"Even if A Puppy's New Home imparted just the basics of humane education, teaching kids boundaries, dog bite prevention, or what to expect from certain breeds and mixes to help families select the right 'fit' for their home and prevent 'shelter returns' I'd be sold on supporting this project...
...But they've shared their plans to delve deeper into nuanced material that has 'crossover appeal' with human life lessons.
From PTSD topics and bullying scenarios to 'don't touch my muzzle' life lessons which could easily apply to adverse childhood experiences (and flip the script on ACES) "kidlit" that uses dogs as a device to impart touchier subjects would appeal to early childhood educators and psychologists FAR beyond the basic books about being a critter companion..." - Amy Jussel, ShapingYouth.org
From the Author
A Puppy's New Home book series teaches kids how to care for their specific breed through interaction, helping them to understand specific breed behavior, health management, and their origins. Uniquely, our books also focus on social and emotional development for early childhood learners to adults and every age in between.
Our goal is to help decrease the number of dogs that end up without homes because families were not prepared to take care of their new pet.
