"After an extremely harrowing search-and-rescue that involved dogs that had been tortured, author Susannah Charleson developed a stress-related disorder. She later noticed that her own dog helped pull her out of episodes of anxiety, and she became interested in psychiatric service dogs. The Possibility Dogs relates her discoveries about the work of dogs trained to help people with psychological disorders and explains how she learned to identify suitable dogs and train them herself. Her memoir also provides moving accounts of particular dogs and their successes in helping humans with especially challenging problems."

A well-written book by someone who has experience with dogs and their training, assistance dogs, and dog rescue work.
