i think that king charles caviler spaniles are the best breed of dog
Well, it takes a lot of time to find all of information needed, and there's no way I could possibly do a breed every week. It would just have to build up slowly... :dogwub:leema;4976 said:I like this idea, too, but how about breed of the WEEK? At least to get started, so there's a bit of a database in the library to start off with and then, once there is a fair collection, make it a monthly event.
I'm also in favor of border terriers being included.
I think that there should be some simple information in dot point like list (e.g. origin, group, grooming needs, etc) and then a longer paragraph or two. I also like the idea of people being able to comment on the breeds, BUT I worry about people posting, "I got bitten by breed x as a kid and now I hate them." I think there may need to be some guidelines.
Also, would members be able to contribute (good quality) photos of the breeds featured?
I don't plan on being able to "improve upon" sites such as this, as they already give a lot of information on each breed. However, if it is here on DTA, people can see an overview, sort of. If they wish to further research the breed, they are free to. I don't plan on being a walking breed history library, but I just thought it would be interesting and helpful to DTA's members. :dogsmile: You have a good point, but not everyone actually wants to go look up breeds. (I know I have visited Pet Planet, Puppy Dog Web, and Dog Breed Info numerous times, but not everyone does.) But, if they can just go to DTA like they always do and learn about the breeds here, maybe it's slightly more convenient.CollieMan;4980 said:How are you going to improve upon, or be different to the breed profiles already held elsewhere, such as at Pet Planet and Puppy Dog Web? I don't mean to be a killjoy, but I'm aware of how much time it's going to take you, and unless you're bringing something new to the mix, it seems that time may well be spent on just reinventing the wheel.
Just my thoughts, for what they are worth....

In this case starting with the more popular breeds would be a good idea...
Just a suggestion
... I do know a really cool English Shepherd (named Friday) who does Search and Rescue.
