Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book! I received Successful Tails as a Christmas gift. I so enjoyed all the testimonials, stories, and pictures, as well as the explanation of the therapy dog programs. I was amazed at the wonderful work therapy dogs do. This book is truly inspiring and I hope it has been an encouragement in spreading the therapy dog program to other places. I particularly enjoyed reading the comments from the different hospital staff, each speaking from the area of their expertise and explaining how the dogs assisted in the work in their field. I was moved by many of the stories. The deaf girl signing her book to a therapy dog, therapy dogs attending memorial services and comforting family members, and the sensitivity of the dogs to the needs and moods of those they served are just a few examples that come to mind. I highly recommend this book.

Patricia Wheeler's work with Therapy Dogs is chronicled in this wonderful book. I have seen how effective these remarkable dogs can be in providing therapy for the elderly. Dr. Wheeler's dogs have provided aid not only to the elderly but to patients suffering from a variety of physical and mental conditions. This book is a must read for anyone interested in this very important work.

Purchased this book to enhance my knowledge about therapy dogs.
It is very well written and I am thoroughly enjoying it.
It is easy reading and one can read a few of the stories
and comments, put it down and come back to it without losing any content.

Great job of enlightening the reading public on a subject
more people need to know about. The use of the therapy dogs
in so many facets of life, medicine, education and
military recovery now only makes this book a must read.

I have met the author of this heartwarming book. It is informative and oftentimes even heart-wrenching. Dr. Wheeler narrates it as if talking to friends. She and volunteers like her and their fantastic dogs do a remarkable service for many people that need love and comforting.

This book is just plain wonderful. The stories offer a lot of insight into training, handling and most of all the result of using therapy dogs to improve the lives of recovering patients -- be they veterans in V.A. facilities or rest homes. Pat does a beautiful job of making this book a pleasure for anyone to read, put down, pick up and take up at a later time without missing a beat. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
