Description



About the Book



For the past 20 years. Arnold has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs, and has developed a unique training method based on teaching dogs to make choices--as opposed to following commands--through kindness and encouragement rather than fear and submission.



Book Synopsis



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.

Review Quotes



"A perfect balance of science and observation, this book . . . is a worthy tribute to our canine friends."--Publishers Weekly

"Charming."--The Washington Post

"Arnold's voice is assertive with experience. . . . Her storehouse of anecdotal evidence is telling and entertaining, and her demolition of various alpha-model and negative reinforcement teaching techniques is thorough and lofty."--Kirkus Reviews

"There can be no doubt Jennifer Arnold knows her stuff when it comes to training dogs."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Vivid, memorable, moving . . . Jennifer Arnold provides a scientific argument for what dog lovers everywhere already know: Dogs love, dogs trust, dogs sense, dogs feel. This book's message is simply the truth."--Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants
