In A Dog's Heart by Jennifer Arnold - Read by the Author
Most of us are familiar with seeing eye dogs but there are a myriad of ways in which dogs assist children and adults with disabilities and special needs. We learn of some of these through the stories Arnold tells, and we also become aware of what dogs expect and most assuredly deserve from us.
As the founder and executive director of Canine Assistants based in Milton, Georgia, Arnold, a non-profit organization that trains service dogs, Arnold is not only highly knowledgeable regarding dog training but she also has a unique understanding of the bonds between man/woman and their dogs.
She shares her 20 years of experience in working with dogs through the stories she tells, and we gather much helpful information as we live with and love our own pets. There is much to be learned from In A Dog’s Heart, as well as a great deal to be enjoyed.
It’s a special treat to have the book narrated by the author. Listening to her is very much like having a one-to-one with Jennifer Arnold - her respect, passion and love for dogs is contagious.
