Bark and Lunge is the winner of the 2015 National Indie Excellence Award and the Sponsor's Choice Award, as well as a Readers' Favorite Gold Medal.

How do you make sure the dog you love never bites anyone (again)?

Kari and Rob are as devoted to their German shepherd puppy, Isis, as two dog parents can be. Kari’s the disciplinarian, struggling to follow every instruction to the letter. Rob’s the laid-back dad, more of a littermate, happy as long as he can practice jiu-jitsu with the dog.

As she grows, Isis’s behavior escalates from frustrating to dangerous when she bites someone. Kari and Rob learn that some of the old-fashioned advice they followed may have contributed to Isis’s aggression. Eventually, they’re shown a better way to calm an anxious and fearful dog.

"Prospective puppy/dog owners can save themselves a lot of heartbreak by reading Bark and Lunge, which tells the story of what can go wrong when a puppy is not properly socialized and when unsuspecting owners are bullied into using aversive training techniques." – Dr. Ian Dunbar, founder of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers

"Kari and Rob’s love for their German shepherd Isis shines through every page of this moving saga. Their journey through various training techniques and treatments is a testament to their relentless dedication to help Isis to live a normal life. Many dog owners will relate to their story, and even those who can’t will empathize and find it a fascinating read." – Nicole Wilde, author of Hit by a Flying Wolf: True Tales of Rescue, Rehabilitation and Real Life with Dogs and Wolves

About the Author:

Kari Neumeyer has a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School and has worked for news outlets in Washington state and the Czech Republic. She grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television.

Now she lives in Bellingham, Washington, with her beau, Rob, and their dog family. In her spare time, she volunteers teaching an adaptive martial arts class to adults with developmental disabilities at the Max Higbee Center, fostering a love of creative writing to Whatcom Young Writers, and walking shelter dogs at the Humane Society of Skagit Valley.

She blogs about dogs at KariNeumeyer.com.

Review:

Prospective puppy/dog owners can save themselves a lot of heartbreak by reading Bark and Lunge, which tells the story of what can go wrong when a puppy is not properly socialized and when unsuspecting owners are bullied into using aversive training techniques. Please read this book so you don't make the same mistakes with your puppy. - Dr. Ian Dunbar, founder of Association of Professional Dog Trainers

Bark and Lunge is not an easy journey from point A to point B with loose ends neatly tied up. It is something much better: a truthful, sometimes painful, always hopeful account of life with a dog who has anxiety and reactivity issues. Many dog owners will relate to their story, and even those who can't will empathize and find it a fascinating read. - Nicole Wilde, author of Hit by a Flying Wolf

Bark and Lunge is worth reading slowly for the details and for the joy of it. The book recognizes the inappropriate use of simple dominance theory which is so common and so wrong for dogs. Many dog owners will recognize some of the questions they have and now, will have some answers. - Professor Alan M. Beck, Professor and Director, Center for the Human-Animal Bond, College of Veterinary Medicine, Purdue University
