Abbreviations used:
st(s) = stitch(es)
ch = chain stitch
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet (UK: double crochet)
hdc = half double crochet (UK: half treble crochet)

The dog should be crocheted tightly enough that no stuffing is visible through the stitches. Therefore, use the crochet hook size that best suits your crochet tension.
