I'm not going to say much because this book does exactly what it says. It's a great starting point to find out a bit about every breed. If you are thinking of getting a dog but don't know what breed suits your lifestyle/needs/time etc. then start with this book. I've been around dogs for over 20 yrs and I still bought this for my growing library.

Clear and current information. Fantastic photos and even pretty good section on training and equipment. This is refreshing among breed books!!!
Lets look at the Rottweiler for example...I can't tell you how many times I have read in breed books that the Rottweiler is a 'dominant' breed! They are NOT and what is a 'dominant breed anyway?!
This book says of the Rottie..
"The Rottweiler has acquired an unfortunate image as a vicious guard dog and an intimidating status symbol. However, despite the breed's great strength, impressive swagger and easily aroused protection responses, the Rottweiler in not naturally ill-tempered. With thoughtful training from a firm and experienced owner, who is alert to potential triggers of aggression, this dog makes a calm and obedient companion. They are more agile than their size and sturdy build might suggest and appreciate plenty of vigorous exercise".
As someone who deals with all kinds of dogs for a living, I consider this a good reference book!

I was a bit disappointed with this book. It has some lovely pictures, but the information provided was scant and often contradictory. There is an icon section for how easy / difficult a dog is to groom, train, how much excercise is needed, how suitable to live with a family etc, but often the text stated a different opinion to the icons.
Most breeds only get half a page and the majority of this is taken up with pictures.
However this book would be excellent for an older child who was interested in dogs.

Bought as a gift for my son who is studying animal behaviour and welfare. He loved it. Loved the photographs and information on the varieties of dogs. A great gift.

Very good book which gives an overview of dog breeds in different groups. They dogs are catergorised in terms of exercise / grooming / training required to enable you to assess if they would be suitable for you.
It helped us to decide on our next dog, with our 6 & 8 year old boys fully aware of the time commitment required ...
