In this book, Maria Alomajan shows that dogs should be revered for their remarkable achievements in improving human life. She tells the stories of a great variety of dogs, from their initial selection for work to their training, work experiences and relationships with their handlers and masters. Each story is fleshed out with colourful and sometimes surprising anecdotes based on her interviews with the owners of the animals. From tracking poachers across the great African reserves to digging for avalanche survivors on the snow-covered slopes of Switzerland; from finding endangered whale excrement in the North Atlantic to locating lost families in the South Pacific; from leading the blind in Australia to assisting with scientific research in Thailand; from detecting hidden explosives in war-torn Afghanistan to comforting the elderly in New Zealand, the dogs in this book will both impress and amaze you.
