Don't waste your money30 October 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Can't believe the positive reviews for this book. Maybe I received an early edition. It was poorly set out, double-spaced (takes up more room so it looks like you are getting more for your money) and had no index - a problem and some breeds were in alphabetical order and some weren't. Popular breeds like the labrador and boxer weren't mentioned. Some breed photographs were plain wrong (malinois instead of German Shepherd, borzoi instead of greyhound, smooth coated dog instead of pekingese), making me question the author's breed knowledge. The Great Dane and the Bernese, amongst others were rated as equally trainable to the Border Collie, in spite of being 12th and 31st respectively on the scientific trainability scale (Coren), well behind the Border Collie at #1. Some of the training information was OK (although I don't see "Wagging Tails" as a problem!), but some was dodgy - like teach your your children to dominate your dog (with no advice on how) - a great way to get them bitten. I can see how people with little dog knowledge would be impressed with this book - but they are the very people who need the accurate information this book doesn't provide. I have been training people to train their dogs, and competing, stewarding and judging in obedience competitions for many years, so I do have some knowledge to base my criticism on. My copy is going in the recycling - and it wasn't cheap!

More dog breeds needed7 March 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Information given was interesting but I wish it had covered more breeds. 50 breeds seems like a lot but there were unfortunate omissions in my opinion: Labs, poodles, cocker spaniel, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Havanese, Maltese. These breeds are very attractive to prospective dog owners and should have been included. The section on dog behaviors was very good and informative.
Not enough training and difference information between breeds.22 August 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
OK book for dog breeds but doesn't give enough differentiation pictures between breeds.

Not for my dog but good for others!22 September 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Didn't have anything about pitbulls but pretty informative about the breeds it does have. I wish the description had listed what breeds are covered in the book.
