes, tails, and coat colors. Advice on choosing a dog, and caring for a dog also provides prospective owners an invaluable resource. From Bulldogs to Dalmatians, from Terriers to Great Danes, and Shar-Peis to Dobermans, each of these breeds has in-depth information about everything to look for in a champion canine. Non-sporting breeds, working breeds, and herding breeds are all represented.
