The New Complete Dog Book: Official Breed Standards and Profiles for Over 200 Breeds by The American Kennel Club

The New Complete Dog Book is the American Kennel Club’s “Bible” of dogs. For the past 88 years it has been the ultimate breed resource—the one book that no purebred dog aficionado and expert can live without. In addition to being the longest continually published dog book in history, it is also the most successful dog book ever published, with over two million copies sold. The revised and updated 22nd edition contains revised breed standards, changes in breed classifications, and recently recognized breeds. Dog owners, breeders, and clubs will find the most current information here on AKC registration, competitive events, and programs.

A celebration of every breed of dog recognized by the American Kennel Club—over 200 breeds—this new 22nd edition offers readers:

Official standard for every AKC-recognized breed, including seven variety Groups and the Miscellaneous Class

Breed histories, puppy-buying tips, and pet attributes, each breed written by one of the 200 AKC national parent clubs

Over 800 exceptional color photographs of adults and puppies illustrate each four-page breed entry

Spotlight on finding well-bred puppies, sports and activities for dogs and owners, AKC programs, and canine anatomy

Illustrated glossary of canine terminology
