Atlas of Dog Breeds
popular for reference
TFH Publications Inc has produced many books for dog lovers and dog breeders, and the Atlas of Dog Breeds is possibly the best-known of them all. Written by Dr Bonnie Willcox and Chris Walkowicz the atlas comes in two volumes and is already in its fourth reprint.
It is one of the most colourful and comprehensive of dog books on the market, so it should come as no surprise that it has been high on the list of books bought as gifts or for the home reference library.
One very successful spinoff from the atlas is The Mini Atlas of Dog Breeds written by Andrew De Prisco and James B Johnson. This one is a true field guide for dog enthusiasts and has been recommended by many dog clubs for its reader-friendly layout and comprehensive content.
There are 912 pages and over 1100 colour photographs in the original atlas.
Another book published by TFH is Canine Lexicon, written by Andrew De Prisco and James B Johnson - an encyclopaedia/dictionary that the dog owner will love. This book covers more breeds than most, and also contains information on health, showing and breeding, veterinary terms, anatomy, and more. Over 1300 full colour pictures in this one.
Also from the same publisher are: Dog Behaviour, Dog Breeding for Professionals, The Complete Dog Buyer's Guide, All Breed Dog Grooming for the Beginner, Proper Care of Dogs, Everybody can Train their own Dog, Dog Training, A Children's Guide to Dog Training, and All (160) Breed Dog Grooming.
TFH also published one of our previously featured books, Siberian Huskies, by Beverly Pisano, which attained the status of the Number One best selling Siberian Husky book.
The placing was well deserved as that book is well-planned and easy to read, its chapters well indexed, and whatever the reader wants to find out about Huskies it is certain to be listed.
