The Heartbeat at Your Feet is the first book to reveal how you can fully understand and communicate with dogs, and how you can easily eliminate any behavior problems, based on new information about animal behavior. Each chapter explores the mind of the dog, its instincts, body language, how and why dogs respond to the people and animals around them, and the profound insights you can gain into what your dog is thinking and feeling through the simple process of observation. Enlightening (and entertaining!), the book guides readers to look at life from your dog’s point of view, to understand what your dog is trying to tell you and why, and to notice what makes your pooch listen to you. Including real-life examples throughout the work, The Heartbeat at Your Feet explains how positive methods of behavior modification work more effectively (and permanently) than old dominance methods, which have now proven to be ineffective. As a canine psychologist and professional consultant to dog owners, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma explains compassionate ways of working with dogs and offers readers a guide to improving pet behavior and the relationship between you and your beloved pooch.

Authoritative, yet sensitive and personal, this wonderful book is indispensable for all who seek to know their dogs, and revelatory for those of us who think we already do. (Bel Mooney, columnist and author of A Small Dog Saved my Life )

Lisa Tenzin-Dolma offers a refreshing alternative to harsh dominance-based dog training methods. It is based on teaching the dog to trust his owner and to choose to cooperate rather than forcing or coercing the dog to obey commands. The inclusion of interesting facts about the way dogs think and illustrative case histories gives the reader much more than just useful training methods. A definite paws up book. (Stanley Coren, PhD, FRSC, professor of psychology and author of many books including Born to Bark and How to Speak Dog )

The Heartbeat at Your Feet is a heart-warming book. Following her case studies and Sympatico approach, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma’s gentle nature shines through in her writing, demonstrating the magic of being kind, patient but firm. Her approach will bring out the best in all who read this book. (Theo Stewart, chair of The Association of INTO Dogs and approved Victoria Stilwell Positively Trainer )
