How to Behave at a Dog Show Children's Book

To each of us, our dogs are perfect in their own special ways. I know my dog isn't perfect and she has her flaws, but I still love her all the same. Shiner probably won't be winning any dog shows anytime soon. I'm sure the same can be said for many of our readers here.


With the National Dog Show coming up next weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to share a children's book by Madelyn Rosenberg titled How to Behave at a Dog Show. The book is illustrated by Heather Ross.

As an adult, I think it can be easy to expect a lot from our pet dogs. It can be frustrating when things don't go according to plan, but dogs will be dogs. After reading How to Behave at a Dog Show, I tried to imagine how children see their pet dogs. In their eyes, their dogs must be the best in the world.


How to Behave at a Dog Show is a wonderful book for young children that I believe teaches the importance of valuing the good traits in someone and not lingering on what might be considered a "poor" trait by others. With whimsical illustrations to go along with the words of the book, adults are sure to chuckle while reading this to their children.

Sister and brother, Julia and Charlies, decide to enter their little dog, Rexie, in a dog show. Does he have what it takes to win? Maybe not... but, that doesn't stop these two from cherishing all the good things Rexie can do like digging, running, and being a good friend. He may not be "perfect" but they love him for who he is.


I have been reading How to Behave at a Dog Show to my 3 year old daughter and she finds it amusing. Our dog, Shiner, also liked the book and says that she gives it 4 paws up!

How to Behave at a Dog Show is available for purchase on Amazon and would make a wonderful Holiday gift for a special child in your life. You can follow author Madelyn Rosenberg on Twitter and visit her website and blog HERE.

Here is the official trailer to the book. (You have to watch - it's too cute!)

  1. They should also do a book about how to behave at a cat show! I say, having just gone to a cat show to compete! (And I did well this one too!) Mostly the children are well behaved, but I'd like to see them get even more out of the experience so that they are lifetime cat lovers.

    You know, my human is a publisher... and if they DON'T have a cat show book planned, my human may just do one herself.

    1. I heard about your cat show from Savannah - concats! I have not been to a dog show OR cat show before. They both sound like fun though. I'm sure your human could write a pretty neat book about a cat show!

  5. I wish there was one of these for adults! It would say things like: pick up your poop, don't crowd the gate, be a good sport, judges are people too, be nice to newbies . . .lOl

  7. That is so cool - something I would have absolutely loved to read when I was younger. I used to get so excited each year when the dog show came to the Detroit fairgrounds, I loved every part of them - especially the flyball games they had set up outside.

    1. I've never been to a dog show before. I was always obsessed with dog breeds and learning about their traits and what they looked like when I was a little girl though.

  8. What a clever way to get important information to children. On another note - your daughter is growing up so fast and I can't believe how much she looks like you!
