Six secrets dogs wish people knew... that will revolutionize how families relate to dogs! This book is both fantastic and unique. Every dog trainer, groomer, dog walker, shelter worker and general dog aficionado who would like to help parents improve the life of a dog living with children should read this book. It's filled with first-hand experience and stories that illustrate the points in a memorable way.

Illustrated with nearly 100 color photos, this book is one you'll pull out often when talking with clients about their dogs. A valuable tool for everyone who works with dogs and the people who love them.

Kids and dogs have misunderstandings every day. Most aren't serious, but some can be downright dangerous. If a bite occurs, a child could be injured and the dog could lose his home -- or his life! Take the guesswork out of kid/dog interactions using these tips, tricks, and techniques. On every page you'll find things that make your work with dogs -- and their families -- easier.

What professionals are saying about Kids and Dogs
As a dog training and behavior professional without human children, I plead guilty to many of the inappropriate assumptions and unrealistic expectations that trainer/author Colleen Pelar describes in her latest work. This book is an invaluable resource for dog aficionados, professional or not, who seek to make relationships between families and their canine companions more successful.
Pat Miller, author of The Power of Positive Dog Training

Reading Kids and Dogs is like drinking cool, clean water in the middle of a hot, barren dessert! This clear and helpful book fills a gaping hole in the dog literature -- how professionals in the field can help people trying to raise kids and dogs at the same time. I give it all paws up and a body wag from the shoulders back.
