"Animals are more complete than people. They are wonderful teachers, therapists and role models for us all. Read Healing Companions and learn about their ability to guide and heal us all."--Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Smudge Bunny As the more than 65 million dog owners in America will attest, there's something about the presence of a dog that inspires confidence, nurtures emotional well-being, and brings out the best in ourselves. But for some people, the presence of a dog can do even more. Written by the leading expert in an emerging new field of therapy, Healing Companions is the first book to detail how dogs are increasingly benefiting those who suffer from a range of emotional ills, from eating disorders and anxiety to agoraphobia, depression, and post-traumatic stress. Healing Companions will teach you: * What criteria to consider when choosing the right dog for you. * What kind of training service dogs require. * What to expect and how to respond when you take a service dog out in public. * How a dog can compliment other forms of therapy. * How to navigate the procedural regulations that apply to a service dog. * How to recognize the dog's needs and provide it with proper care. * And much more.

Review Text

  • By B. A. Ferner on 16 April 2010

    I bought this book because I am interested in all aspects of our lives and interactions with dogs. I expected to find it full of useful information, but I didn't expect it to be such a good read! I have really enjoyed it, and found it difficult to put down. I can recommend it on two levels - mainly as a very useful source of practical information, but also because it is full of human - and dog - interest in the stories of assistance dogs and their human companions.We are all used to seeing assistance dogs with people with physical disabilities but I hope this book will bring a greater understanding of people whose disabilities are not obvious but who have just as great a need of assistance dogs. Unfortunately, PSDs have no formal recognition as yet in the UK, but books such as this may help pave the way. I hope so. No one reading this book can be in any doubt of their value.All in all I can highly recommend this book. It is a valuable addition to my library.
