Great Reads

List of useful reading for people interested in dogs

I am a reader. I read a lot - and many times my selection is about dogs. I am especially keen on reading about Canine genetics, anatomy, locomotion, reproduction,  breed specific books, health, mentality and judging dogs. The canine history also holds my interest.

I am listing here some of the articles and books that have inspired me. I hope you will enjoy! Just jump over the listings in Norwegian or Finnish  language if you are English speaking. Some of them are quite old, and have some out-dated information but nevertheless, they meant a lot to me at the time.

A star * indicates a book I really enjoyed. Two stars: my reference book.
