Editorial Reviews

Review

Jan Dohner has knocked another one out of the park with her new book Farm Dogs. It's a fantastic introduction to the wide variety of breeds that are working on farms across the nation. Dog lovers will adore this large volume, with its pleasing layout, and packed with photos from beginning to end.
- The Shepherd Magazine


An in-depth and beautifully illustrated breed guide to a hardworking class of dogs, Farm Dogs is hard to resist even if you live in a city apartment. . ."
- The Bark magazine

She knows 93 breeds and knows them well. Covering rare finds and up-and-comers in the working world. . . If you have a working dog this will only help you understand him and his kin better. And if you are an informed future-owner - you couldn't make a better investment. A great guide that is easy to read and worth its weight in premium kibble."
​- Jenna Woginrich, author of Cold Antler Farm

"This guide is an in-depth look at the history of dog breeds that have been an invaluable part of farmwork for centuries. Their roles have typically included herding livestock, controlling vermin, protecting the flock from predators, and serving as general farmhand companions and helpers. Along with introductory chapters that include information about general farm-dog history, and choosing the right dog, the author then covers all 93 breeds in extensive detail. These profiles include information about their origins, size, color, coat type, temperament, and history. There are also gorgeous color photos of each of the different breeds. 
 
This is a beautiful, well-organized, and comprehensive title. It will leave readers with a richer understanding and deep respect for these dogs, their fascinating history, and their relationship to farmers and farm work throughout the ages. Highly recommended for public, academic, and school libraries."
- Booklist, April 2017
