Next Door’s Dog Has A Job

Written by Gina Dawson.
Illustrated by Vivenne da Silva.

Tom wants his dog Pepper to have a yellow jacket like Bailey, the dog next door.   Kate looks fit and healthy, yet she never goes out without Bailey, not even to work, and Tom doesn’t understand why.   Through watching Bailey and chatting with Dad, Tom learns:

  • Disabilities can be diverse and invisible
  • Assistance Dogs come in many shapes and sizes
  • Assistance Dogs help people in a variety of ways, and
  • There is an appropriate code of behaviour around a working Assistance Dog.

This lovely illustrated book gives the reader a journey of the dog next door and his job, and the amazing bond between dog and handler as Bailey and Kate look after each other.
