Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Good, basic references on dogs are always needed, as new dog owners are born every day, and Fogle, veterinarian and author of numerous books on dogs, has created one with his valuable introduction to all aspects of dog care. Beginning with canine physical characteristics, the author examines dog design, emphasizing the practical aspects of anatomy and physiology and how they are important to the dog's lifestyle. Seventy popular breeds are profiled in the following section, with short descriptions, a brief history, and sidebars of key facts and additional characteristics. The next two chapters are the real strength of the book, as Fogle discusses canine behavior and how to live with dogs. The final section provides an overview of common health concerns and what can be done to alleviate them, enlivened with numerous sidebars. Fogle's succinct writing style packs a tremendous amount of information into each sentence. Heavily illustrated with beautiful photographs. Nancy Bent

Format: Paperback
Excellent choice! The first few pages tell you about dogs in general, following this with one page of information on each breed (seperating small, medium & large breeds). Then the main thrust of the book is on dog care, which is very helpful, such as what to look for before buying your dog (ex. examining ears, eyes, mouth, body, posture), the vaccination schedule, emergency treatment (choking, CPR, shock), nutrition, toys, collars/leashes, grooming/bathing (which brushes/combs), fleas/ticks, worms (chart to compare them & symptoms), diseases. I ordered a few books on dogs & this is my favorite.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of many books I borrowed from the library when I adopted a dog. Of all the books I read, this was the one I had to own for myself. It is well organized, written for the typical pet owner, and has information that is important and interesting.
