"Show Dog" by Josh Dean

Show Dog by Josh Dean tells the true story of Jack, an Australian Shepard dog, that Josh follows for a year from show to show.  This is a double WOW book for me because now I know the ins and outs of a dog show.  It's an awesome read!  The writing is very good and Jack's handlers and the other dogs in the book are good too! 

If you love dogs, declaring this a "must read" is a no-brainer.  I hated to see it end, LOVED IT!

  1. What a great book! I've only been to one dog show, and currently don't even own a dog, but once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. Jack is a charmer, and I loved following him and his handling team through a year of shows. Making it an even more interesting read, the book is filled with fascinating back stories and funny details about everything from grooming to dog psychology. I'll be watching Westminster with a newfound appreciation for the incredible amount of work and dedication that goes into the making of a show dog.

  2. Hey guys - my Google news alert brought me here, and I'm glad it did. Thanks for saying such nice things about my book. I'm so glad you like it. I know this is shameless, but the reality of publishing today requires that we authors be a little shameless, so I'm wondering if there's any way you would be willing to share your review on Amazon and/or A volume of good, honest reviews from people who just happened upon the book, believe it or not, really matters. Anyway, just a thought. Thanks again for your support. - Josh Dean, author, SHOW DOG (;

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While Jack was starting his special career at Wildwood my bitch was starting her road to her championship at the same show. Josh did a great job researching the dog show world and painting a true picture of todays dog shows. A must read.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
