Dogs Rule at 5 Star Dog
Dogs are our best friends, and we are the owners' next best friend. We provide information and support to current and potential pet owners in the form of guides, reports, and informative articles. Our dog breed descriptions offer detailed accounts of breed standards - including the origin, appearance, temperament, maintenance, and health. Information on over 200 breeds is described in these pages. You will also find a breed selection tool and links to related breeds, which are both helpful when selecting a new pet for your family. The picture gallery is the perfect place to view different breeds or upload a photo of your best pal. Please visit our dog pictures page and submit pictures of your best friend- the crazier; the better!
If you are looking for a new pet, we urge you to visit a shelter or rescue organization first. Many spirited and bright animals are given up or turned out. Our dog rescue page offers an in-depth approach to making selection from a rescue or shelter as well as a printable checklist to bring along with you.

Pamper your pooch with our new Pooch Pate treats. They are freshly baked and packaged at the time you place your order. We use only the highest quality, human-grade ingredients which offer great taste and wholesome nutrition.
If you are unable to find an appropriate pet for your family at a local shelter or rescue, visit our dog breeders page. Read about how to select a suitable breeder without choosing – and falling in love with – a pet that may be an inferior specimen of the breed. Backyard breeders and breeders who produce litters solely for profit tend to produce inferior animals that do not adhere to breed standards, which can cause genetic problems, illness, or training and temperament issues. Responsible breeders will work hard to match your family with the perfect pet that matches your housing situation, exercise level, and other family needs.
