Through A Dog's Eyes Summary


Through A Dog's Eyes: Understanding Our Dogs by Understanding How They See the World by Jennifer Arnold

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.

Through A Dog's Eyes Reviews


"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"
