    :educated: I am looking for recommendations for a book or books that cover different dog breeds – what groups they belong to – bit of history about them – general stuff but accurate.  Anyone any suggestions as a starting point.  :help:

    Aware that I have good knowledge about my own breed, characteristics, known health problems etc but very little knowledge about other breeds.  So best start at the beginning.  I want to learn the alphabet of dogs  ;D

    The Canine Lexicon published by TFH is a dog bible!!  It’s huge and I think it is quite expensive, I won mine.  It covers dog breeds worldwide. There is also the Kennel Club Book of Illustrated Breed Standards published by the UK Kennel Club.  An old book I have is called Dogs of the World and has nearly every breed in with photos.  Amazon and second hand book shops are good sources to look.

    I like all of these but for a cheaper grab you can buy on the KC site the Illustrated Breed Standards
