Dog Breed Facts for Fun! will help you find out how much you know (or don't know) about different breeds of dogs? Can you name what dog breed traveled to America on the Mayflower? Which one helped Richard Byrd as he explored the continent of Antarctica? Or the type of dog that can jump up to six feet high from a sitting position (If you do, you might want to rethink your fence if you're going to get one)! Dogs are one of the most beloved pets in any typical household. They're loyal, friendly, and simply brilliant companions to have, no matter if you're a large, extended family, or a bachelor enjoying the single life. Dogs are not all created equal however, as each one is of a distinctive breed, and each breed comes with its own unique history, abilities, and challenges (for example, it would be a challenge to make a Chihuahua a guard dog). The book contains questions about all of the A dog breeds (such as the Airedale Terrier, Alaskan Husky, Alaskan Malamute, American Cocker Spaniel, American Bulldog, Australian Cattle Dog, and Australian Shepherd), which is sure to entertain any dog lover, from child to adult. Even better, the quiz is enhanced by pictures of the dogs and the associated people and places. This adds a new level of education for kids as they learn subjects such as history and geography from simple dog breed facts!
