Princeton, NJ – Bestselling author Jennifer Arnold, founder of Canine Assistants, will discuss and sign her latest book IN A DOG’S HEART: WHAT OUR DOGS NEED, WANT AND DESERVE - AND THE GIFTS WE CAN EXPECT IN RETURN on Tuesday, October 11 at 7:00 pm at the Princeton Barnes & Noble, 3535 US Route 1 South in the MarketFair Mall, Princeton, NJ. Ms. Arnold will have her dog “Butch” with her as well. Seating will begin at 5:00 pm on a first-come, first-seated basis. Priority seating with book purchase. Standing room will be available and signing will follow Q&A.
As the founder of Canine Assistants, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this fall, Arnold has developed a methodology – Choice Teaching – that pairs scientific and behavioral knowledge about dogs with gentle incentive and encouragement to extraordinary effect. When communication between dog and human is based on kindness and a willingness to see things through a dog’s eyes, the payoff for both dog and owner is tremendous.
IN A DOG’S HEART takes on controversial topics such as breed bans, bite laws, and the Alpha concept – a practice Arnold believes not only has a negative effect on man, but in some cases can lead to the death of innocent dogs. The book also offers Arnold’s best practices and most useful life-long tips for dogs including:
q How to choose the puppy right for you and what to have on hand before bringing a puppy home
q What to stock in your doggie first aid kid
q How to keep your pet safe from dangers at home and in the outside world
q Challenges and rewards of adopting an older dog
q How to help your dog overcome anxious behavior
q When to recognize that it’s time to let go
