Dogs are the most social animals on the planet, second only to humans in their ability to read and understand emotion. Even chimps and bonobos, our closest genetic relatives, are no match for dogs when it comes to social cognition. Jennifer Arnold understands this better than anyone, having spent the past 25 years training service dogs for people with disabilities at Canine Assistants. She is a pioneer in the emerging field of "bond-based" dog training.
"changes your relationship with your pup"
Few people are more qualified to speak about the abilities and potential of dogs than Jennifer Arnold, who for the past twenty years has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs. Arnold has developed a unique understanding of dogs' capabilities, intelligence, sensitivity, and extra-sensory skills.
"Great book provides insight and instruction"
Jennifer Arnold has a unique and profound understanding of the human-dog bond. Though it may seem simple and instinctive, the friendship and devotion we share with our pets is a wondrous evolutionary development. Our two species have come to rely on each - other for protection, companionship, comfort, and happiness - needs and benefits that go both ways. As the founder of Canine Assistants, Arnold has implemented and advanced a methodology that pairs scientific and behavioral knowledge about dogs with gentle incentive and encouragement to extraordinary effect.
"Some much to be learned by this wise teacher!"
