The author is a second generation dog trainer who after 40 years of training acquired a disability herself. Her qualification for writing about service dog training is difficult to question. I've trained a few dogs in obedience and advanced house manners, but I've never entered the "clicker training" world. All during my reading I kept asking myself 'why not?' Explained with a sense of humor instead of the dry aspect of PhD dissertation on an obscure aspect of Skinner's breakthrough research as I encountered in my first "clicker" book. I gave up on the idea reasoning that if learning the book was a trial of patience, the actual training would be unbearable! It didn't help that I was barely out of my teens! After this book it seems very doable for most who have at least some successful experience with training a dog. It also asks for more patience & a slower pace plus ones' own sense of humor as well as a poker face to tamp down the showing of frustration when things are not moving as quickly as one hoped (especially difficult when one is in excruciating pain most of the time!)I also loved the way the author kept focusing on the two being a team that cannot be parted, I hadn't fully realized somehow that the service dog and the handler are truly two parts of a whole. My head had wrapped around it, but they way it was explained gently and repeatedly really drove home the logistics to actually make it happen.Another point I thought was exceedingly helpful from an integrity standpoint was that in any phase of training they don't go to public places without a "SERVICE DOG IN TRAINING" vest and not be tempted to claim it is an actual service dog until the dog is 100% trained and exceptionally reliable.
