Summary, etc.: Arnold has always approached the education of dogs with kindness and compassion. And she'd always understood dogs to be uniquely, uncannily attuned to their human companions. She knew that the bond that developed between a person and their service dog was the single greatest predictor of that partnership's success and, conversely, failure to bond brought about anxiety and distress in dogs. But it wasn't until recent scientific findings confirmed her hands-on experience with dogs' intuitive social skills that she was willing to put this bold idea to the test: dogs who bond with us completely and unconditionally will seek to please us and, with minimal cues, can learn to make remarkably sophisticated decisions about their own behavior.
