Bonnie Bergin originated the service dog concept and movement, and she has been training dogs to assist people with disabilities for more than thirty years. She knows that dogs have an almost limitless capacity to learn. Teaching dogs to read was one of her dreams-and now she has made that dream a reality with a system anyone can use with just about any dog. In this clear.

The Bergins then spent two years teaching in Australia followed by travel through Asia where she saw donkeys and burros carrying kitchen-wares for people who also used them as crutches while making their way to a street corner to sell their wares. Her experiences of this and seeing other disabled people in Asia struggling to fend for themselves led her to consider the possibility of using dogs to do tasks that would allow individuals with mobility limitations to live independently as a part of mainstream society. 1994 You and Your Great Dog.

This is such a fun book and fun concept. Dogs can learn commands in many different forms: vocal, whistles, hand signals, line drawings, and even in printed words (no, your dog is not going to read the newspaper). Teaching your dog a command that it already knows vocally in a printed format (on a flash card) is a fun way to bond with your dog, a clever "trick" to show off how smart you dog is, and can even be useful at times (read the book to find out how). It's a short book and if you like working with your dog (and we all should) gives an owner another variety of activities to work with your dog on; and it is a form of work that is fulfilling to a dog.
The last chapter in the book is about teaching your dog to be a reading therapy dog, i.e. to listen to children read aloud to help them with their reading skills (really what I wanted the book for, because being a retired librarian I've felt what fun it would be to have a dog I could take to the library and have children enjoy reading to). Dr. Bergin's approach to this is to teach the dog to be an active listener, looking at the book while listening, not just resting or sleeping.
Really excellent book and principles.

I gave it five stars because I knew what to expect because I had read it before. The author gives a step by step instruction on how to teach your dog to read and it worked for me. She's an authority on service dog training so her methods have been proven to be effective. This book is for anyone who wants to teach their dog a truly interesting trick that will WOW everyone.

Most noticeable about this book, is that the instructions are crystal clear. I would attribute this not only to the authors experience with dog training but also education. I read many a training book without learning the what, where, and when of the exercise. Oh, and yes, you can teach your dog to recognize words, aka "read". This is the only book of perhaps 30 that I have checked out that have this kind of clarity.

I was very impressed with this book, and eager to "teach my dog to read". Everything is explained in a very simple way and you are even given an idea of the stages to expect as you are training your dog. This book offers a wealth of ideas, not only on teaching your dog to read, but also on using your dog to help children read. I was hoping to teach my dog one or two words....we're on number 7. Can't go wrong with this book.

I bought it for my colleague's German shepherd. And my colleague liked it. His dog, Bruno, isn't done reading yet, so I'll post when he finishes it.
  • Kerahuginn
I was rather skeptical when I purchased this book. However, after careful reading and constant and consistent training, our dog is able to recognize and distinguish between specific word cards presented. It truly amazes everyone!!

As described, thanks.
My dog can now read two words for real!
I WATCHED THE DVD FIRST and then decided to back it up with the book.
