From the back cover:

“While volunteering at the Humane Society of Louisiana’s Camp Katrina after the hurricanes of 2005, Debbie Jacobs met Sunny, a border collie mix rescued from a large hoarding site. She had him transported to her home in Vermont, where he spent the first month cowering in a corner. Thus began the journey of helping Sunny escape from his fears.

It was a journey of discover for Jacobs too. She learned that changing a dog’s fear-based behaviours often begins by changing the way we think about the dog. She learned to change her expectations and see Sunny for who he was, not who she thought he should be. And she discovered the most effective and humane ways to help. him and other dogs like him.

Share her journey of change and discovery and learn how you can help your shy, anxious and fearful dog develop the skills and confidence to thrive.”

“While moving heaven and earth to help Sunny, her extremely fearful dog, Debbie Jacobs became an expert on fearful dogs. A Guide to Living With & Training a Fearful Dog is an excellent book for anyone whose life includes a dog who is afraid. It combines explanations of techniques to use with fearful dogs, information on the many resources available to help them, and a feeling of hope. Because Jacobs lived it, she understands what it’s like to work with a dog who is scared in a way so few people do. Her caring, sharing interest in assisting others who want to help a dog overcome fears comes through in every part of this book, and because she’s such an excellent writer, it’s a pleasure to read.” ~ Karen B.
