The American Kennel Club has been the dog breed expert since 1884.From Library Journal:
The American Kennel Club (AKC), the most influential dog club in the United States, registers purebred dogs, supervises dog shows, and is concerned with all dog-related matters including public education. This book educates. It describes the dog's basic needs and the owner's responsibilities. The message is clear: people who cannot fulfill these obligations should not buy a dog. Topics discussed include "think" before buying, care, showing, training, breeding, and illness. While general dog and breed books have most of the same information, AKC's The Complete Dog Book (Howell. 1985. 17th ed.) has it all. Sections pertaining to dog care and training were selected, edited, or expanded for this new book. If The Complete Dog Book is in reference, this could circulate. For libraries with limited funds, the price is right.
