You will start feeling happier, even before you finish the book. Chapter by chapter, you'll get easy-to-use advice that doesn't require you to follow a complicated program or change your whole lifestyle. Dog lovers will immediately connect with the insights and realize that we can embrace the same joyful attitude as our dogs.
