The Complete Dog Breed Book

Choose the Perfect Dog For You



A one-stop guide to choosing the perfect dog, from an illustrated catalogue of more than 420 breeds.


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.
