    I grew up in a dog loving family, and although I no longer have a pet as I live in the centre of a capital city, can appreciate the excellent quality of the information in 'My First Dog'. Well done to Teddy O'Malley for creating such a user friendly guide to owning a dog, or as I would say, extending your family.The cover is adorable, perfect for attracting a young child and encouraging them to read about the responsibilities involved in making such an important commitment. Teddy O'Malley has added more adorable photographs inside the book, a joyful addition to her useful advice. 'Dogs require time and money.' So true. Also.... 'Whatever you do, don't get a puppy because they are cuter. All puppies become dogs.' I've known a sad case where this happened. As soon as the small cute puppy turned into a large and needy dog, it was sent away. Not fair.The potty training section is invaluable and easy to understand. This part of the book is essential reading for anyone who has never looked after an animal. Kids tend to focus on the cuddly fun part of dog owning, overlooking the work required!'My First Dog' is a must buy if you know any children who would like to adopt a dog.

    Are you thinking about getting a dog? My advice is to read this first. Should you choose a puppy or a senior dog, what supplies will you need, what commands does your pet need to learn and how do you teach them? With help on grooming, potty training, vaccines and more, this book has valuable information for new dog owners.

    Good, sound advice for young dog lovers. I'd have loved to have read a book like this before I had my own first dog. Lots of tips, written in a simple manner, without lots of extra confusing terms and big words. Just the facts, to help kids decide for themselves if they are really ready to own a dog, and to help them understand the degree of commitment that will be required.I loved that the book was short enough to be read relatively quickly, but that it then included lots of links where more information could be found.

    this is a waste of money. full of platitudes and nothing basic common sense wouldn't tell you.

    Great information simply stated. Very nice book for parent and child to read together with details on obtaining and caring for your first dog, includes instructions as to grooming, potty training, vaccinating, and spending quality time with your pet. I especially like the section that explains teaching a dog to follow simple commands.

    A lovely book for children about choosing and owning a pet dog. It's full of practical and sensible information written with clarity. The section on training is especially useful - and I loved the inclusion of the 'loving your dog' section.
