Combining dog breed profiles, behavior, care, and training in one easy-to-reference volume, Top Dog contains everything you need to know about our canine companions. At the core of the book is an extensive, exquisitely photographed catalog of more than 400 dog breeds, with the 50 most popular breeds given extended, double-page treatment. Dogs can be seen performing the tasks they were bred to perform-whether herding sheep, retrieving prey, or pulling sleds in the bitter cold-as well as the new roles they have adopted for modern life, such as guide dogs and sniffer dogs, to name but two. A clear and practical section on care covers all aspects of looking after a dog, from handling, grooming, and nutrition to breeding, exercise, and health. The training program is fully illustrated with step-by-step photographic sequences, offering complete basic obedience training to help both the novice and experienced owner nurture the model hound. With expert advice on how to identify and prevent common behavioral problems, this all-encompassing new handbook offers a fascinating insight into the canine world.
