What to Know Before You Get Your Dog by Margrit Strohmaier is a stunning little book for children (and some adults) that teaches us how to care for dogs in order to keep them healthy and happy. Through rhymes and beautiful pictures, the book highlights everything a dog needs such as food, treats, exercise, grooming, and lots of love. Dogs make good companions for children and keep them safe so it is important that the owner takes responsibility and knows what they are really getting themselves into. There is a cost involved in owning a dog. Besides food and vet bills, the dog will need a bed, collar, leash, and regular baths. Readers can download a useful free dog care chart and a dog care contract from the author's website.

This charming little book is a must for all children and adults who are thinking of owning a dog, or any pet for that matter. It reminds us that dogs need taking care of every day, must be taken for walks, and given attention. Then there is the all-important “who will pick up the poop” part. Dogs also require gentle discipline and rewards for good behavior. The dog care chart provided by Margrit Strohmaier is a fantastic gift that helps as a reminder of what needs to be done every day. In addition, the dog care contract gives the owner a sense of accountability. An absolute delight to read, What to Know Before You Get Your Dog should be available at every vet and pet shop. Highly recommended for children and adults.
