The dog stories: Nemo, Rocket, Poncho - all of them.
Steady, a little monotone.
Sort of, I don't really listen like that.
This book will help you understand your dog better. The author gets it. His experience training top working dogs to integrate with top teams is a testament to professionalism. Pet owners can do a little vicarious living in the stories and take away tips to enhance their own human / canine relationships.
Did not read the print
When the author discussed the feats of courage that dogs would perform with their handlers. Amazing animals just like the special forces and SEALS they work with.
How the author felt about the dogs that were too tough for adoption by anybody other than him.
If you love dogs and enjoy miltary stories then this is a good listen.
Probably not but it held my interest slightly enough to half way listen and finish. I was hesitate in reading this based on the few reviews. While it wasn't a terrible read, it certainly spent more time than it should on different parts of history that doesn't seem to add to the overall thesis of the book.
The war story's the author shared of different dogs and their handlers. The author does a good job in portraying the different personalities of the dogs.
The author tends to repeat himself numerous times on several things. I can't count the times I heard him refer to the finding and then a paragraph down he says the same or similar sentence.
Like mentioned above, the author does a great job at describing the scene and "characters". This made all the recounts of scenes enjoyable to listen to.
No but it could maybe use restructuring with some of the history fluff pulled out.
Again, this wasn't a bad read and the performance by Jeff was good. I probably wouldn't recommend it to a war buff or dog lover, unfortunately.
