In real life, I do discuss food exactly like how I write in my food review articles. As always my food reviews are scored only on what I've tried and the service expected of that type of establishment.

Not a case of 'how much is that doggy in the window?'
Another no nonsense pet guide from Linda Sacco, who I previously reviewed in (Cat Breeds: Which is Your Perfect Pet?). This is the dog breed companion, perfect for dog lovers or would be dog owners. Featuring over 70 dog breeds this is a highly researched and detailed dog guide.
Dog Breeds: Which is Your Perfect Pet?
Dog breeds divides dogs into 7 categories: toys, terriers, gundogs, hounds, working dogs, utility dogs, and non-sporting dogs. A summary prefaces and describes an overview of the dogs in each category. Photowise there are a smattering of photos with highlights from each category. The photos feature a variety of poses, such as poochs relaxing on couches, side ons and glamour photography. Each dog profile is broken down into height, weight, summary/history, coat and grooming, environment and exercise, compatibility with kids/other pets, and health. A breed's information is clearly set out, which makes it very easy to compare different breeds.
The number of profiles is extensive. This is well written, concise and well researched information. For those seriously considering what breed would suit their personality/lifestyle, this guide is straight to the point and does not simply offer adorable puppy photos to cloud your judgement.
It is refreshing to read a dog breed guide that does not simply follow current fashions. Many pet shops now label mixed breed mutts as a new breed, e.g. spoodle, cavoodle. Rather than providing a section for these mixes, Dog breeds enables readers to assess these mixes by carefully considering the breeds that contribute genes. Each profile provides a good overview of each breeds' temperament. If you are considering a mix, it is easy to compare the temperament of both breeds and use this information effectively.
Dog breeds: Which is Your Pet Perfect Pet? provides a simple to use, straight forward dog breed guide. All the important features of a breed are systematically laid out and the categories allow you to easily eliminate dog breeds that are not compatible straight away. Your perfect pooch is only a few flicks of a page away.
