Publisher's Summary

Choosing the perfect dog can be confusing, especially for first-time owners.

It's easy to fall in love with a breed and rush into buying a gorgeous border collie or an intimidating Doberman pinscher, but this is a mistake! Buying a dog should be a long, careful process - a new dog is, after all, a new family member and every dog deserves more than a loving home - they deserve the right loving home!

There are a number of things that potential dog owners need to consider before making the leap. Does the dog breed you've fallen in love with fit in with your lifestyle? If you work eight hours a day, can the dog be left on its own in your home, or will it become stressed and destructive? If you have other pets, will the dog get along with them? Is the dog child-friendly, or will it quickly lose patience?

It works both ways; a new dog must fit in with their owner's lifestyle, but new owners also need to have the skills and patience necessary to provide adequate care for their new canine companion. Prospective dog owners should ask themselves, "Do I have the time to give this breed all the exercise it needs? Do I have the energy to keep up with them? Am I willing to buy it a doggie jacket when the weather gets chilly? Do I want a mellow lap dog or an excitable adventuring buddy?"

This book will analyze 50 unique dog breeds in terms of their protection ability, trainability, playfulness, exercise needs, and adaptability. If you're a prospective dog owner or even just an enthusiast, you need this book!

    If you have a pet dog or if you have a plan to buy or adopt one, then I am pretty sure this book will give you good assist. I am really thankful to my elder cousin who highly suggested this book and after listening it I was so pleased. By the help of this book, I have learned each dog breed’s strengths and weaknesses and how they respond. Throughout it I have understood about the differences between companion dogs, working dogs and herding dogs. I am really so impressed by reading this book and definitely I will recommend it to all interested readers and listeners.

    Excellent source! I am bowled over! The wealth of information covered in this guide is awesome. Anything one wants to know about Dogs and dog breeds is covered here. A great amount of love for dogs and research went into this book, that is obvious. The listeners is not only introduced to all the breeds, but also learns about characteristics, behavior, possible health issues and the best environment for any particular dog. Worth recommending to all!

    "Love Dogs..."

    A newborn dog is a family member so, we always should be careful while breeding. The breeding is the most important part for our pets. This book is really helpful for the dog owners, especially, for those who are still new to this world...This book analyzes 50 unique dog breeds in terms of their relative protection ability, trainability, playfulness, exercise needs, and adaptability. This book is equally helpful for the prospective dog owner or enthusiast. I highly recommend this book.

    "5 out of 5 great grab!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Dog Breeds the most enjoyable?

    Its also true that shiba inus are not the most energetic of breeds, they need exercise on daily basis to stave off boredom and aggression.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked it so much that I immediately ordered one for my daughter and grandson. Pictures are good descriptions are accurate as I have owned many different breeds.

    Good!!YES i listen more than 2 times . All the scene are very interesting and most enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are a lot of things to consider and it should be done in a very careful process. Choosing a dog is like having a new baby, so you must be very meticulous in it!

    Having a dog is not just having a pet. It takes a whole new effort to keep one. You must take your love into a different level because owning a dog does not end there. You must take good care of it and treat it as a new member of the family. If you are confused as to what kind or breed you like, well this book is for you. It will introduce to you a concise analysis of 50 dog breeds. It's a good read actually. It helps a lot in many ways.
