About This Book
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.

    AN INDISPENSABLE GUIDE FOR ANY DOG OWNER—NEW OR SEASONED   Jennifer Arnold has come to a unique understanding of the human-dog bond over the two decades she has spent raising and training service dogs for Canine Assistants. She developed a methodology—Choice Teaching—that pairs scientific and behavioral knowledge about dogs with gentle incentive and encouragement to extraordinary effect. Here Arnold shares   • how to choose the puppy that’s destined for you and what to have on hand before you bring that puppy home • best practices when it comes to teaching your dog essential and even lifesaving commands • what to stock in your doggie first-aid kit • how to keep your pet safe from dangers at home and in the outside world • how to help your dog overcome anxious behavior, from separation anxiety to thunderstorm phobia • the challenges and rewards of adopting an older dog   Throughout the book are captivating stories of the extraordinary ways in which dogs prove themselves worthy of our care and devotion—and how we can, and why we should, help them achieve what they so deserve.   “This guide is as practical as it is wise, a keeper book for ready reference.”—Susannah Charleson, author of Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog   “An informative and entertaining book . . . [Arnold’s] insightful words provide knowledge every dog owner needs.”—Publishers Weekly
