The Book

What the Dogs Taught me About Being a Parent

Written in 2013. This book is so much more than a dog training book. It is much more than a guide to parenting. The lessons that I have learnt are the universal laws of life that are true to so many areas of life. If you have children or dogs, both or neither then I think you will get a lot of out the book :)

“The Common sense approach that Dan takes in this book will resonate with many families. It looks at how to balance strength with flexibility and how to remain calm in the storm”

“You have inspired me for a lifetime”
An insprirational testimonial from Francesca
Bennett a lady with no children or dogs!

“Whilst I was at Christchurch airport, I decided to venture in to the bookshop to find a promising read for the journey home. This is when I chanced across your book. And let me tell you, your book screamed out to me “pick me up!”. I loved the cover and at first sight knew it would be just my book.

You must be thinking, what does a 17 year old girl need to know about parenting or having a dog? But I am sure you know as well as I that your book can be applied to all areas of ones life.

I must have read your book within the first 13 hours of my plane journey to Singapore. I absolutely loved it. Your book has allowed me to find the courage and determination within myself to pursue my dream. After all, “pursue of excellence is a worthy cause”.

You have inspired me for a lifetime.
I am never, never, never going to give in until I make it.

And for this, I want to thank you Doggy Dan and bless your soul.
