Customer Reviews:

  • GREAT SOURCE FOR DOG
    Any dog fancier or dog owner, whether purebred or mixed breed will enjoy DOG FANCY. It is filled with useful and fun articles and each issue showcases two or three breeds of dog. Additionally, there are articles on veterinary medicine, training, travel, competitions and breeding. None of the articles are so overwhelmingly technical that the average dog owner can't understand them and apply them to their own pet. A great companion magazine to DOG FANCY is DOG WORLD which is more technical and focuses more on the breeder-trainer than just a well-adjusted pet owner....more info

  • Plesantly Surprized!
    My mom used to subscribe to this magazine when I was growing up. I used to read it often throughout my adolesence. However I always found the magazine to be lacking. (Quality, Information.) Now some 10 years later I decided to try the magazine out once again. Since there has been some recent hype going around about it. I got this months newsstand -- April -- issue and the Special Puppy issue. I am in Love! It seems the Dog Fancy has improved by leaps and bounds since my last read. Now it contains an enormous ammount of extremely helpful information as well as stories and such to entertain you....more info
  • great
    Dog Fancy is a very good magazine for the first time dog owner to the experienced one. Most articles are for the pure bred dog, but there is something in every issue for every reader. ...more info
  • Mag for dogs
    Used to read this at my vets and decided to subscribe to it for awhile. Well done mag but you have to like dog showing and all aspects to get the full use of it....more info
  • A Must-Have for Any Dog Owner!!!!
    Dog Fancy is definitely one of the best magazines around for dog owners. There's information on practically every topic available, including health care, training, nutrition, exercise, safety, traveling, selecting a dog, an annual puppy issue, and even cleaning tips. While Dog Fancy praises shelter dogs and mixed-breeds, they also feature 3 breeds in each magazine--usually two fairly well-known dogs and a rare breed. Definitely a must-buy!...more info
  • Dog Fancy is the magazine for dog lovers!
    Dog Fancy magazine contains excellent articles on caring for your pet, along with good training ideas and breeder information. I particularly like the monthly highlight of individual dog breeds....more info
  • All About Dogs
    Dog Fancy is the world's most popular dog magazine and it is a publication I have been reading for more than ten years. I first learned of Dog Fancy when I got an offer in the mail to receive a few trial issues free of charge. Since I am a dog owner and confessed dogaholic, I gladly accepted the offer and have been reading Dog Fancy on and off ever since.

    This magazine has gradually improved over the years and it now stands as one of my favorite magazines. What I like most about Dog Fancy is the fact that it makes every effort to cover something of interest to any dog owner- casual or serious- in every single issue. This is one of the reasons why Dog Fancy contains so many monthly departments. It has more departments than most other magazines and while the number might seem excessive at first, it is nice that so many different topics are covered. No matter what you want to learn, discover, or discuss about dogs, you can find something related to your interest in every issue.

    Dog Fancy offers advice on dog care, tips on behavior modification, coverage of dog shows, and profiles of different breeds. Each issue of Dog Fancy features a photo of a specific breed on the cover with a full article on the inside that discusses the breed, its personality, and its characteristics. In addition to the dog on the cover, there are other breed profiles, too, and in the center of each issue is a colorful pull- out poster of the featured breeds. Kids, in particular, love this pull- out and many will want to grab it and place it on the refrigerator or on their bedroom wall.

    Dog Fancy has lots of departments and features and one way the magazine helps readers find articles of interest is through its "On the Cover" diagram. This helpful feature shows a small snapshot of the cover along with arrows pointing to each article mentioned on the cover and the page to turn to find the article. This is very helpful. I cannot count the number of magazines I have read that include a teaser message on the front cover that piques my interest but then buries the related article somewhere inside. Dog Fancy has eliminated that problem once and for all with this very helpful diagram. If it's on the cover and you want to read about it, you can find the article in a matter of seconds.

    Another way that Dog Fancy is very helpful is with its classified ads. Now, I admit that I don't usually look at classified ads in magazines and I rarely endorse them. But Dog Fancy has one unique classified feature: Its Dog Breeder Directory. Here, a person can lookup a breed and then quickly get in touch with a breeder. Finding a puppy is easy if you're looking for a common breed like a Golden Retriever, Poodle, Labrador Retriever, or Cocker Spaniel. But what if you want a rare breed like a Catalan Sheepdog, Sloughi, or Beauceron? These dogs and others like them are so rare it may be impossible to find one in your area. But Dog Fancy's Dog Breeder Directory helps link breeders with buyers, letting potential owners know who to contact to find the desired breed.

