Authoritative text, crystal-clear photography and a systematic approach make the "Dorling Kindersley Handbook of Dogs" the most comprehensive and concise recognition guide to dogs of the world. Packed with more than 1000 full-colour photographs of over 300 breeds, it is designed to cut through the complex process of identification to enable you to recognize a breed quickly and easily. The book features a photo-encyclopedic approach. It is expertly written and authenticated. Each breed entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight the dog's chief characteristics and distinguishing features. Fur 'swatches' give a unique indication of coat colours while colour-coded bands provide at-a-glance facts for quick reference. Identification made easy - for beginners and established enthusiast alike, the Dorling Kindersley "Handbook of Dogs" traces the evolution of the domestic dog, explains the difference between pedigrees and non-pedigrees, looks at how breeds are classified and examines their characteristics in detail. It also gives tips on choosing dogs and exhibiting them successfully. A visual key helps you recognize the different dog breeds and guides you to the correct entry while a concise glossary explains the technical and scientific terms used.
