It offers a historical overview of the practice, detailing its growth, efficacy, and the many ways it is practiced today. It contains illustrative examples such as successful programs where children with reading problems read aloud to canine companions, and illuminates the nature and effectiveness of animal-assisted therapy. In examining those programs the work explores how the practice is applied both generally and among special populations, including children, the elderly, autistic individuals, and the incarcerated. The book also provides specific information of interest to pet owners who want to get involved in these programs and includes information on U.S. government requirements allowing guide dogs in public and private facilities."@en ;
