Dogwise Publishing is pleased to announce the arrival of a very special new book from a couple of very special authors: Good Dog! Kids Teaching Kids About Dog Behavior and Training by Evelyn Pang and Hilary Louie. We've believed for a long time that someone needed to write a book about dog behavior and training targeted towards young readers in the 8-12 year old range. There are lots of "read-to" books for little kids, but as children become good readers and interested in actually understanding and training dogs there has been little to choose from. So we were ecstatic when we were presented with the opportunity to work with two amazing young women on this book - not only did they write the book, but they illustrated it as well!
The premise of the book is that when kids teach kids about dogs, everybody has fun! Kids will learn how to watch a dog and figure out what he is feeling or doing by gaining an understanding of body language and calming signal basics. And they can learn how to teach him cool things like "Sit," "Come," and "Stay" just like professional trainers do - and even learn how to use clickers and targets when they train! And, perhaps most importantly, kids can learn how to be safer around dogs they may come in contact with. So if you are not a kid, but know a kid who is showing an interest in dogs, check this book out and get him or her started off right working with dogs.
Thanks from all of us at Dogwise.
