Book Review


Bones Would Rain From the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships With Dogs
Author: Suzanne Clothier - Reviewed by Jan

Communication with our dogs is paramount, whether it is in a relationship with our loving friends at home or at play, or whether it is as partners in search and rescue. Suzanne Clothier gives us a framework through which to view training methods. This thought-provoking book encourages us to look beyond teaching our dogs certain behaviors and think about creating bonds with these wonderful beings."Seeking guidance from dog trainers, behaviorists and obedience instructors, we may find ourselves in a real-life experiment when these "experts" tell us what we must do to our dogs in order to train, correct or punish them. Even when our senses tell us that we have stepped past the bounds of what is right and humane, we may find ourselves more concerned with what the teacher or trainer or expert thinks of us than we are with what is happening to our dog." p. 249
