This first book follows Kim, who’s great with dogs. She’s the only person who can get her neighbors’ dog, a sweet but lazy basset hound named Humphrey, to go on his daily walk, and she makes it look so easy that her brother calls her the dog whisperer. So she can’t wait to start her seventh grade volunteer project: working at the Roxbury Park Dog Shelter. But the shelter is running out of money and might have to shut down…unless Kim and her friends Sasha and Taylor can save it!

This second book focuses on Sasha, who has always wanted a pet. There’s only one problem: her mom doesn’t think she’s responsible enough. Sasha knows she can be forgetful sometimes, but after weeks of volunteering at the Roxbury Park Dog Shelter with her friends Kim and Taylor, she’s sure she can convince her mom she’s ready to take care of a pet. But then the newest dog in the girls’ after-school dog care program turns out to be too rambunctious to manage. How can Sasha prove she’s responsible if she can’t get one problem puppy under control?

In this third book, Taylor discovers that not everyone in Roxbury Park is as welcoming as her two best friends, Kim and Sasha. A girl at school won’t stop picking on Taylor for being new. Even worse, the Dog Club is under attack, too! A fancy dog grooming shop across town has set up a competing dog day care and unless the girls figure out how to keep their customers, the Pampered Puppy might put them out business --- for good.

In this fourth book, Kim has to face the fact that while understanding dogs is easy, keeping up in class can be hard. Her parents are talking about sending her to a different school if she doesn’t improve her grades --- which would mean leaving the Dog Club! To get through this crisis, Kim will need a helping hand (or paw) from all her friends.

In this fifth book, Brianna tries to figure out where she fits as the Dog Club’s newest member. She loves the dogs, especially sweet shelter dog Lily, but sometimes she feels like the fourth wheel in Sasha, Kim, and Taylor’s friendship trio. Then the shelter starts a new foster program. Bri knows she’ll feel better if she can bring Lily home --- but convincing her mom to take in an older shelter dog may be even tougher than feeling like a fourth wheel...

In this sixth book, the Dog Club is busier than ever --- and headed right for its first big fight! Sasha doesn’t think it’s fair that she’s stuck answering calls and emails while Kim, Taylor, and Bri don’t have to worry about the business side of the Club. But when she tries to speak up, the other girls don’t get it. Now they’re mad at Sasha...and it feels like the Dog Club is about to fall apart!
