Don't Lick the Dog

Don't Lick the Dog: Making Friends with Dogs Wendy Wahman wrote a book that our young readers will absolutely love. Don't Lick the Dog Making Friends with Dogs shows children how to interact and treat unfamiliar dogs. Written in a how-to manual kind of way, this book provides all kinds of great advices for kids for example...

Stand still and let dogs come to you to smell your hand or sniff your shoe.
Gently stroke his chin or chest or rub his cheek
Before you give a treat to Kate, make your hand into a plate.

This is Wendy Wahman's first book and I believe she did a tremendous job keeping the writing alive and accessible to children. I believe our readers will truly understand, learn and appreciate the tips and advices on how to treat new dogs.
