Welcome to Dog Encyclopedia
As dog owners and people who care deeply for animals and
wildlife, we wanted our Dog Encyclopedia to be a website that could
empower pet owners to create the most positive, loving
environment for their dogs. Dog Encyclopedia realizes that owning a
dog is like adding a new member to your family.
Dogs have been selectively bred for thousands of
years, sometimes by inbreeding dogs from the same ancestral lines,
sometimes by mixing dogs from very different lines. This breeding
process continues today, resulting in a wide variety of breeds, hybrids
and types of dogs. From the large
tiny toy poodle
each breed varies in fur, coloring and activity level . One of the great
features of dogs is that they are unique.
Our complete alphabetical listing of dog breeds provides potential dog
owners with valuable information, regarding the size, temperament, and
special needs of each type of dog. On each individual dog breed page
viewers will also find the dog's AKC group, along with the the dogs
weight, coloring, and height.
While some dog breeds look similar, dogs often take on the personality
of their owner. Even among the same litter you may find very different
looks and personalities with each puppy. While the information at Dog
Encyclopedia is meant as a guideline for choosing your new dog or puppy,
you will always be the final judge if a pet is right for your and your
Dog Encyclopedia's goal is to provide a quality online experience for
dog owners and pet lovers. Dog Encyclopedia is designed to be both
an educational and enjoyable website for dog owners. By using simple,
concise language and adding photos throughout the site, Dog Encyclopedia
has created a place for both experienced and new dog owners.
These are just a small sample of the wonderful dog breeds found in Dog
