Find your ideal dog in this stunning guide to all things canine.
With over 420 breeds at your fingertips – from established favourites, like the Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd, to newer “designer breeds” including the Schnoodle, Puggle, and Mal-shi – this book has all the information you need to help you choose, train, and care for your dog.
Fully updated to reflect the latest breeds, the book contains a catalogue of hundreds of dogs, with popular breeds – including the Boxer, Yorkshire Terrier, and English Springer Spaniel – given special in-depth treatment. Within each entry, annotated photographs showing the dog from various angles highlight the breed’s physical characteristics, while the text explains the main features and provides a brief historical overview. You’ll also find quick-reference panels offering an at-a-glance guide to key traits, such as the dog’s temperament, size, and colour.
Q&A selector charts help you find the perfect pet to suit your lifestyle, while a practical section on care covers the fundamental aspects of looking after a dog – handling, grooming, exercise, and health – with step-by-step photos and expert-written advice explaining the essentials of basic obedience.
Whether your ideal companion is a Great Dane or a Chihuahua, The Complete Dog Breed Book is a one-stop manual helping you become the owner of a happy, healthy, well-behaved dog.
