I was drawn to read this book because of my long-standing belief that animals are indeed sentient beings that have far greater awareness than traditionally thought by mainstream science. In this work the author provides a comprehensive description of the practice of working with animals (in this case dogs) to serve as „co-therapists” as part of a psychotherapy practice. Extensive detail is provided, including numerous excerpts from other related works, all of which provides readers with deep insight into the subject matter. This book would be particularly beneficial to any psychotherapist who is seriously interested in learning how to incorporate animal-assisted psychotherapy (AAP) into his/her existing practice. I was especially interested in the real-life AAP vignettes the author shares, as they clearly demonstrated how her therapy dogs played key roles in assisting clients to improve their mental and emotional health.
