Meet our very clever dog. He always knows just what we're saying to him. He knows, but does he always obey?

A funny story about a clever (but not always obedient) dog, from a father-daughter team of dog lovers.

From playing in the park to dinnertime, bath time and bedtime - this very smart dog knows what's going on!

If you loved THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO A DOG'S BEST FRIEND, HARRY THE DIRTY DOG or HAIRY MACLARY then you will adore OUR DOG KNOWS WORDS.

Reading, Writing and Riesling

Warmly recommended. Dogs, Families, Dog training,
Responsibility. With charming illustrations showing a family and their
dog, this book does far more than point out the words a dog can
understand. It is a guide to how to treat a dog, how to teach it to be
part of the family, understanding words and treats, fitting in with the
lifestyle of the family which owns it and the family's responsibilities
in having a dog. The pages show the family training their dog with
treats, to sit and stay, roll over and fetch. The illustrations show a
happy family and contented dog, lying on the bed together. All children will melt at the
illustrations and the reader too while neither the reader or listener will be able to hold back
laughter at the antics shown by both the dog and its family. The favourite words are left to
last. These are the words that families have to spell out as the dog gets very excited
hearing them. Words like W.A.L.K. and C.A.R. are just as easily understood by the pooch,
and the last few pages are left to the last words of the day: bed.
Children will love looking at the antics of the dog in the house, and recognise some of the
responsibilities of the family towards their animal in training it and treating it well, feeding,
washing, taking it for walks, introducing it to other dogs and so on. A delightful book to
begin talking about pets and responsibilities.

The idea for the book came after a leisurely walk around New Town during which Peter and Lucy were approached by a woman.

Lucy Gouldthorpe, the illustrator of this book, has given us such an endearing doggie: big, brown, shaggy-haired, with a face that epitomises the love of life... If you're from a doggie family, buy a copy of this book for the littlies and then you can enjoy a smile on every page.
