The book is not at all about how to train dogs to get along in a pack. But that was OK. I have 5 rescues, and what this book did for me was give me two gifts: a new perspective and improved coping skills. I now put myself in my dogs' "paws" more quickly, and I think more about why I react to them the way I do. I used to think I had it rough. Now I know what courage in ending abuse, suffering, neglect, and pain is really about.
If you buy the book and like it, don't forget to donate to Steven and Joy's sanctuary: [...]
In other dog books, I have also liked reading about the author's journey from reluctance to commitment. If Kotler had better narrated his journey, I might have cared equally about his own story. Kotler's journey is however written in such a circular fashion that I frequently felt lost and frustrated. In chapter one, he outlines the negatives about Chimayo (the town where he and his wife will establish a rescue), tells how he and his wife lose their rental house, and shares a story of an animal rescue. In the second chapter, he talks more about his wife, their rental, and their plans for a dog rescue. In the third, he outlines their financial difficulties, muses about altruism, and introduces one of their rescue dogs. In each chapter Kotler revisits the original events, without ever providing a clear timeline. Even after having finished the book, I could not provide a linear narration of his journey. Shouldn't an author make more sense of his world for readers?Read more ›
