Whether you’re starting classes with a puppy, need help with your ‘wild child’, have behavioral issues with your dog, or just want to have some fun and keep your dog’s skills sharp, there is a class for you. From Kindergarten to College we’ve got classes to help foster that bond between you and your dog.
It’s now a cliché to say how impossible it is to keep up with this hyperactive political news-cycle, and all the questions it throws up. In Good Dog, a finely-observed new play by Arinzé Kene, it seems that one answer to the overriding problem of how the country got here in the first place is found by looking back at the noughties.
Bullied at school, neglected at home, and conscious of the violence in his corner of multicultural inner-London, the boy is plagued by the moral quandary of whether feeling good is a simple question of doing good. The ‘good dog’ is supposed to always get its rewards – so why does this good boy never get a shiny new bike from his mum, but instead a beating-up in the playground?

Good Dog does more than good! This organization is run by a genuine family who helped their son and now helps countless other families. ItвЂ™s been incredible to witness the difference a dog can make in a family. Follow their Instagram & Facebook pages and you will start to see the stories that flood in of all the Good in Good Dog!
What an adorable book!! Each of author Cori Doerrfeld’s sentences are literally only two words long…yet she manages to effectively portray a story about a stray dog who chases a little girl and her mom around town. When the dog notices that she left her teddy bear behind at the park, he valiantly picks it up and brings it to her home. What a sweet doggie! Good Dog is a short and simple story with a lot of heart.
Children will enjoy reading through it again and again to see what new things they can spot on each page. I loved the illustrations and I loved that the featured family is multi-cultural. This would make a great addition to a children’s read-aloud session with therapy or shelter dogs present. Pair it with the songs, “B-I-N-G-O” and “Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?” and another dog-related picture book like Emma Dodd’s Dog’s Colorful Day and you’ll be well on your way to creating a fun dog-themed storytime.
Also can we talk about how the author references his other book The Honest Truth in this book? I was high key surprised by what it implied in this book. . more
