Dog Breed Coloring Pages
Do you love dogs? Which is your favorite dog breed? I have been creating dog breed coloring pages for many different dog breeds. I have sorted them according to the groups which have been given by the American Kennel Club - sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, herding, and non-sporting. Other countries have slightly different categories or ways of classifying the different breeds.

All the coloring sheets on this page are my own pictures or adaptations of public domain pictures (from wpclipart) or from morguefile so please do not upload them anywhere else on the web. Feel free to link to this page but please do not link directly to the png file on docs.google.

About Sporting Dogs
Sporting dogs, sometimes known as gun dogs, help hunters when they are hunting game birds. Some breeds in this category (such as pointers and setters) specialize in locating the bird and / or preventing its escape, some (such as spaniels) will flush out the bird, while other breeds (such as retrievers) will retrieve the prey after it is shot down. These breeds are generally alert and active, requiring regular exercise.

About hound dogs
Hound dogs were originally bred to chase, or hound their quarry. Some hunt by sight (such as greyhounds, afghan hounds, and borzois) and tend to have stamina and speed to enable them to catch their prey. Other hounds (such as beagles, blood hounds, and basset hounds) hunt by scent.

- Basset Hound
About working dogs
Dogs are very eager to work alongside humans. The working dogs in this category were bred for their strength and courage. Working dogs are used to rescue, guard, pull and haul. They are used in police and military work. Because of their size, it is important to ensure that when these dogs are kept as pets, they are well trained.
