    This book is delightful! And the Illustrations are also excellent! A GREAT book for children! Great for parents to read to their children in preparation for a move to show how to adjust and make new friends along the way! It’s always wonderful to experience some one else’s adventure through reading!
    This would also make a great little housewarming present for a new young family to Welcome them to your neighbourhood.

    This is a sweet book to read over and over. At first, the dogs in our house monopolized it, but we've now taught them to share.

    This is a wonderful book with great drawings! All of us kids love it!


  • Delightful, beautifully illustrated children’s book!

    This is a sweet tale about moving to a new country through the eyes of the family dog. Will the dogs there be different? Will they bark a different language? A great opportunity for a child who is moving homes to talk about their concerns, or a child with (or without) a dog to consider things from a beloved pet’s point of view. Lots of layers in this delightful little book that I know kids will enjoy. I loved it!

  • Christina Lammermann

    Beautifully illustrated, especially for anyone who loves dogs, with a clever and interesting story that gives many perfect chances to have children guess at what is going on! A perfect kid mystery, with adventure everywhere, and with a sweet ending, I purchased several to give as holiday gifts!!

  • Nancy O'Neill

    Dogs On The Go is an adorable children's book with a simple, but the happy storyline and cute illustrations. The message could be helpful for a parent addressing challenging emotions a child might feel during a family move, but can also be enjoyed simply as a happy, uplifting and feel-good story. I highly recommend this sweet book!

  • Sally Ryan

    Follow Angus, the Giant Schnauzer, through his apprehension of moving far away from home to the joys of making new friends and finding greener grasses at his new home in a country faraway. A wonderful way to relay how small the world really is when you're no longer a stranger in a strange land. A darling tale any adult and child will love!

  • Edward Holloway

    Great stuff! Loved the idea of seeing things from a dog's point of view. Really cute and whimsy animation. My 5-year-old enjoyed it a lot and the repeating of questions led to a nice surprise. Keep it up!


    Elegant! Great illustrations, meaningful text and an excellent message overall that’s age-appropriate. We bought one as a gift for two kids in transition (moving an hour away) with a dog, perfect timing. We bought another for a family with kids and dogs moving across the country caravan style, again perfect. It’s simple, comforting, fun and helpful.
