My Dog! A Kid's Guide to Keeping a Happy and Healthy Pet by Michael J. Rosen

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.
