A "transformative,"* inspiring book with the power to change the way we understand and communicate with our dogs.
Few people are more qualified to speak about the abilities and potential of dogs than Jennifer Arnold, who for twenty years has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs. Through her unique understanding of dogs' intelligence, sensitivity, and extrasensory skills, Arnold has developed an exemplary training method that is based on kindness and encouragement rather than fear and submission, and her results are extraordinary.
To Jennifer Arnold, dogs are neither wolves in need of a pack leader nor babies in need of coddling; rather, they are extremely trusting beings attuned to their owners' needs, and they aim to please. Stories from Arnold's life and the lives of the dogs who were her greatest teachers provide convincing and compelling testimony to her choice teaching method and make "Through a Dog's Eyes" an unforgettable book that will forever change your relationship with your dog.
