Synopsis

The New Encyclopedia of the Dog With detailed descriptions of more then 420 breeds and varieties of dogs from around the world, an entertaining look at canines throughout history, and invaluable practical advice, The New Encyclopedia of the Dog is the most comprehensive exploration of the canine world ever published. Visual Breed Guide: Specially commissioned, full-color photographs bring to life the delightful variety of the canine community. In these pages, you will find not only familiar breeds such as the Labrador Retriever and the Yorkshire Terrier, but also rarities such as the Kyi Leo and the Prazsky Krysavik (the world's smallest dog), as well as experimental crossbreeds like the Labradoodle and Cockerpoo. Each portrait is accompanied by an authoritative biography of the breed, including its place of origin, historical development, main physical features, and temperament. Complete History: From how dogs evolved from wolves, through the story of their domestication by early humans, to their roles today as comforting friends, workers, and companions in sport, Bruce Fogle illuminates why dogs have achieved a place of honor in the human community. He traces the special position of canines in human history, as well as presenting essential practical information on choosing and caring for a dog. His thorough discussions of canine anatomy (illustrated with diagrams and photographs), behavior, and psychology offer insights into the way dogs learn, and how they see the world around them. For those who can never get enough canine trivia, the author traces the evolution of dogs from wolves to our domesticated side-kicks. Fascinating facts on dogs in art, literature, folklore and religion abound. The New Encyclopedia of the Dog is the ultimate compendium for serious dog lovers.
