Cora Bellamy is a woman who thrives on organization. She’s successfully run her own dog training business for years, perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life. She’s given everything to her business, and her lack of social life (or slobber-free clothes) has been completely worth it.

But all that changes when she meets Charlie Gill, the hottest client she’s ever had. The only problem? Charlie’s taken. Luckily, Cora has a new friend—the sweet, lovably geeky Eli Crawford. More loyal than a retriever, he’s always there to help Cora with her problems, including her love life. That’s why she’s shocked to realize that even as things start heating up with Charlie, there might just be a more-than-friends spark between her and Eli, too.

As Cora’s life gets more tangled up than a dogwalker’s leashes—and as she prepares to audition for a dog-training TV show that may irrevocably change her entire life—she has to figure things out before it all goes straight to the dogs.


Victoria Schade is an award-winning author, speaker and dog trainer known for her upbeat approach to living and working with dogs. Her books, "Bonding With Your Dog; A Trainer's Secrets for Building a Better Relationship" and "Secrets of a Dog Trainer: Positive Problem Solving for a Well-Behaved Dog" are geared to helping people and pets lead harmonious lives together. Victoria has worked with Animal Planet for over twelve years as the lead animal trainer on the channel's popular Puppy Bowl special, and appeared as a co-host on the program "Faithful Friends" during its two-season run. She frequently serves as a resource for the media, including the CBS Early Show, The Smithsonian Channel, WeTV and Fox. Victoria has contributed to The Washington Post, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple Magazine, Reader's Digest, The Bark and many dog-specific publications. She currently serves as a pet expert for PetCoach and PetMD, writing training and behavior content and appearing in educational videos.
