If this is a "bible" it is definitely an abridged version - it is missing a number of established breeds (ironically, some I specifically wanted to read up on!). It is nicely produced however.

I am taking a dog training course and need to know the AKC dogs. Breeds, charactaristics, what they look like.
It is like a quick reference guide to The Complete Dog book. Love it.

Poor quality March 5 2009
By citywulf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
The one good point of this book is that it includes all the AKC breeds (as of the date of publication). However, that doesn't overcome its flaws. The biggest problem is the pictures - they are small, poor quality, taken at odd angles that cause distortion, and often don't look much like the supposed breed. I unfortunately have had 2 copies (1 arrived damanged and the seller replaced it rather than refunding, as I requested). The spiral binding on both was stiff and squeaky. The text is standard fare.

A better choice, sadly out of print but still available used, is The Dog Breed Handbook: The Complete Reference From Afgans to Zande Dogs. I also enjoy What Dog? A Guide to Help New Owners Select the Right Breed for Their Lifestyle (What Pet Books?) for its honest presentation of breed traits and multiple gorgeous photos.

Very useful, concise, basic information March 11 2008
By Cherubim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
Sturdy, spiral bound features one breed per page and covers basic information on origin, temperament, upkeep and health. Each breed is rated from 1 to 5 on energy level, exercise requirements, playfulness, affection level, friendliness toward other pets, friendliness toward strangers, ease of training and grooming requirements. A color photo of the head and side view of each breed is included.

Great photos and lots of dog breeds covered June 12 2008
By Hello Kitty Ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I like that this book is easy to breeze through. Each dog breed is listed on a separate, glossy page and the book is set up with a spiral binder. It's better than other dog breed books in being aimed at the consumer who just wants to pick out a breed to buy, not to show. I thought it could go even further in its info about the positives and negatives of each breed as a family pet, for instance, known to bark a lot or being too active for the average suburban household. It briefly touches on these issues. Also, more info on the grooming needs would be good. It says how often to groom but doesn't explain fully if they mean take it to a groomer or do it yourself, and how much this would cost. Some of the possible diseases that each breed can be susceptible to are listed, but no info is given on the illnesses (fatal? possible cures? how often does it occur?). It does show lots of breeds, so that's nice.
