I own a Therapy dog and this is a great book to read while visiting children.

And, as a future teacher of elementary school children, this will definitely be in my library.

The story line is easy to follow and encourages participation on the part of the listener.

The number of children being bit by dogs is astronomical. This could be drastically reduced, by showing children (& adults) the right way to approach a dog. A child's only experience may be with a friendly dog, or her own dog. Many dogs see an unknown child running up & reaching out at them as a threat and become fearful &/or aggressive. Both responses can cause a dog to bite. Dog bites and attacks can leave lasting physical and emotional scars on a child. Please, read this to your toddler, to your kindergarten class, to any child you are in contact with. Tell everyone you know, that dog bites can be significantly reduced, IF when we see a dog, we know to STOP, ASK the owner if you can pet their dog & only then approach the dog in a non-threatening way. This book is an awesome tool to intruct this information.

I work in a vet hospital and constantly watch children walk up to dogs they don't know and nearly get harmed because the dog is a aggressive, sick, injured, or just too playful. These are things that every child should learn about and this book should be in every child's home.

I got this book when my son was two and a half and going to
spend sometime at Granny's with her dachshund. He is
so abusive to our cat that I was a bit concerned about what he
might do to her old pooch when she was in the other room.
This book was great. He asked me to read it every day for
two weeks, and when we go out to the park, even though
he is terribly shy with adults, he will ask dog owners diligently,
"May I Pet Your Dog?" before approaching.
The book was well worth the price because I don't worry
about him messing around with strange dogs now.
And it's really a cute book. It won't give your kids
nightmares about saber-toothed dobermans. Mostly,
it teaches etiquette and respect for animals.

Format: Hardcover
A straightforward primer to show small children the safest way to meet and approach strange dogs. Although this doesn't provide much in the way of dramatic storytelling, it does offer very practical information, in a way that may appeal to kids. Ask the owners first; show the dog your hand and let them sniff it before you try petting them; pet dogs from the side, not over their heads; pay attention to warning signs like crouching or growling, and don't make direct eye contact with an angry or anxious dog. As a narrative, this is pretty clunky, but even if you only get one or two readings out of it, the information they impart will be very valuable. Good for parents, too! (ReadThatAgain!)

We got this book for our 3-year old daughter (who loved dogs) - and it has been wonderful. There are some great pointers in here about how to approach dogs so that they feel comfortable with you, and you are (consequently) safer interacting with them. She loves the book, and she puts the lessons in there to work with our dogs all the time.

Working with pre-K and Kindergarten children and children who do not know how to interact with pets, it is a great way to let them "practice" what is in the book with the therapy dog!

My 4 year old son picked this book out at the library. After re-checking it out 2 or 3 times, i finally had to order our own copy. He loved it & wanted it read to him each night at bedtime. He loved the doggy characters & thought they were silly. We have 2 small yorkies & he is very rough with them. This book has helped him be a little bit more 'gentle' with them.

As a person with companion dogs, I cannot say enough good things about this book! And, as a future teacher of elementary school children, this will definitely be in my library. I had first heard about this book on the public radio program of an animal behaviorist. This book teaches children how to meet dogs and how to handle situations that they may encounter, and it does so in a manner that will not instill fear. The illustrations are fantastic and accurately portray the expressions and body language of dogs. This is a good book both for children and for those with companion dogs who may have children visit their home.
