About E.D. Montaigne
E.D. Montaigne is an award-winning writer and author.
While writing she often has a cat on her lap, two or three dogs at her feet, and very likely a cup of tea turned cold sitting on the table. She writes memoir, narrative nonfiction, and humorous and heart-felt fiction. She loves telling stories which weave life, love, foibles, and memory together to find the fleeting wisdom in the time-bound life experience we all share.
Training Two: Learning the Language of Love from Two Dogs Who Share One Brain is her first memoir.
She is at work on a second memoir—a sequel to Training Two— entitled Return Voyage. It expected out later this year and she is posting excerpts and updates at her website. She is also at work on a work of fiction: Prophecy.

And with that training wisdom — told to so many people besotted with two littermates by well-meaning trainers — a challenge was undertaken.
"It's like Marley-- but times two..."
Trying to 'train' the pups became a heart-opening journey through laughter and frustration, of being dragged across parks, trying a variety of training styles and even a visit to a dog shrink,... But the journey resulted in learning the language the two pups shared to become a part of their family-pack.
The pups taught a language of Love— unconditional love, reliability, and care for each other and for their family-pack that most humans only dream about.
And that was the secret -- learning how to speak their language of love -- to communicate across species boundaries.
Training Two is at times laugh-out-loud funny in the story of trying to keep up with their shared lightening fast communications, and at other times heart-opening in its sudden lessons in compassion and realization. They share a world all the trainers missed and yet didn't give up on the human-author. Instead they taught her their invisible, lightening fast language and gave their greatest gift: Unconditional love to those they came to accept as family.
For anyone who loves dogs, has a family, or has lost one due to divorce or empty nest, Training Two will entertain, inspire, and humble in its heart-felt exploration of what is possible in our dog-human love affairs and communications inter-species.
Written by an award-winning writer, E.D. Montaigne takes you with her on her journey in memoir. It is both a romp through the stilted world of dog trainers and a heart-warming story of life as we all know it, reminding us to really live—and love— each day we have to share with our beloveds.
Like a conversation with a friend, Training Two is perfect for women's book groups or as a gift for any dog lover experiencing love, loss, and needing laughter and a warm hug. Or a slurb of companionship.
