Dog Quiz for Kids

Dogs perform many roles in society from companionship, assisting police and aiding disabled people. Dogs vary in shape, size, and colours. The word 'canine' is how zoologists refer to all mammals with snouts and non-retractable claws, so all dogs are canine. (Note: A snout is the portion of an animal's face which is portruding, consisting of its nose, mouth, and jaw.) Enjoy our dog quiz!
