If the name Paul Owens seems familiar, it may be because he is often referred to as the “original” Dog Whisperer and is one of the world’s leading proponents of positive, force-free, nonviolent animal training. To celebrate his impressive 50th Anniversary as a professional dog trainer, during which he has worked with over 10,000 dogs, he has written Training For The Joy Of Dogs: 50 Lessons Learned. Part 1 opens the door to a lifetime of experiences. Part 2 is a box of topics — written with the enthusiasm of a puppy digging through a pile of toys — including light bulb moments when a client realizes what their dog has been trying to tell them. Part 3 celebrates the folks he’s met along the way — everyone from children whose caring for and training dogs taught them responsibility and empathy to incarcerated men whose relationships with dogs led to their release from prison and future successes. Be sure to check out his other books on compassionate, non-violent dog training and puppy training, and his dog training DVDs as well;
