Review


“Informative, engaging, and completely current, Careers with Dogs is the kind of book I wished for when I was deciding upon my career path. An indispensable resource for dog lovers of all ages!”

Dr. Marty Becker, ABC-TV’s Good Morning America’s Resident Veterinarian

Library Journal, stared review. Thornton, Kim Campbell. Careers with Dogs: The Comprehensive Guide to Finding Your Dream Job. BowTie. Dec. 2010. c.488p. photogs. index. ISBN 9781933958194. pap. $24.95. CAREERS
Thornton, author or coauthor of more than 30 books on the health, behavior, and care of dogs and cats, has compiled a complete catalog of career paths for dog lovers. Written for the high school and college-age student, this comprehensive directory of career descriptions encompasses information like that found in the Occupational Outlook Handbook but, owing to its smaller scope, in a more detailed manner. Noteworthy are the in-depth interviews and "barkworthy bites of advice" from canine professionals; attitudinal, educational, and on-the-job skills required for each career; and expert advice on how to get started. Thornton describes such careers as behaviorists, veterinarians, rehabilitation therapists, researchers, shelter managers and rescuers, working-dog handlers, advocates, breeders, entrepreneurs, and canine artists, writers, and photographers. Color photos throughout the text enhance the descriptions.
Verdict Current, comprehensive, and informative, this is an unparalleled resource for students investigating careers focused on dogs. Extensive references for education, training, and certification as well as cursory information on determining a career path, writing a résumé, and honing interview skills make this a valuable resource. Highly recommended.—Jane Scott, George Fox Univ. Lib., Newberg, OR

I'm 14 yrs. old & I received this book about a week ago. I ordered it before it even came out! I want to work with dogs and wanted to explore different careers with them. This book was just what i was looking for. It's packed with numerous jobs, their description, salary, & lots of pictures! There are jobs i never even imagined! It's a 2011 book so it has every job you could think of and very recent info. If you are considering a career with dogs, this book is for you! You won't be disappointed!

Really enjoyed reading this book, and seeing all the providers in one resource. Ms. Thornton does a great job in putting together a great number of skilled and recognizable providers in dog career fields. The only thing I saw with this great resource were lack of references given as to how to contact a provider. I was particularly interested in Jane Miller. LISW. CDBC book "Healing Companions, Ordinary Dogs and Their Extraordinary Power to Transform Lives" As with many resources throughout the book, her fine work and skills are noted but there is no reference to her website [...] or her 1-800-457-0345 number. This information would be helpful for a full reference for careers with dogs.

For the high school student contemplating an initial career choice to the person considering a career change, "Careers with Dogs" offers something for everyone interested in a career with a canine connection. "Careers with Dogs" delves into job opportunities beyond the obvious veterinary positions. Interested in marketing, education, or wildlife? How about genome research, flight attendant or entrepreneur? There are jobs in these fields and many, many others that are "fido friendly".

Ms. Thornton, an award-winning and well-regarded expert in the pet field, has compiled an up-to-date, easy to read resource that lists an exceptional array of careers in a variety of fields and highlights the necessary requirements.

"Careers with Dogs" is a must-have book every high school and college counselor, job center and public library should have on their shelves.
