GENERAL GUIDES

You might want to skim through some breed encyclopedias, although the pictures may be misleading - for one thing, all of the dogs shown are champions! - and the descriptions may be rather skimpy. Here are some you might look at:

Next, read some breed books. Once you or your friends settle on the breeds you're interested in, check the library or bookstores for books on those particular breeds (typically with titles like The Complete Golden Retriever, All About Aussies, The Versatile Border Collie, This is the Alaskan Malamute, Today's German Shepherd, and so on). Libraries sometimes have these books.

Special mention: Bonnie Bergin's Guide to Bringing Out the Best in Your Dog has excellent advice on matching up human and canine personalities and understanding how your dog learns. Bergin founded Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), one of the first assistance dog organizations in the U.S.
