This single-volume, authoritative guide is essential reading for anyone who owns, or hopes to own, a pure-bred dog. Containing full descriptive 'standards' for all pure breeds of dog recognised by The Kennel Club—of which there are currently 196—this guide is indispensable for breeders, judges, vets and anyone professionally involved with dogs. This book has been completely revised by a panel of experts to incorporate the latest standards for all the breeds in each of the principle categories: Hound, Gundog, Terrier, Utility, Working, Toy and Pastoral. A history of each breed is given, describing its origin and purpose, together with a description detailing its essential features. There is also useful advice on the nature and suitability of a dog, for example as an ideal family companion or an excellent guard dog.
