Toby and Friends – Children’s Book About The Joy Of Pets As Therapy

 

Toby and Friends Children’s Book

Once Upon A Time stories about a dog called TOBY written and illustrated by Margaret Piper.

This is an illustrated book for children about the training of a dog for Pet Therapy and about his visits to nursing homes and a Children’s hospital. 

These are true stories which will be enjoyed when read to children. They will give adults a chuckle too and demonstrate the positive effects of Pet Therapy for young and old.

Margaret writes, “I have written these stories to express my appreciation of the great joy I have experienced in visiting young and old with Toby.  There have been many magical moments of sharing with others including children with disabilities – just love them all!  Training for Pet Therapy has been very rewarding and I think Toby has appreciated the discipline too especially all the training treats!”

Margaret very kindly donated the books to VPAT to aid fund raising for the program. The book is $15 + $5 for postage and handling. To order call 02 9418 4343 or email: velma@velmaspetsastherapy.com.au

E-booklet – Toilet Training  – Using Methods Your Dog Wants You To Use!

As above, this booklet offers easy to understand advice on how to toilet train your dog, in the quickest possible time, using kind and loving methods. The old “rub her nose in it and shout at her” method is not only old fashioned but simply doesn’t work in fact, often makes matters worse with Fido toileting behind furniture or in rooms where there are no people.

Toilet training is my specialty as I used to board dogs that were not always house trained. I often toilet train dogs of all ages and breeds within 3 days. This booklet will show you how to achieve this.

This is an e-book and the cost is only $11.00 and sent to you instantly by email. For details email: petcourses@yahoo.com or phone 0432 578 210
