Kids Get Dog Smart!
When kids teach kids about dogs, everybody has fun. Read this book and you'll learn how to watch a dog and figure out what he's feeling. You'll know whether a dog is happy or wants to be left alone, and you'll learn how to teach him to do cool things like "Sit," "Come," "Lie Down" and have good manners around food, just like a professional dog trainer would. Show everyone how you can help a dog be a Good Dog!
For parents and teachers
Children need to learn to play safely with dogs in their family and in the community. Written by children for children, Good Dog! teaches children to read a dog's body language and use this knowledge to be kind, respectful, and safe around dogs. It also builds children's confidence by teaching them how to train dogs with positive reinforcement-and to have fun doing it. The positive, non-punitive training methods are endorsed by professional dog trainers and child safety experts. But don't tell the kids that-tell them it's just plain FUN!
