Dogwise Publishing History Dogwise Publishing was established in 2001 as a subsidiary of Direct Book Service Inc. and Dogwise.com to produce and market high quality books on dogs. Dogwise is committed to publishing books that improve upon the information currently available, use humane training methods, cutting edge science and proven solutions to make living with a dog more fun and enjoyable. The audience for our published titles include dog owners, trainers, breeders, dog sports competitors, veterinarians, shelters, and dog-related professionals. Over the years Dog Writers Association of America, DWAA, has selected several of our books for their highest honor, the Maxwell Award and book industry insiders recognize that Dogwise Publishing titles give readers well-written, sound educational information on dogs. Dogwise Publishing books are sold through on-line, brick and mortar retailers including pet supply stores and bookstores, mail order companies and book industry wholesalers. Dogwise Publishing's Mission Statement To bring humane, understandable, and scientifically sound information to people who enrich their lives by working with, playing with, and loving dogs. The book for which we are looking for cover design is titled: Fetch More Dollars. Sales Coaching for Your Dog Training Business This is a business-building, business-development book being marketed to professionals who make some or all of their living training dogs--especially pet/family dogs. While many people have the skills to train dogs, they often don't have the skills needed to sell themselves as experts. This book takes the mystery and even fear out of the selling process for professional dog trainers. The book is playful and humorous yet full of serious sales advice. We want a book cover that conveys both that it is fun and accessible yet valuable and informative. This is NOT a dog training book. It is a book for the trainer to help him/her build their training business and make more money.
What's your vision?

The cover image: Can be either a photo or a graphic. We have a graphic that is the logo of the author's business and we would like a design using this graphic but we also would like to see a designs that utilizes a photo. The photo images can be of your own choice but ideally it would be composed of a dog or dogs looking playful, happy, possibly interacting with a person. Designer should select colors compatible with the image selected. The back cover: We want a large area left blank for editorial and endorsement content which we will insert. There needs to be space for a bar code and Dogwise logo etc. We will want to have the book category and pricing info at the top of the page as on our other books. Spine: Should contain the title, Author Name and Dogwise logo and small dog image as is on our other books
We have a branded book cover design that we have used on close to 100 Dogwise Publishing titles that the designer should refer to but we are looking for a fresh take on our usual format. The selected design will blend well with our other branded titles.
