About the Book

Trudel the Schnoodle has Obsessive Compulsive Dog Disorder. She counts to ten before she can eat and buries her bone over and over again until she gets it just right.

Trudel’s entire day has become occupied with thoughts and habits that make her feel tired and anxious all the time.

In this children’s book with an important message, a Schnoodle with Obsessive Compulsive Dog Disorder finds comfort in knowing she is not alone after she receives help from a kindly expert.
