Dog Breed Information

Every pet owner would want to give the best for their dearly loved pooches. Most dog owners buy them dog beds, toys, controlling products and many more. Cats also need proper care and attention. Some people even buy their dog nice accessories, clothing, agility equipment and so much more.

Many people are fond of dogs because they make good companions and they are very loyal to their owners. Some even train them for competitions and to do certain tricks for entertainment. If you are interested in having one, then you should first know about the different dog breeds and how they differ from each other.

It is said that there are more than three hundred breeds of dogs that can be found worldwide but only 150 are recognized by the AKC or the American Kennel Club in the US. These dogs are classified depending on their characteristics and based on their purpose.

The general classifications of dogs are working, sporting, herding, hound, terrier, toy, and non-sporting. The hounds are known for their ability to assist in hunting. They have astounding stamina and great sense of smell.

The greyhound is one of the most popular hound dogs that are used for speed hunting. This is because they have a very keen sight and fast movement. Back then, it was used for hunting deer, fox, hares and many more. Now, it is also used as a racing dog in England.

Hounds are characterized by a slender and strong stature. It has a long head with small but pointed ears. And its fur is smooth but short that is either a combination of white, black or gray.
