Jocelyn Kessler is a dog trainer and intuitive. In this book she shares several sessions in which she helps not only the dog, but the owners as well. Anyone who has a dog knows the deep bond that can grow between human and animal, and while Kessler highlights how often times that connection is good, she also shares incidents where it's not so good.Was this review helpful?

In one chapter, "Balancing Alpha Energy," she shares the story of two large dogs named Billy and Lila. Billy completely dominated the female dog. The owners also had an imbalance in the household. The husband encouraged this behavior in Billy, while also exhibiting the same tendencies toward his wife. Dogs are frequently at the mercy of our own energies.
Kessler works at the energetic level, akin to shamanic healing, while also trying to make the owners more aware of their own attitudes and behaviors, the way they "throw" their energy around. Dogs are highly tuned to this.
This book is fascinating. Whether you agree with Kessler's assessments (she often states how the dogs "know" why they're with you, how in some cases they "chose" their owners), I dare anyone to come away from her insights and not look at your relationship with your pet in a different light. If anything, it illuminates the deep caring and intelligence dogs carry within, which is hardly a surprise to dog-lovers.
