Meeting a new dog is exciting, but it can also be scary. This humorous how-to manual shows kids the best ways to interact with unfamiliar dogs, providing helpful tips about all sorts of dog behavior. Children often don't understand what dogs' actions mean and can misinterpret a threatening signal for a friendly one and vice versa. Kids and parents will return to Wendy Wahman's playful illustrations again and again for useful reminders: Slow Down. Stay very still. And remember, don't lick thedog!

Great book not only for little ones, but for adults, too. *We* learned about how to approach dogs and what to or not do depending on the reaction of the animal. Allows us to understand the nature of dogs, although I doubt any dog would mind being licked by someone.

I returned the books at the counter on Jan 2 and the staff didn't make any comments when I returned the book. I am wondering what kind of damage with this book and why we are charged with $24.5?

This is a great book about the appropriate ways to behave around dogs such as how to greet and approach dogs you have not met before, giving dogs a treat or asking the owner's permission before petting a dog. The illustrations are wild, large and beautiful!
