UNCONDITIONAL

Older Dogs, Deeper Love

By

Jane Sobel Klonsky

Anyone who has ever shared life with a dog knows that the human-canine bond is one that only grows stronger as dogs get older. For years celebrated photographer and dog lover Jane Sobel Klonsky longed to pursue a project featuring dogs but couldn’t find the right catalyst. It wasn't until a chance meeting at an insurance office in 2012 led her to witness the incredible relationship between Angela, the insurance broker, and her senior Bulldog, Clementine, that it came to her. Since then Jane has traveled the United States with one mission: to capture images and stories that focus on the powerful relationship between humans and their older dogs.

Her book UNCONDITIONAL: Older Dogs, Deeper Love(National Geographic Books; October 25, 2016; $19.95; 208 pages) is a captivating collection of photographs and stories that celebrates humans' special bond with, and love for, their senior dogs. The dogs represented in the book include senior rescues with their adopters, service dogs with those they assist and guide, working dogs with their handlers, and lifelong cherished family pets with the people who dote on them.For each of her subjects, Jane collected personal accounts of their lives intertwined with their canine companions. Together with the photographs, these raw, funny, sometimes heartbreaking stories celebrate the enduring bond between humans and dogs.

Of Jane's photographs, bestselling author Lewis Blackwell says, “Jane has brought her strong photographic sensibilities to explore a delicate and moving subject in a profoundly touching way. It’s a subject that seems tailor-made for the warmth that comes naturally to her images, and yet also enables her to open out and reveal a strong documentary edge.”

UNCONDITIONAL will resonate with anyone now enjoying a close bond with a pet, and it will provide comfort to those who have lost old friends. It’s a beautiful reminder to cherish our older animals and the rich moments we have with them, and to thank them for the love and friendship they unconditionally offer us.

LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED

The Revolutionary Bond-Based Approach to Educating Your Dog

By New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Arnold
On Sale August 23rd, 2016

From the New York Times bestselling author of Through a Dog’s Eyes—the inspiration for the PBS documentary—comes a paradigm-shifting bond-based approach to strengthening our connection with our four-legged best friends.

Dogs are social geniuses, second only to humans in their ability to read and understand emotion. Jennifer Arnold understands this better than anyone, having spent the past 25 years training service dogs for people with disabilities at her non-profit organization, Canine Assistants. She is a pioneer in the emerging field of "bond-based" teaching, and her methods are causing a sea change in the dog world. Arnold believes that obedience training and commands like "sit," "stay," and "heel" are unnecessary and counterproductive-- they're actually the root of anxiety and behavior problems in our dogs. Instead, she maintains that only one thing is necessary for a successful relationship with your dog: a secure bond.
    Arnold's methodology, Bond-Based Choice Teaching (R), is based on the latest in canine neuroscience. It holds that dogs are social learners, and once they've bonded with us they become experts at reading our signals, and can learn to make good decisions for themselves. Arnold's signature "teach don't train" philosophy leaves outdated reward and punishment methods behind in favor of a model that will revolutionize your relationship with your dog.

PRAISE FOR ARNOLD’S THROUGH A DOG’S EYES

 

“Transformative . . . [Arnold] shares her methodology and stories of canine intelligence, sensitivity, language comprehension, and prescience bordering on telepathy. . . . Along

the way, she emphasizes choice-based, positive-reinforcement-only teaching methods

and shares valuable insights that every dog owner should know. Engagingly written

with a perfect balance of science and observation, this book . . . is a worthy

tribute to our canine friends.”

 Publishers Weekly


“Arnold’s voice is assertive with experience—her insights into working with dogs are hard-won after years of close interaction. … The author’s storehouse of anecdotal evidence is telling and entertaining, and her demolition of various alpha-model and negative-reinforcement teaching techniques is thorough and lofty.”

Kirkus Reviews

"Through vivid, memorable, moving stories, Jennifer Arnold provides a scientific argument for what dog lovers everywhere already know: Dogs love, dogs trust, dogs

sense, dogs feel. And they deserve to be treated accordingly. This book’s message

is simply the truth." 

Sara Gruen, author ofWater for Elephants

“There can be no doubt Jennifer Arnold knows her stuff when it comes to training dogs.”
