Synopsis

Caring for Dogs and Puppies by Ben Hubbard, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home

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 him feel at home, daily care, what to feed him and how best to communicate and train your dog. The book is illustrated with images from Battersea's photo library and by the quirky cartoons of Jason Chapman who has been illustrator for the Home for a number of years.

About the Author

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.
