Ms. Gilbert’s book shows the reader how both common and creative interactions with dogs can help clients accomplish therapy goals in several professional domains. The book is easy to understand, with illustrative photographs and lists of supplies needed for each exercise. It gives clear expectations of all involved – handler, dog, and client. This is a very useful manual for healthcare professionals and volunteers alike.

We hope that this book will be a useful reference text for health care professionals as well as professionals within the field of dog training who do animal-assisted interventions.
