The Trouble with Dogs

by Bob Graham

Brought home from the rescue centre, Dave is small and sparky and gets all excited. To Kate he’s everything a pup should be. The trouble is, he sometimes gets too excited. He jumps uninvited onto guests’ laps, runs down the middle of flowerbeds and chews holes in the tights of Kate’s schoolfriends. “We need help!” Mum decides. But will the man from Pup Breakers really have the answers?

This is a sequel to ‘Let’s Get a Pup’, which was recognised internationally in the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award 2002 and was shortlisted for the 2001 Kate Greenaway Medal, the 2002 Sheffield Children’s Book Award and the 2002 Norfolk Children’s Book Award.
