Take a rambunctious boy, an equally high-spirited Labrador puppy, and parents who want to channel these restless energies in positive directions. Add to this combination of yips and yells and puppy-dog tales several real lessons that kids and adults can use to train their own retriever puppies – and the result is a delightful children's storybook that can be read aloud and shared with the entire family.
In Raising Riley, Tyler is an eight-year-old boy who is having trouble reining in his own exuberant behavior. When his parents buy a yellow Lab puppy, the boy quickly discovers that Riley, too, is a creature of almost unbridled enthusiasm. By participating in the hands-on training of Riley, Tyler learns important lessons about friendship, discipline, and responsibility – lessons he applies in the nick of time to help save his young dog from impending disaster.
Raising Riley will be read enthusiastically by all kids and adults who own a dog or anticipate getting one. And children who have read Raising Riley will come away with not only a good story, but the basis for training their own pet.
