Synopsis

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.
