A Dog's Best Friend
By

Rating
This work is intended for ages 6 to 12 years. Owning a pet can teach a child responsibility, patience, confidence, and the satisfaction of a job well done - and best of all, it's fun! Over 60 inventive activities and crafts such as Can Do Canine Show and Dog Day Story teach kids about taking care of their pooch pal while promoting a long-lasting relationship. Games such as musical chairs, burying bones together, and throwing a frisbee and flyball; fun things to make such as a rag rug, a pooch pillow, and a puppy bed; and yummy treats to cook such as crunchy dog biscuits and a dog food cake get kids involved with taking care of their dog's needs while teaching healthy care-giving techniques and fostering a deep friendship. In addition, "A Dog's Best Friend" includes information about dog obedience training; a reading list of children's animal books; listings of Web sites, pet-care resources, and animal organisations and events; and amusing trivia for dog lovers.
