From the Publisher:

The 2nd edition of "Therapy Dogs, Training Your Dog to Reach Others" has been completely updated and revised. Every chapter has been reworked to reflect changes in the field since the first edition was published in 1992. There are new chapters, new photos and expanded appendices and resource sections. New in this edition--an outline for teaching therapy dog classes.

The value of using dogs for "animal assisted activities" in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation programs, schools and other settings is now well-recognized. The reader will learn whether he/she is right for this work, how to select, socialize and train the family dog for therapy work and how to get a therapy dog program started.

"Therapy Dogs" has excellent information about safety, liability, working with the elderly, disabled and children. The book is a useful tool for facilities considering inviting therapy dog teams to work with their clients.

Kathy Diamond Davis is a leader in the field of volunteering with your dog. She and her dogs continue to do therapy work and Kathy writes extensively about the subject. The first edition of "Therapy Dogs" was a major force in creating public awareness of this interesting activity.
