Format: Hardcover
I am a legally blind former Dairy Herdsnam. I was enthralled by the stories in this book, and grateful for the info given about the different guide dog schools. It helped make my choice of which school to apply for a dog easier. I think this book should be required reading for anyone entereing the special needs/education professions!

Format: Hardcover
The second edition of "Partners in Independence: A Success Story of Dogs and the Disabled," by Ed and Toni Eames, will be of interest to those who want to understand more about dogs partnered with people who have disabilities. This edition is published by Barkleigh Productions, Inc. The Eameses are activists for the rights of people with disabilities, including the right to be accompanied by a trained and well-behaved assistance dog in public places.
The book covers a wide range of information about assistance dogs to people with disabilities. You'll find legal information, insights into life with various disabilities and how dogs can help, and a great deal of the history of dogs assisting people with disabilities. You'll also read warm stories, travel tales, some of the politics of the disability rights movement, and etiquette of how to help (and how not to try to help) a person with a disability you encounter in public.
The Eamses estimate there are about 20,000 assistance dogs--that's the total of guide dogs, hearing dogs and service dogs for disabilities such as mobility--working in the United States. Compared to even therapy dogs, this is a relatively small number, and many people have encountered few if any assistance dogs in their lives. It's no wonder that the legal rights of disabled people to have their assistance dogs with them in public are not well understood by most people--not even otherwise dog-savvy people. This book will clear up a lot of confusion, and it's fun to read in the process.

As someone who suffers from a disability (epilepsy), it was a pleasure to learn that not only wasn't I alone, but that my seizure alert dog is part of a greater whole. The assistance dog movement is growing and through this book more people will learn of its benefits.
