The My First Pet series was designed to help children understand the responsibilities and expectations of having a pet. These cute kid's books briefly go over the duties and expectations involved with each pet to allow children to feel prepared for his or her new pet.

My First Puppy covers all the basics from feeding to leash training in a simple and direct way for young children to understand.

is an avid pet lover. She received her Elementary Education degree from the University of Idaho. Mandy and her pets call Boise, Idaho home. This series was inspired by my little chocolate princess Hazel. When she was a puppy I wanted to be a good pet parent and train her right. I bought a book on expectations and training your Labrador. One night I fell asleep reading this book and laid it next to me in the bed. When I awoke my adorable new puppy was eating the training your lab book.
