    Now this is ESSENTIAL for training a dog

    Jennifer has an amazing knack for interpreting dog's actions and reactions. Her explanations are easy to understand and based on actual research and studies not ego or conjecture. Get this book and understand your dog so much better. Get this book and train a four footed friend!

    This book has changed my view on dog training. I'm only in 8th grade, but I was using some of Cesar Milan's methods on my dog. Nothing serious, but little things like not picking her up on walks if she is barking at other dogs. Now i realize how damaging his method can be and now I have good solutions to solve problems in a healthier way.

    I have always been interested in service dogs and I really liked the insight. I also want to have my own dog rescue and vet clinic so this book was really helpful and I really enjoyed it.

    If you¿re not a dog lover now you surely will be after hearing Jennifer Arnold¿s illuminating story of the unique bond between humans and dogs. She lists many valid reasons why canines are often referred to as ¿man¿s best friend.¿
    Most of us are familiar with seeing eye dogs but there are a myriad of ways in which dogs assist children and adults with disabilities and special needs. We learn of some of these through the stories Arnold tells, and we also become aware of what dogs expect and most assuredly deserve from us.

    As the founder and executive director of Canine Assistants based in Milton, Georgia, Arnold, a non-profit organization that trains service dogs, Arnold is not only highly knowledgeable regarding dog training but she also has a unique understanding of the bonds between man/woman and their dogs.

    She shares her 20 years of experience in working with dogs through the stories she tells, and we gather much helpful information as we live with and love our own pets. There is much to be learned from In A Dog¿s Heart, as well as a great deal to be enjoyed.

    It¿s a special treat to have the book narrated by the author. Listening to her is very much like having a one-to-one with Jennifer Arnold - her respect, passion and love for dogs is contagious.

    Highly recommended.

    - Gail Cooke
