The ABCs of the Little Dog Owner

Together with talented students, canine behavior experts, and veterinarians, we have identified 20 issues dog owners face and turned them into sketches that little ones can color in, all accompanied by explanatory texts to help them learn.

The ABCs of the Little Dog Owner

We wanted to create a dynamic, attractive, and fun book that helps them understand the world of dogs, explaining the basic needs of pets; from rules for safety and caring, to general tips on maintaining the health of our furry friends.

At the beginning of the 2022- 2023 school year, this book was distributed to schools. The feedback was amazing and teachers and educational staff really welcomed the initiative and appreciated the effort.
Therefore, we have set the goal of distributing at least 5000 books in the rural areas of Romania. To help us achieve this, we are constantly looking for sponsors who will be mentioned in a dedicated section of the book.
