...An outstanding, comprehensive work that provides the educational tools necessary to help owners and their dogs adapt quickly to vision problems with minimal stress. Levin's sections on how to train blind dogs leave no stone unturned. "Living With Blind Dogs" provides a giant ray of hope for blind-dog owners who until now have had few places to turn for assistance. -- DOGworld Magazine, September 1998
When Ruthie got sick last winter, it was terrible. I was depressed and in mourning. When I read your book, I felt like I wasn't going crazy, that other people felt the same way. I put down carpet runners like you suggest in the book, and it was great! Making her walk on the runners gave her the confidence to try and walk in public again. Ruthie is doing so much and all because of you and your wonderful book. Thank you again! -- Mollie H. with "Ruthie" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
With a unique combination of professional experiences, Caroline Levin has created the first-ever resource book for the owners of blind and low-vision dogs. Both the veterinary community and dog-owners alike are hailing the arrival of "Living With Blind Dogs". In it, Levin successfully answers the question most commonly asked by devastated pet-lovers: "What do I do now?"
Levin came to write this book, when after a decade in human ophthalmic nursing she left that field to manage an ophthalmic veterinary clinic. Here, she was able to meld her knowledge of ophthalmology with her love of dogs, developing badly needed educational materials for clients. Levin took the opportunity to meet many blind dogs and talk with their owners.
Caroline Levin is also an award-winning dog trainer. She has an in-depth understanding of canine behavior and the methods used to successfully train dogs. She shows her dogs in obedience competitions and the new sport of musical canine freestyle. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description
