Best in Breed: Animal Planet's New Dog Breed Guide


Dog Breed Guide The Best Dog Breed Guide Ever!

You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family — except, of course, for the family dog. Since the first arranged dog breeding, humans have been gradually creating the most diverse species in the world: Canis familiaris, the domestic dog.

Whether you are looking for a four-legged couch potato, a spaz, a lap dog or a jogging partner, Animal Planet's fun new dog breed directory is designed to inform you about all the different breeds, but also to provide information that will help you choose the best dog for your lifestyle. Some of the great new features of their dog breed guide also include the ability to sort breeds by AKC group, review care and health information and watch videos about your favorite dog breed.
