Overview

Have you ever told a little white lie? Or maybe a bigger one that wasn't even white? Have you ever stomped through the front door all grumpy and barking at your kids, or your spouse? Have you ever questioned the value of being persistent, not giving up. Or being loyal. Have you ever had to work at making someone else happy? Have you ever shaded the truth in a business deal? Or pondered the meaning of the word selfish?

Your dog hasn't. None of the above.

And we can all learn from that.

And that's what this book is about.

Joe Camp has spent three decades wandering around inside the heart and soul of a dog, writing Benji stories, directing Benji movies, trying to understand how to better draw you, the audience, in there with me. This time and effort spent on four legs learning to inhale the world from a canine point of view has taught me many amazingly simple lessons about life. Lessons that can and should apply to our lives, yours and mine, because they work better.

For you see, dogs know more than we do.

By knowing less.

They realize that one's soul prospers from sharing, caring, relating, fulfilling. And they know there is nothing more important in life than love. Not money. Not status. Not peer pressure.

Nothing can make you feel better than doing something good for somebody else. Putting another being before yourself. Not cars. Not houses. Not facelifts. Not watching television.

John Grogan, author of Marley & Me, says, "People can learn a lot from their dogs. Lessons on how to lead happier, more fulfilling lives. Lessons for successful relationships. Think about it. Many of the qualities that come so effortlessly to dogs - loyalty, devotion, selflessness, unflagging optimism, unqualified love - can be elusive to humans."

But not any more. Now humans can read Dog On It and change their lives for the better. Forever. Because their reminder is ever present, lying at their feet.

PRAISE FOR JOE CAMP'S WRITING:

"Joe Camp is a master storyteller." The New York Times

"One cannot help but be touched by Camp's love and sympathy for animals and by his eloquence on the subject." - Michael Korda - The Washington Post

"Joe Camp is a natural when it comes to understanding how animals tick and a genius at telling us their story. His books are must-reads for those who love animals of any species." - Monty Roberts - Author of New York Timers Best-seller The Man Who Listens to Horses

"To say too much about Camp's compelling book would be to spoil much of the beauty and simplicity of the story. The tightly-written, simply-designed and powerfully drawn chapters often read like short stories that flow from the heart." Jack L. Kennedy - The Joplin Independent

"Joe Camp is a gifted storyteller and the results are magical. Joe entertains, educates and empowers, baring his own soul while articulating keystone principles of a modern revolution in horsemanship." - Rick Lamb - TV/Radio host - The Horse Show

"I wish you could hear my excitement for Joe Camp's new book, The Soul of a Horse. It is unique, powerful, needed." - Dr. Marty Becker - Best-selling author of several "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books; Popular veterinary contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America"

"An amazing, amazing book." Janet Parshall - Janet Parshall's America

"I am forever changed by this spectacular book!" - Raina Smith - reader.

Meet the Author

Joe Camp showed us the heart and soul of a dog when he created the canine superstar Benji. And he lured us into the soul of a horse in his engaging, emotional, and often humorous best seller The Soul of a Horse: Life Lessons from the Herd, now in its 11th printing, a book that set traditional thinking about horses on its ear while changing the lives of horses and people all across the planet. Camp now deftly lures us back into the heart and soul of a dog with his passionate analysis of how dogs enhance our lives.

Camp has written, produced and directed seven theatrical motion pictures (including all of the Benji movies) cumulatively grossing well over the equivalent of $600 million in today's dollars, making him one of the most successful independent filmmakers of all time. In addition to his eight books about horses, Joe has also written three novels from his own screenplays, and several children's books. Joe Camp, film writer, producer, director, author, passionate speaker, and the man behind the canine superstar Benji believes that anything is possible if you work hard enough and have faith in yourself and God.

Even with all the accomplishments and media exposure, Camp is still in awe of his own success. "Inside, I'm still a kid sitting in a dark theater in Little Rock, Arkansas, watching Disney's 'Song of the South' or reading books like the Black Stallion with happy tears rolling down my cheeks," he says. "To be able to bring that that kind of happiness to others is very special."

    The Mark of a Real Teacher This is my favorite media review out

    The Mark of a Real Teacher
    This is my favorite media review out of hundreds we’ve been blessed to receive: “Camp has become something of a master at telling us what can be learned from animals without making us realize we have been educated, and, that is, perhaps, the mark of a real teacher. The tightly written, simply designed, and powerfully drawn chapters often read like short stories that flow from the heart.” Jack L. Kennedy, The Joplin Independent
