After seeing numerous media reports of children being attacked by dogs, author Nickola Engel decided to write her first illustrated book, “What’s My Dog Saying?: Keeping Children and Dogs Safe” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

The storybook is about friends Sam and Josh. Sam teaches Josh how to behave around dogs to combat Josh’s fears. Some tips are to be gentle; never disturb dogs when they’re eating or sleeping; never to shout or hit at a dog; watch for signs of distress, as well as other valuable lessons.

Engel paid close attention to how children interact with dogs in her day-to-day life as a dog trainer and canine behaviorist. That’s when she started noticing patterns and gathering tips to teach children to be safe, which keeps dogs safe, too.

“It teaches children how to behave around dogs and what to look for in a dog’s body language in order to keep them safe around each other,” Engel says. “It is my firm belief that children should be taught how to behave around dogs in order to have a happy, safe relationship together.”
