The Dog Breed Handbook by Joan Palmer is the other dog breed book that I use. This one is much easier to take with you if you are going to a client’s home. It does not contain as much detail as the first dog breed book that I reviewed, but it hits the high points. I also use this one when I am looking for less detail but a good overview of the relevant information pertaining to a particular dog breed.
It does not have as many breeds in it as the other dog breed book, but unless you are looking for a very rare breed it should be in there. I’d recommend you look over both books before you choose one.
