Awareness Centered Training - ACT is an educational dog training book that brings peace of mind to dog parents too. If you have a potential therapy dog, ACT will help with all you need to desensitize and build a foundation for becoming a registered pet therapy team. ACT integrates daily training techniques for living and learning with dogs. It covers a “whole” approach (balance, relationship, education, nutrition, behavior shaping and re-shaping) by a well-known and experienced dog lover and board certified counselor.
