My 12 month old loves this book. We read it often and he studies the pictures. I love the simple rhymes and interesting photographs--especailly "doggy diving." We'll be reading this one for a while.

Great photos and cute rhymes make this a perfect book for our son, especially because he shares his home with two dogs and is exposed to many more at dog agility shows.

I love this book as well as many others of the series. I have often given these books to new parents and everyone raves about them. Never seen a kid not respond to the book. Incredibly cute.

John Schindel has truly outdone himself with this poignant and profound literary masterpiece! His text is descriptive, poetic and profound - chronicling the activities of his eventful and engaged K-9 subjects. The photography of Beverly Sparks compliments Schindel's unparalleled words of wit and insight as a welcome added bonus to this must-have page-turner! What a book!!

What more can I say? This is a wonderful book -- especially for those who love dogs -- John captures not only their lovely, quirky, individual expressions, but their spirits as well...

We have two Golden Retrievers and a 7-month-old baby girl. I love this book, and so does my daughter. The photography is great, and thanks to her furry brother and sister, she is absolutely delighted by pictures of dogs. I think even a baby without her own dogs would enjoy the great pictures (they show dogs doing different things from fun perspectives, like a dog's eyes peeking through leaves or a dog swimming underwater). It's nice to have a little variety and have some books that have all photography instead of all illustrations like most children's books.

I never write reviews for things on Amazon but I just thought I would say that this is by far my 9 month old's favorite book. He is just at the beginning of really wanting to read with us and having clear favorites with books holding his attention longer than others and this is his absolute favorite. It is the first book to even make him laugh. So cute! Great photos. I guess it helps that his favorite member of our family is our dog :)

Good book for those that like doggies. Pages are thick. It's basically dog pictures with short captions. Not going to win any awards and pictures aren't always high quality, but if your child is into dogs, this is a good option - though Sandra Boyton's "Doggies" is my favorite board book about dogs.

The newest of John's board books for babies and toddlers, THE BABIES AND DOGGIES BOOK (March 2015), coauthored with Molly Woodward, brings together an excellent collection of photographs of children from around the world and ... you guessed it ... dogs! Lots of things babies do, doggies do too! This board book explores all of the similar actions shared by baby and baby's best friend.

John is also the author of seven picture books for children 4 - 8 years old, now out of print. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and by day works in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley.
