We are very pleased to announce that several of the books we either publish or carry on our website selection won Maxwell Awards and other special awards at the Dog Writers Association of America's recent annual writing contest.
The Awards are given out in a wide variety of categories and the judges look at both writing quality and content. As our editor here at Dogwise Publishing says, "Writing a book (or essay or article) is a really, really hard thing to do" and thus we believe giving the winners a shout-out is well deserved:
Best reference book: He's Only Playing! Meeting, Greeting and Play Between Dogs by Sarah Whitehead.
Single, Related of All Breed book: Empowerment Training for Your Power Dog by Dawn Antoniak-Mitchell.
Heath/General Care book: The Allergic Pet by Deva Kalsha.
Best Video (USB): Fit for Life by Chris Zink and Gayle Watkins.
Canine Enrichment Award: The Big Book of Tricks for the Best Dog Ever by Larry Kay and Chris Perondi.
Best Blog: Fidose of Reality by Carol Bryant. If you are interested in writing a pet related blog, check out Carol's new book Pet Blogging for Love and Money.