    Dog Fancy is an informative, helpful magazine that makes a great choice of reading material for dog owners of all stripes. Whether you're a dog breeder, a dog show enthusiast, or just a casual dog owner you will find something of value in Dog Fancy. It is my favorite dog magazine and its one I recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in the subject of canines.

  • Great gift for the dog lover
    If you have a dog, or know of a real dog lover, I'd consider getting this as a gift for yourself or them. This magazine can be kitschy at times, but for the most part, it imparts some very useful information. This is especially true of new advances in dog medicine, products to avoid, etc.

    Bottom Line: Grab an issue from the newstand and if you like, get a subscription....more info
  • Dog info reading for the family
    We received two issues so far and enjoy reading them. We, me and the kids, read it all on the day it arrives and scan through it for days. We enjoy it and provide some important information that you probably can get elsewhere but nice to have on hand....more info

  • Very poor quality magazine
    Don't waste your money on this magazine. It is 60-70 advertisements, and the articles are not very informative. It might be appropriate for children, but not adults that are serious about educating themselves about dogs....more info
  • Dogs Everywhere!!!
    How can you argue when it comes to dogs? This magazine has been around for a long time, and it gives what it promises. Its great. I love the resources it provides me. I've a dog owner for a long time, and I believe in the choices the magazine provides...more info
  • Magazine Review

  • Dog Fancy Magazine Subscription
    Have received 2 copies so far and the magazine is fine...seems a bit more geared to puppy owners and my dog is 1yr 4mos now. Will reserve final judgment on it after more copies come my way.

  • check out Dog and Kennel
    this magazine is not at all what i expected. if you want the most for your money, check out dog and kennel magazine....more info
  • Flashy & technical
    I don't get as much enjoyment out of it as I do "Best Friends" and "Bark" magazine. It's a little more dry and seems slanted towards pure breds....more info
  • good magazine
    Just got my first 2 copies. It seems to cover many different subjects and features different breeds, ads for new products, interesting articles, and classifieds. Its the only Dog mag that I get so I cannot compare it to others....more info
  • Full of good information
    I have read Dog Fancy for a year now and I find it to be full of useful information for people that have a dog or thinking about getting a dog. The only problem that I have with it is, that sometimes a whole issue may be designed around a topic that you are not interested in, so the whole issue is of no use to you....more info
  • Overzealous Start Up Subscription
    While I did get my start up magazine prior to 6 weeks, I got 3 in a row in less than a week. A month's prior, that month and then the next month. Guess they want my subscription to be over with soon. ...more info
  • Disappointing
    Although there are a few articles in this magazine that I enjoy reading, at least 4 pages are devoted to breeders trying to sell puppies! As a dog lover, I fully believe in making adoption your first option and all those puppy mills out there aren't helping with the unwanted pet population. I will not re-subscribe to this magazine....more info
  • dog book
    This is one of the best magazines I have ordered on dogs. I have found a lot of interesting articles. Well worth it....more info
  • My absolute favorite magazine
    Each month I am so excited when I receive my DF issue! I always read it cover to cover and learn so much about how to properly care for my dog. It has wonderful training tips and expert methods, talks about finding the right diet, profiles different breeds, and even provides stories and news straight from the dog world. And so much more! Another reason I like it so much is because I sent in two letters, and they published them both! That was exciting. I always learn something new with each issue! So I suggest you subscribe to DF if you are a dog lover, a dog owner, or both (like me)....more info
  • One of the greatest magazines I've read
    Dog Fancy is an excellent magazine for all parents of the furry four-legged tail waggin' love bugs out there. It is very informative and I, myself, refer to previous magazines all the time. It's your own personal library full of information that you can use now and even in the future. I've subscribed to Dog Fancy and Dog World. Dog World is for parents who are mainly in dog shows and agility. While Dog Fancy is for the average parent who is not in the sports realm. I love Dog Fancy magazine and I know that parents who love their "kids" as much as I love mine, will enjoy this magazine as much as I do. ...more info
  • Dog Fancy Review
    I recently got a subscription for Dog Fancy and I am delighted. The articles are informative and the pictures of the featured dogs of the month are just beautiful! Love getting this magazine every month!...more info
