Welcome

This is

We love to highlight examples of the people+dog bond that pop up in unusual places, the ones that fill us with giddy delight. 

And we find them everywhere: in photography, literature, art, music and personal stories.

We wish to foster a positive image of Assistance Dogs; to have their numbers swell and thrive until they become ubiquitous. Why do many people have a biased or limited view of assistance dogs? It may be because there are few Assistance Dogs out there, working in public. We feel that the best way to help Assistance Dogs and their people gain more attention is to throw the spotlight on them. And what better way than through the stories of the people who breed them, train them, raise them, live with them, and above all, work with them.

And lastly, we dive into Animal-Assisted Interventions in a novel, offbeat way. Up close and personal, face-to-face, with honesty and clarity. AAI presented through the stories of the people who participate, train the dogs, instruct people, direct and develop innovative projects, and create new ways to champion beneficial dog + people interactions.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the Dog Heart Magazine posts!
