Online Resources

There are many resources available to dog owners today via the Internet. Most of the breed clubs and many rescue clubs have very informative websites that detail breed histories, provide grooming advice, and give up-to-date health information as well as contact information. Many of these sites were quite helpful in providing expert breed information for the breed profiles in this book.

I've compiled an appendix of online resource information for the breeds profiled in this book. You can find this appendix at www.wiley.com/go/howellbookofdogs. Unfortunately, at this writing, not all breeds covered in this book have an informational website (or, at least, not one in English). However, since websites come and go, if a breed is not listed in the online appendix, try doing a search for it anyway.

Read On!

As you read on, keep in mind that the information on these pages was provided by many different people who see dogs in a variety of situations: trainers, breeders, groomers, working dog handlers, performance sport participants, and pet owners. Even though only a few people could be quoted directly—primarily due to space restraints—their information is included. So as you think about the next breed you would like to own, take the wisdom of others to heart. This book is here to help you make the right decision and enjoy a happy, successful relationship with your dog. Enjoy!
