JJ THE AMERICAN STREET DOG IS BACK!
JJ GOES TO PUPPY CLASS
Second Book in Dynamic Children’s Series About Animal Rescue: Teaches Kindness, Patience and the Power of Building a Bond through Positive Training.
LOS ANGELES – JJ Goes To Puppy Class is the second book in a series by Diane Rose-Solomon. JJ Goes To Puppy Class is a beautifully illustrated story that helps pet loving families teach their children about patience, consistency, kindness, responsibility and unconditional love- just some of the important values parents and educators endeavor to impart in school age children.
In the first book, JJ The American Street Dog, we enjoyed watching six-year-old Maya and her family, learn about animal rescue as a result of adopting a dog found on the street. In JJ Goes to Puppy Class Maya and her family enroll JJ in positive obedience training so he can learn what is expected of him inside and outside of the home. The training methods described in the book encourage Maya to be gentle and comforting towards JJ in his new environment. A perfect way to set an example for a five to nine-year-old reader. JJ exhibits all the typical puppy behavior: accidents in the house, pulling on the leash, unwanted chewing, etc. and trainer Lyssa teaches Maya and her family how to work with JJ on each behavior in a humane and patient manner.
“This book gets 2 paws up from me! What a fun way to teach kids about responsible pet ownership. The issues depicted in the book are real life scenarios one encounters with a new dog, and the training advice is sound. I also love the focus on the value of adoption coming from JJ’s story as a rescued street dog.” Justin Silver, Owner, The Language of Dogs; Host, Dogs In The City TV Show.
“Writing for children in a way that effectively educates as well as entertains is not easy. JJ Goes to Puppy Class is a stellar success in this endeavor. Each Year in the US, millions of pet animals lose their lives in animal shelters because they are unwanted, and a leading reason is ‘improper’ behavior. In a fun and caring way, JJ Goes to Puppy Class shows children the importance of helping puppies get started on the right foot. This educational and entertaining book promotes a compassionate bond between children and their pets.” Franklin D. McMillan, DVM, Director of Well-Being Studies, Best Friends Animal Society.
“JJ Goes to Puppy Class reminds us dog training can be fun for the whole family. I highly recommend this book as it shows us how to begin the life long bond with our new best friend!” Lynn Medlin, Owner, Dog Town Dog Training; Founding Trainer, K9 Connection.
This is the second book by Ms. Rose-Solomon, a Certified Humane Education Specialist. The topics of the next three books in the JJ series are: Introducing a baby to a home that has a dog: Service and therapy dogs: Prejudice against certain breeds.
