  2. A nice guide to what your dog will have to do and be to do this work. be sure you want to share your dog in this way and be sure of the unpredictability of patients and dogs in general. your dog must have a quiet sound patient temperment to do this and so must you. Listen to the words of the book…. they make sense.Autumn of Blessed Acres service dog

  3. The book is excellent in pointing out how working a therapy dog is not like other activities with your dog. The author gives many good examples of what the handler must be alert for and how to make the dog’s interaction with others comfortable. It is less good in giving step-by-step instructions on exactly how to train the therapy dog. The book will be excellent for someone with good experience in dog training; it is not for the beginner.
