Jack & Billy Puppy Tales


Puppy tales follows two puppies, Jack and Billy, during that all-important first year of their lives. Two different approaches to training and socialising, and consequently two different outcomes. A delightful story with an important message for children of all ages (and a happy ending).




A great and non-confrontational way to get everyone (not just kids!) to work out what the best choices are for puppies.’


‘This will definitely educate both children and adults about the correct way to bring up a puppy. It belongs in the home of all dog lovers and anyone considering acquiring a puppy.’

Karen Tonge, Dog Training Instructor & Child-Dog Bite Prevention Educator

‘I started to smile after only four pages in when I realized the concept, which is brilliant. I couldn’t put it down and at the end, I could barely read for tears of happiness. This is a wonderful book.’

Dr Ian Dunbar

‘Jack & Billy: Puppy Tales shows in a non-judgmental and accurate manner the unintended consequences, both positive and negative, of differing approaches and styles to raising puppies, and the success stories and re-homing scenarios that result from each scenario.’

Niki Tudge, MBA, PCBC-A, CDBC, CDT
