Excerpt
This book is for three kinds of people: 1. Professional dog trainers who want to train service dogs. 100% of this book will be helpful to you. 2 People who work for non-dog-related nonprofits. If you wish to learn how we started our charity, kept it running, and made it work, then over half of this book will be helpful to you. Just ignore the part about dogs! 3. People who love service dogs. This book is NOT about how to train your own service dog.
