In a Dog’s Heart is partially a book about the unconditional love that a dog has for all humans, partially a blasting of most of the training methods that are popular today, and partially a resource for training your dog.

The author has presented a very well written and well organized book for anyone who loves dogs. She kept the focus on the issue at hand in every chapter and highlighted her points well with true stories.

The unconditional love and first hand stories were well written and touching. I enjoyed reading about the lives changed by the service dogs that have been trained by the authors sanctuary. But I think that mentioning other people involved in the dog training industry in a negative light was a little over the top. Subtle use of the styles of training would have worked much better.

The training tips and appendixes at the back of the book would be helpful to a new dog owner when bringing the dog home for the first time.

I would love to see Jennifer write a book full of stories about the love of dogs that she has experienced or heard about in her organization. That was more what I was expecting out of this book.

I received this book free from the Goodreads giveaway program.
