It provides up-to-date information, alphabetically arranged, about the history of dogs, the development and characteristics of the great breeds, the world’s leading dog shows, the breed requirements, the training, care and management of dogs, and the major canine ailments. Full-colour plates are included of 125 leading breeds, and there are over 500 additional illustrations in black and white, many of which have been specially commissioned to make the book both compelling and comprehensive.”
