Reviews for Dog Training for Kids: Fun and Easy Ways to Care for Your Furry Friend

A must read for kids thinking about getting a dog or puppy. An extremely informative guide for children that will set them up for success in understanding, caring for, and training their new best friend. One of a kind book! --Kristin Sells, Senior Canine Behavior Counselor CPDT-KA, Biscuits & Bath NYC This book is written in a way that my child could follow along with the tutorials easily, especially when paired with the detailed illustrations. As a parent, I appreciate the positive language the author used to encourage children to be kind and patient with dogs as well as themselves. --Celeste A. Ramirez, President and Owner of CARA Construction Management, mother of Catherine (11-year-old dog owner) My daughter is a dog lover, but not a fan of reading. She could not put this book down! My child has read it more than once because it doesn't feel like a boring manual, and there is so much to learn about dogs. I feel like now she knows more than most people do! --Yuan Wang, mother of Siena (8-year-old dog owner)
