"My Dog!" covers everything from the basics of handling, feeding, and grooming to history, lore, and the kinds of fun facts kids will always remember (dogs have a sense of smell a million times better than ours; the oldest dog on record, Bluey, lived to be 29). It tells kids how to train their dogs, with illustrations - including action commands like Sit, Stay, Come, and Go to Your Place, and behavioural commands like Speak and Thank-You. There are the simple health checks kids can do. It includes a How to Speak Dog section to insure that kids and dogs remain best friends - including why a raised, wagging tail doesn't always mean "I'm happy," and the important difference between a Yelp! and a Yowl! Even a recipe for Carob "Cocoa" for kids and dogs to bond over after a brisk winter walk is included. Included with the book is a field guide to 75 breeds of the most popular and family-friendly dogs kids are likely to meet - each illustrated with a gorgeous full-colour photograph and profiled with essential facts, including behavioural insights that make it an invaluable guide to choosing a family pet.
