A comic canine conundrum from Australia's leading picture book maker.

Brought home from the rescue centre, Dave is small and sparky and gets all excited. To Kate he's everything a pup should be. The trouble is, he sometimes gets too excited. He jumps uninvited onto guests' laps, runs down the middle of flowerbeds and chews holes in the tights of Kate's schoolfriends. "We need help!" Mum decides. But will the man from Pup Breakers really have the answers?
