Publisher's Summary

Ben Carter, pet care specialist, is hired to walk a Shiba Inu named Toby. Unbeknownst to Ben, Toby is no ordinary dog but an inugami - an immortal demon born in feudal Japan and bred for only one purpose...murder.

A mysterious cult seeks to capture the inugami and harness its power for evil. With the help of an elderly luchador and a cop with a heart of gold, Ben must protect Toby and uncover the secret of the Tengu before the cultists can unleash the beast and the bloodlust claims the inugami once more.

    "laugh out loud"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book it was entertaining and fun with horror. Ben is a dog walker who is hired to walk and care for Toby, a Shiba Inu who is an ancient demon. It also has funny characters of Hipster Girl (Emily) Dragon Mask (a Mexican wrestler), Sarah (a cop) and many dogs (with funny dog notes): then all these demons (unreal descriptions). Recommend to anyone one who loves dogs and bizarre horror with humor. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. Thank you.

    "Quick, fun and refreshing"

    Headline says it all. I mostly listen to series or books that are usually 20 or more hours so this was a nice change to listen to.

    Story
    "Unlikely heroes and amazing creatures"

    Get ready for One hell of a fun romp through a land of nightmares. Our main hero is as in many cases an unlikely one. A dog walker and not the greatest of ones either. A host of Japanese demons that can only be seen by those initiated in the arts or who have bonded with a demon dog. As always there are allies and enemies. the allies are a mixed bunch whose comedic value is wonderful. The whole story has a dark and twisted side to it always just barely overshadowed by the outlandish behavior and comedic value of the players involved. Great listen very well narrated and I can't wait for more by both author and narrator. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Quick, light, entertaining and very well done"

    Ben is a pet health care and wellness specialist for Windy City Waggers. Ok. He is a dog walker. Not the most glamourous of jobs, but he dreams of being a famous screenwriter one day. Enemy Mine 2 is his ticket to fame and fortune. He can sell that one to the studios for sure. First, he must unlock the secrets behind the demon that evidently lives inside Toby the dog and fight off the crazed cultists bent on capturing him and harnessing Toby’s power for world domination. Not a problem. Well…maybe a little.

    I usually gravitate to the darker side of fiction, but when I saw the audiobook was up for grabs it occurred to me that something a little lighter might just be what the doctor ordered. I was not disappointed. This one was exactly what I was hoping it was going to be. It was quick, light and entertaining and there was no shortage of laughs or silly antics either.

    Written well, with a nicely developed cast of whacky characters and a really well produced and executed audio. Very nice all around. 3.5 Stars and recommended for an easy, entertaining listen.

    Flaming chickens, a Samurai warrior luchador, eye-butts, turtle demons and Stoney and Fergie the Greyhound poop machines. It’s all there.

    *I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

    "Toby and Ben"

    the narrator did an excellent job bringing this story to life!
    as did the writer!

    there is good character development in this book. I loved all characters! Even the hippy chick.
    This wasn't so much a horror and just an exultant book about a dog walker, and demons.
    this book would be great for anyone who loves a good fast paced story, dogs, great characters, with demons and the supernatural.

    "Fun book, excellent narrator"

    This book is crazy and I loved it. If you're a dog person like I am, this story will earn extra brownie points. I'm hard to please when it comes to comedy, but I had several laugh out loud moments. The ending was satisfying but I was pleasantly surprised by the promise of a sequel. The narrator was flawless, I hope he continues with this series.

    This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Fun and light listen"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It was fun and entertaining


    Which character – as performed by Travis Baldree – was your favorite?

    My fav character was, of course, eye butt. Anything more would be a spoiler.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I drive 1-2 hours a day and listen to it in the car


    Any additional comments?

    It was an engaging story, different from anything I have ever heard or read. It was light and fun. It made me laugh a few times.

    Story
    "Where's the movie?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, yes I would and I have! I asked the author for a copy I could listen and review, just because I am particularly fond of shiba inus, and then - BAM! - I couldn't stop listening! It starts off slow but then picks up the pace, and then it keeps getting better and better. It felt more like a movie to me, I could picture things in my mind perfectly even though the author didn't spend pages upon pages describing little details, and that worked out great, too!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dog Walker?

    There were many: I loved all dogs and how different they were, I loved how Blonde Hipster Girl (BHG) always made me laugh, I loved how different yokai behaved. However, the moments that were most memorable to me were those related to Dragon Mask. He was one of the most interesting characters in the book.


    What about Travis Baldree’s performance did you like?

    Travis Beldree's performance was great! He did the voice acting really well, his characters were all distinct and had a special something, and he even managed to make female voices not annoying! His narration was nothing close to boring, as he made action scenes very different from dramatic ones or even descriptive ones. 10/10 would listen again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    While all this book is very unexpected, I wasn't expecting to feel so emotional during the scene we see Dragon Mask as an old, tired man. Travis did a wonderful job narrating what Jack wrote.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to see this as a movie, and I'm pretty sure it has every chance of being as - or even maybe more - entertaining as the book. If we're talking superheroes, this book would be Guardians of the Galaxy or maybe The Avengers instead of Nolan's Dark Knight. I get that it might not be everyone's cup of tea. Anxiously awaiting Dog Walker II!
