Are you barking mad about dogs?


Just follow our lead: every man and their dog — especially their dog — should read this book...


Simon Whaley

At the age of 14, Simon Whaley wrote to the playwright and author Alan Bleasdale to ask his advice about becoming a writer. “Don’t'” replied Bleasdale. “Become a brain surgeon instead. It’s easier.”

Fortified by these encouraging words, Simon went to work for Barclays Bank for eight years, followed by a stint in local government. None of these career paths led to an obvious future as a writer, or even as the bestselling author of a number of books on dogs, but he got there eventually. His literary pedigree includes One Hundred Muddy Paws For Thought, and One Hundred Ways For A Dog To Train Its Human.

He has learned everything he knows about dogs from Bella, the family dog, over a period of nearly 17 years. She also taught him everything else he knows.


"An amazing amount of solid fact disguised as frivolous observation."
