How to Train your Hooman: A Field Guide is the third book written by Finnegan Count Smooshie Tushie. It has been transcribed by Gwen Romack and illustrated by Julie Goldman. I reviewed his first book, The Finn Chronicles, Year One last year. Finn is a mix of Hungarian Vizsla, Beagle, and Pittie and full of personality.
Instead of journaling his daily adventures, this book takes a different approach. He tells his fellow canines:
This book is for the dogs. This book is a down and dirty, real-world study of the rescue creatures we tirelessly manage, save and train every day.
Finn has many valuable lessons on how to train hoomans. He uses his wealth of knowledge gained as a top graduate from the K9 Rescue Academy in addition to his hands-on field training of his two challenging and sometimes pawful hoomans, Mommy (“The Squishy One” or “The Devil Woman”) and his best friend, Daddy (The Hairy One).
The book is full of laugh out loud instructions for dogs. Finn uses his popular hashtags to make things even funnier. #WhosTheAlpha #You’reTheAlpha #SayItWithMe. The illustrations and graphics will bring a smile to your face as Finn encourages other dogs to become their best selves. With the way our world has been lately, we can all use a good chuckle!
Upon completion of this field guide, fellow dogs will be able to train their hoomans to properly serve them, as well as maximize treats and minimize “baffs” (baths). There is a certificate of completion at the end of the book. Readers are also given a code to access a Field Guide Companion on Finn’s website.
How To Train Your Hooman: A Field Guide is a great gift for any dog lover. It will be published on February 1, 2021. It is available to pre-order on Amazon. (My website is ad-free and I do not make any money by sharing links).
Thanks to The Squishy One a/k/a Devil Woman for my advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. 5 paws up!
