Illustrations, text, charts, tables and icons make it an ideal reference for all dog lovers, who will enjoy flipping through the pages. The over 450 breeds are thoroughly researched and represent canines from around the world.

There are ancient breeds and modern breeds, including the "designer dogs" that have become so popular in recent years. The over 450 breeds are organized into various categories, such as type (which share loosely common ancestry and traits), purpose, and more. For example, Spitz-Type Dogs typically have thick and dense fur, pointed ears and muzzles, and puffy tails that curl up and over their rears. They descend from ancient breeds that came from Arctic regions. Spitz dogs include the Akita, Canaan, American Eskimo, and the Pomeranian. Each breed is described on one page and includes these details: English and any alternative names, place of origin and year of first known introduction Icons and keys indicating all available coat colors; exercise requirements; graph indicating average weight, height and life expectancies At a Glance chart rating Intelligence; Ease of training; Affection; Playfulness; Good guard dogs; Good with children; Good with other dogs; and Grooming required.

The exuberant, exhilarating photographs of dogs underwater that have become a sensation From the water's surface, it's a simple exercise: a dog's leap, a splash, and then a wet head surfacing with a ball, triumphant. But beneath the water is a chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents. From leaping Lab to diving Dachshund, the water is where a dog's distinct personality shines through; some lounge in the current, paddling slowly, but others arch their bodies to cut through the water with the focus and determination of a shark. In more than eighty portraits, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel captures new sides of our old friends with vibrant underwater photography that makes it impossible to look away. Each image bubbles with exuberance and life, a striking reminder that even in the most loveable and domesticated dog, there are more primal forces at work. In Underwater Dogs, Seth Casteel gives playful and energetic testament to the rough-and-tumble joy that our dogs bring into our lives.

Two experienced veterinarians and authors have written this authoritative and detailed guide, which covers a dog's life from puppyhood to old age. It describes all canine diseases and conditions, symptoms, prevention and treatment. It tells dog owners how to care for illnesses and injuries at home and when to call for a vet. Warning symptoms in the margin denote specific characteristics and warnings related to particular diseases. The book helps people selecting and caring for their first dogs. Buyers and breeders are given charts and notations of inherited disorders and traits to help them as they choose their dogs. One major new feature of the Third Edition is a separate chapter covering holistic and natural medicine for dogs, including acupuncture, natural medicine, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, homeopathy, flower essences, tissue salts, chiropractic massage and grooming. The chapter on old age and death is now supplemented by a section on death and coping with the grief that can follow the death of a loved animal.
