If you're interested in learning about dogs, there are a number of books available to help you get started. Go to the animal and pet section of your local bookstore or library to obtain books about breeds, general care and handling, and competitive sports for canines. If you really want to be hands on, try volunteering at your local animal shelter. You'll experience first hand how to care for and interact with dogs.
Get in contact with your local kennel club - they have a wide variety of activities you and your purebred dog can be involved in - obedience, rally, agility, therapy dog, earth dog, etc. They can point you in the right directly to which activity would fit into your dogs activity level.
