Pedigree Points: Dogs: A Handbook of What Judges Look for in Over 100 of the Most Popular Breeds

Some brief overview of book

Purebred dogs come in many shapes and sizes, and when entered in competition, each breed is judged by its own set of standards. Just as important both to owners and judges is their awareness of differing personalities among different canine breeds. Personality traits arose over many generations as each breed was developed to serve a specific role, whether as working dog, guard dog, or hunter.

This profusely illustrated book tells dog fanciers exactly which physical and personality traits judges look for when officiating at dog shows. A helpful directory presents each breed separately and includes a brief pedigree history, a representative color photo of the dog, and a point-by-point description of ideal standards for judging the dog's physical features, general appearance, temperament, and gait. Dog fanciers are advised on faults to look for when selecting a pup or preparing a dog for showing.

This uncommonly handsome book can serve as an ideal reference for all dog enthusiasts, from casual admirers to professional judges. More than 200 photos and illustrations.
