The Kennel Club's Illustrated Breed Standards: The Official Guide to Registered Breeds [9781785035265]

(1 review) Write a Review

A new edition of the definitive guide to the official Breed Standards, authorised by The Kennel Club with updated information and new photography.

The Kennel Club's Breed Standards form the basis for judging dogs at all licensed breed shows. This fully revised edition of the authoritative guide outlines the descriptive 'standards' for each of the 201 pure breeds of dog now recognised by the Kennel Club.

The book has been completely updated by a panel of experts to incorporate the latest standards for all breeds in each of the principal categories - Hound, Gundog, Terrier, Utility, Working, Pastoral and Toy. As well as providing a beautiful colour photograph of each dog, each entry contains a history of the breed, including its origins and function, as well as a full description outlining its essential features. There is also useful advice on the nature of each breed and practical information to help guide anyone who is buying a dog, as well as a glossary of canine terms.

This book is essential reading for anyone who owns, or hopes to own, a pedigree dog and is indispensable for breeders, judges and those professionally involved with dogs.

Founded in 1873, the Kennel Club is the world's oldest authoritative body dealing with dog breeds and breed standards. Today the Kennel Club is concerned with promoting the general improvement of dogs, encouraging responsible ownership, in addition to the conduct of dog shows and trials. The Kennel Club is responsible for the licensing of nearly 5,000 canine competitions a year, all of which are held under Kennel Club Regulations.
