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
