Rex D. Dog

Rex D Dog is one of our favourite friends here at DHA, he is a playful pup who has moved house with his family many times before. He just loves exploring new places and making new friends. Most of all Rex likes to share his stories with Defence kids through his story books.

Since the launch of his first book Let's Get Moving, thousands of packs have been distributed to Defence families across Australia.

Following this success Rex D Dog began piecing together his next adventure Sticking Together, which launched in May 2014. This great new book includes all your favourite characters (and some new ones too) and comes with an exciting activity book filled with things for you to draw, play and create.

These activity packs are free for Defence children and were produced with the support of our Defence stakeholders including Defence Families of Australia.
