"Walking your dog is easy...but only if your dog wants to walk. This bouncy day-in-the-life adventure shows what happens when you pair a spunky little girl with a dog who's as stubborn as he is furry. Debut author-illustrator team Elizabeth Stevens Omlor and Neesha Hudson use spare text and watercolor and colored pencil illustration to show kids that working as a team requires cooperation, patience, and heart." - Published June 5, 2018 by G.P. Putnam's Sons

"Pet care seems like it’s all fun and games—and a cinch to boot: “Greet your dog. Groom your dog. Feed your dog,” instructs the narrator. But the slyly funny, watercolor-and-pencil pictures tell a different story..." - Publishers Weekly

"With just three words in each spread and only the verb varying (“Train your dog. / Treat your dog”), the watercolor-and–colored-pencil art provides delightful details, sometimes using animation strategies to advance the action...The minimal text works well with the maximal visual storytelling." - Kirkus

"The illustrations are humorous and detailed, adding additional information to the story and well as capturing the ever-changing emotions of the little girl as she tries to control her dog. Although the story shows that having a pet is a lot of work and can be frustrating, it also shows the rewards of dog ownership. ­VERDICT A solid addition for most picture book collections. Perfect for early readers who are dog lovers." -School Library Journal Review
