Reviews - What do customers think about Dogalog?

Greyhound Ignorance!  Feb 9, 2008
The Greyhound information is way off base in this publication! I have owned greyhounds for over 11 years and can tell you that Fogle does not know this breed. Greyhounds CAN be good companions to children, CAN live in urban areas with no problem, do NOT require vast amounts of exercise, and are NOT suitable for outdoor living in most climates. What a disappointment this book is! Save your money and find a better book.
Beautifully Portrayed Pooches  Aug 28, 2007
This book has great photograhy in it. Each listed breed includes a brief history, standard weight and height, first and current uses, and other names for the breed. It also includes up to six "tags" that describe its personality and other characteristics, such as whether it is best-suited for cold or warm weather, if it requires a lot of grooming, ease of obedience training, how much exercise is needed, whether it is comfortable living in an urban setting, et cetera.

However, while it DOES include some of the more rare breeds (such as the Dandie Ditmont Terrier and the Lancashire Heeler), it DOES NOT include some of the more common breeds (such as the American Eskimo Dog). What I seem to dislike most is that much of the category classification is flawed. For example: Staffordshire Terriers are grouped with "terriers," though they are "mastiffs." This is because there is no "mastiff" category included, which then places bulldogs and the likes with "livestock dogs" (because of their guarding abilities). "Scent hounds" and "sight hounds" are not separated.....

All things considered, however, this is great as a quick reference guide. I bought it as a secondary book to share with my clients. If you have the money and you want DETAILED, completely accurate information, buy Bonnie Wilcox's "The Atlas of Dog Breeds of the World" (my primary resource book). It is THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE book of dog breeds I've ever found. Next best (and about one third of the price) would probably be "The NEW Encyclopedia of Dog Breeds" (emphasis on the NEW) published by Dorling Kingsley.
More for entertainment than education  May 7, 2007
With its clever title and thick, square layout, "Dogalog" grabs your attention right away on the shelves of your favorite bookstore, and a cursory perusal in the aisles will likely sway dog lovers to grab a copy.

Although a functional, if not totally accurate (as others have noted already) resource, the book's strengths are its array of colorful photos and quick facts on dog breeds. Hence, this book is more for entertainment than education.

Younger dog fanciers will especially enjoy flipping through the book. Anyone looking for information on what type of canine to adopt or rescue, however, will find a starting place here, but should expand his or her research to more in-depth sources.
Kids love this book  Mar 29, 2007
O.K. "The Complete Dog Book " it is not but as an additional reference point about our wonderful canine friends it is valuable. We bought this book years back when we were looking to buy a family dog that was good with kids. At the time the children were young(er)and it was perfect for them to participate in the process of finding the right dog for our family. Small book ,small hands, it was ideal for them. It served it's purpose and more as the children were educated about certain things like the classification of dogs etc. The pictures are outstanding and the basic facts suffice for starters. As a complimentary book for understanding our canine companions it is a good book, especially for youngsters. Recommended for dog lovers who need HELP in finding the right breed for the family, but not as the sole reference point.
This is not a very good book for people who love dogs!  Feb 20, 2007
If you want to find out what breed fits you best, this is the book for you. But as a dog history nerd, this book is not the best. The larger version is "The Encyclopedia of the Dog" by Bruce Fogle and also has not correct information, saying that the Labrador Retriever comes from England!!!! That is not correct, and is even more false than saying it came from Labrador, Canada (it came from Nova Scotia). There are also some other problems with it. The condensed version (this book) is just a worse version, being smaller with not as many breeds, and the best ones picked out (like the Dingo, which has an intersting history). All the history sections of the breeds mainly talk about where the dog came from, not the dogs it descended from like the larger version.
