  • Good Basic Breed Book

    I bought this because the dog featured on the Havanese page is mine! The description of each breed, while fairly accurate, is not the complete AKC standard. The value of this book is to get a good overview of the various breeds as you begin your search for a dog. The AKC Breed Book, though, should be your other purchase, along with this one, in order to have the accepted standard for each breed. This book would be great for a younger child, as well, who is interested in dogs.

  • I'm glad I picked this one!

    I needed a book on the different dog breeds that were recognized by the AKC, and also went into some detail about the dogs temperment, its health, the history and and the other specifics like height and weight. This book does that but also has a wonderful rating system (that it explains in great detail how to use) about ease of training, affection level, energy level, basically how good of a pet it would make for first time pet owners. What I mean is it went above and beyond what I expected. So in my opinion it is good for someone that needs it for school (like me) or for someone that is looking for what kind of pet they would like to get. I would highly reccommend this book for anyone interested in either learning about dogs, needing a book for school, looking for a pet or basically any reason they are looking for a book about dog breeds!

  • The Dogbreed Bible

    I bought the book for my daughter's Vet Tech Program in Tulsa, OK. It was recommended by the instructor. I was able to see many of the pages on-line and thought the book looked like something I would just like to have for myself as I am a dog lover/owner. I plan on buying another one! Thanks OS for the good price-.
