Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head, and then draw out an egg shape for the body. Don't forget to draw the facial guidelines for the face too.

Step 2.

Now you can start drawing out the actual shape of the dogs head, and don't forget the ears, and nose. Also, fluff up the cheeks.

Step 3.

Now you will use the facial guidelines to draw in the eyes, and you can do this by drawing two oval shapes and then coloring in those eyes too. When that is done you can then draw in the mouth, and bone in the mouth. Or you can draw a ball or even a    

Step 4.

The next thing you will do is draw out the chest, and front legs like you see here and then sketch in some chest hair.

Step 5.

Now it's time to draw out the back end of the dog, and then draw the back legs.

Step 6.

Now you can draw the tail and then begin erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 7.

Now that you are all done, this is how your new doggie looks. I hope you had fun with this lesson on how to draw a dog for kids.
