Great resource but not the best for choosing a dog
on December 23, 2011
I have bought 3 books. "Paws to Consider," "Choosing a Dog for Dummies," and "The right dog for you"
When it came to helping me choose a dog breed, I found "Paws to Consider" to be the best.
"Choosing a Dog for Dummies" has a lot of great information. On top of its large dog breed section it has information on medical terms, how to look at good places to find dogs, and some things for preparing for a new dog. I will use this book in the future. However, as far as helping me choose a dog, this book did not help narrow down the choices. The dog breeds are broken into chapters but not as helpful as "Paws to Consider." If you look at the Table of Contents, you will see how a large part of the book is more focused on other (although important) aspects of dog ownership.
I found that I did not take advantage of the "Look Inside" feature. However, I do not regret my purchases. I found each of them are useful in their own way. In conclusion, LOOK at the table of contents and see if the book is laid out the way you like it.
Side Note:I also wrote reviews for the other books if you are curious about my thoughts on the other books.
