Dogs And Children

Dogs And ChildrenDogs And Children

Children and dogs in the same household equals many moments of joy for the whole family, dogs included. There are a few considerations that parents should bear in mind and a few rules that children and dogs must learn. These rules are simple and easy to learn.

This book contains sound advice for parents and dog owners.

This little book was published in Danish by Borgen Publishers in 1986 as one in a series of five booklets that dealt with the most common questions asked by dog owners and the problems they ran into. It was never reprinted after the first edition of 25,000 copies sold out. It became since then a bit of a collector’s item.

“Dogs and Children” was published in Danish, Norwegian and Italian, and never translated into English until now. I have often been asked to write about dogs and children and I have done so occasionally in short articles and blogs, but the advice has never been published as a book, except for this booklet. The other day, whilst dusting off my books, I came across the five booklets and thought it would be a good idea to translate the original “Hund og Barn” into English. I have kept the original photos and layout and it is now available free of charge as a flip-page E-book.

The intention of this little book was to provide dog owners with sound advice that would help them prevent accidents from happening and, as such, I believe that it can still perform the same role today as it did 26 years ago.

  4. This is wonderfully written and illustrated. I love the fact that it gets directly to the point, making it a great reference to offer young parents…or anyone who owns a dog that might interact with children. Thank you so much for making this available to the public. I’ll be offering this link to those who adopt dogs from the rescue I volunteer with. I am grateful that I learned almost everything in this book from my animal loving parents and grandparents. Sadly, this information is not being taught in the home as much as it once was…so this translated book in electronic form is coming at a good time.
    I’ve been enjoying your entire blog…please keep adding insightful posts like this regarding animal behavior and the human relationships to them.

  9. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
