By: Beatriz Scaglia


Ever-loyal companions and family members, the domesticated canine traces his decendency to the grey wolf. Dogs have many roles in society including working dogs, herders, lap dogs, police dogs or the eyes for the visually-impaired. Dogs vary significantly from breed to breed, in size, coloring, temperament and intelligence.

Sit, stay, and read all about the American Kennel Club, also known as the AKC. Purebred dogs are classified by different national and international registries. The largest in the United States is the AKC. The AKC registers dogs based on their purebred pedigrees. This book explores the conformation show of the AKC, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Best in Show winners, plus more. That’s a good dog show!
