In this book, scientific evidence is presented throughout to support the importance of dogs in improving the life of man and the ways in which dogs could play an even more helpful part. The role of dogs in medicine, such as the remarkable results which have been obtained for example with autistic children, the mentally ill and old people and in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders is examined and the personality of dog owners discussed. This timely and topical book will have a wide readership appeal - from social workers, psychiatrists, and psychologists, to vets and the legion of interested dog owners.

From Publishers Weekly:

Readers interested in interspecies communication and the paranormal will find this volume to their liking. Steiger (Strange Powers of Pets) tells some remarkable stories of canine heroism: dogs that saved their families from fire or rescued lost children; a pit bull that saved dozens of people and dogs in the 1993 California floods. Steiger reminisces about his own dogs and their relationships with his family. He gives advice on how to communicate with dogs, discusses the value of pet therapy and offers several instances of ghost dogs appearing to their owners. Also covered are findings of current medical research into the positive effects of pets on humans, such as lowered blood pressure. Some of this may be too speculative or bizarre for the average dog owner, but many of the stories are enjoyable. Photos.
