“This visual guidebook to choosing the perfect breed of dog finds various breeders shedding light on topics such as canine history, household requirements, and exercise and grooming needs, while also showing each type of dog at work, play, and rest – providing a slew of practical information. Highly recommended. Three and a half Stars.” – Video Librarian
“…clever morphing graphics and excellent video footage… …this is the only guide available in a DVD or video format which lets viewers see the dogs in action (rather than just a still photograph).
Users can choose to start the movie and view each breed in alphabetical order, or page through a multi-page alphabetical index to skip to a specific breed… The technical quality, however, is excellent, with rich, full-color video and clear spoken audio, although in the Great Pyrenees audio portion the sound seems somewhat muffled… The transitions between footage and graphic information, and between breeds, are smooth with interesting graphics… The sound track includes different types of music that, in some cases, is thematic with some of the dog breed names; for example, an accordion plays lilting music that brings to mind the French Riviera while watching the segment on the French Bulldog, and the German Shepherd segment features a snappy marching tune.” – Educational Media Reviews Online
