A lead for dog-own­ers

The Jewish Chronicle - - EDUCATION -

BON­NIE THE Lucky Col­lie by Vicky Al­had­eff is a new ed­u­ca­tional book for dog own­ers. Bon­nie goes from home to home be­fore set­tling with a fam­ily who un­der­stand her and have the pa­tience to train her sen­si­tively. She is given the chance to herd rub­ber balls and help bring the hens in­side at night; she is taken on the right sort of walks for her needs, stroked in a non-threat­en­ing way — and, charm­ingly, Bon­nie also trains her fam­ily to in­ter­act with her.

Al­had­eff in­cor­po­rates dog-train­ing tips into this clev­erly dog-cen­tric pic­ture book, ap­peal­ingly il­lus­trated by Anja Kolenko. House­holds think­ing of adopt­ing a res­cue dog will find it re­ally use­ful and chil­dren who do not have their own pet will learn how to be­have to­wards other peo­ple’s dogs.
