Editorial Reviews

Orange County Register
"Summer's weeks are a great time for kids and canines to reconnect, and Maxine Rock has some fabulous ideas for keeping both of them happy." --Orange County Register
Children's Literature - Cathy Greenwood
This book should be required reading for new dog owners of all ages. Engaging and practical illustrations match the sense of fun and respect for man's best friend that sets the tone for this very user-friendly book. There are a large variety of games, activities and tricks so that there is plenty to appeal to many different types of dogs and owners. Topics range from "How to Approach a Dog" to "Biking with Your Dog" to "Camera Hounds: Posing Your Pup." The book is fun to read in one sitting, and it is also easy to use in small doses, as the dog owner will want to do to put the words into action. Important health and safety tips-for dog and human-are included as part of each chapter.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-As the introduction states, "This book is about having fun with your pet, not pet care or training." For first-time owners, however, it does provide some of the basics of choosing a dog and keeping it healthy and happy. Whether readers want to jog with their dog, play ball, or enter shows, this title gives advice on how to do so. The clear, step-by-step instructions on training, safety tips, and many other informative, often humorous tidbits, result in a lively read. Dog bones border the top of each page, paw prints highlight each page number, and simple black-and-white cartoon drawings illustrate the text. This title stresses that owners should enjoy their pets and treat them kindly.-Carol Kolb Phillips, The Library, East Brunswick, NJ
