"Author and veterinarian Annie Bowes discovered at a young age that having a dog was invaluable. From encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle to providing unmatched emotional and social support, a dog is a perfect companion for anyone, but especially those with autism. Bowes discusses the countless ways the understanding, acceptance and boundless love of a dog benefits everyone - particularly those on the spectrum." - BOOK JACKET
