Through A Dog's Eyes

Understanding Our Dogs by Understanding How They See the World

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Jennifer Arnold has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs for over twenty years. In that time she has developed a unique understanding of dogs' abilities and their as yet untapped potential. By understanding the capabilities, intelligence and extrasensory skills of dogs she has taught dogs to make choices, instead of following commands, and her results have been extraordinary.

Through A Dog's Eyes reveals the science behind Jennifer Arnold's remarkable training methods. Based on the belief that dogs are naturally trusting beings attuned to their owners' needs who aim to please, Jennifer Arnold calls for an end to traditional dog-training strategies based on the theory of alpha dominance that is being increasingly challenged by modern science. Jennifer Arnold's choice-based, positive-reinforcement-only methods are based on kindness and respect, founded on scientific discoveries from the work of Charles Darwin, Edward O. Wilson, Rupert Sheldrake and many others.

Written with the practical experience of having founded a service-dog school Jennifer Arnold is an inspirational guide for any dog-owner and she draws from her own life, and the lives of the dogs who were her greatest teachers, in emotional, compelling and uplifting stories that are testimony to the training methods she has developed.

A heartwarming, captivating read that will forever change the way you see your dog by showing you the way that your dog sees the world.

From Publishers Weekly

21 June 2010 – Arnold, founder and executive director of Canine Assistants, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing service dogs for people with disabilities, educates and inspires in this transformative guide to training and celebrating service animals. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 16, Arnold was encouraged by her father to start an organization devoted to helping people with physical disabilities. Now after 20 years of dog training, she shares her methodology and stories of canine intelligence, sensitivity, language comprehension, and prescience bordering on telepathy. She offers shining examples of the heroism of service dogs, from anticipating seizures to resetting a ventilator switch. Along the way, she emphasizes choice-based, positive-reinforcement-only teaching methods and shares valuable insights that every dog owner should know. Engagingly written with a perfect balance of science and observation, this book soon to be a PBS one hour special and series is a worthy tribute to our canine friends.
