Lisa and Boo were meant to find each other. Watching Lisa grow in a new way and become more confident and strong in who she is, letting go of the past, and grasping what Boo could do as a therapy dog is such a blessing not only to Lisa, but to all those Boo has helped along the way. I cried, laughed, easily related to Lisa, and found myself having an even deeper understanding of the profound bond animals can have with us.
It was beneficial to me to hear from a dog trainer's point of view the different aspects of training your dog for therapy dog work. And how refreshing it was to watch as Lisa learned to focus on Boo's good things, instead of her planned agenda for what she thought he should do. This opened avenues and opportunities that would have never been. Boo and Lisa are a blessing and I'm so glad Lisa shared her story in this sweet and compassionate book.
