Training and Compassion-and how to balance the two
Caring for the Sick--ethical concerns

"By viewing companion animals as a gift from God rather than objects that do the will of humans, Debra Farrington helps owners realize a greater sense of responsibility toward their own pets, and shows how the humane care and training of their animals leads to a more fulfilling experience for both."
- Barbara Demarest, canine and feline behavior consultant
