Are you thinking about taking on the huge responsibility of owning a dog?

This book is a comprehensive guide for children aged 8+ to caring for a new puppy or a dog - including animals taken from a rescue centre such as Battersea Cats & Dogs Home. It covers all aspects such as choosing the right pet for you, making it feel at home, daily care, what to feed him/her and how best to communicate and train your dog.

The book is endorsed by Battersea Dogs and Cats Home - the most famous animal refuge charity in the country - and illustrated with images from Battersea's photo library and by the quirky cartoons of Jason Chapman, who has been the illustrator for the Home for a number of years.

Author description

Ben Hubbard began his writing career at a what's-on newspaper in the 1990s, interviewing bands, actors and artists in his native Wellington, New Zealand. He later joined the fast-paced world of daily newspaper journalism before packing up shop and moving to England. Here, Ben tied a number of new strings to his bow: magazine editor, book editor, and finally, author. Today, Ben writes a mix of non-fiction for all ages - preschoolers through to adults. He has penned titles on an eclectic subject range: from space exploration, samurai warriors and medieval castles; to pop music, pets, tornadoes and rugby skills.
