Pet Science Dog School

Let’s face it: Everyone wants a smart kid and a well-behaved dog. With this gift, you might just wind up with both! Pet Science Dog School gives kids tools and instructions for teaching dogs easy obedience commands and problem solving skills. An informative and easy-to-read booklet shows kids how to make their own dog toys, bake their own treats and set up their own doggie intelligence tests. The kit includes a clicker and a whistle that help kids teach even old dogs new tricks. (International Playthings, $19.99)
