A good deal of helping your fur baby is consistency, and the plan in the book is an ideal way of keeping track of your paw pals, progress. The extra stories really add a connection that I could feel when reading this book. So lets dive into this quick review and the awesome sauce that this book is in regards to Separation Anxiety.
Nicole really breaks down the different aspects of dealing with Separation anxiety in your pets. She focuses on a few different elements and provides a tremendous value with her suggestions in the text. The book starts off explaining some of the behavioral challenges that people face, as well as exactly what separation anxiety is within pets. She connects well with readers in a humorous manner when transitioning between the different parts of the book. Everything from behavioral challenges to helping you develop a personalized plan, and a ton of extra references.
This book is really easy to read, I think that this book explains this at a reading level that is appropriate for anyone reading above a 7th grade level. The Text is really easy to understand and the author does an excellent job of explaining Separation anxiety. The topic was well researched by the author, and she even refers to some studies that we have referenced here in discussing Separation Anxiety(SA). When referencing these studies she breaks down the information making it really easy to understand. The only things, and it is really minor is that sometimes the writing style is geared more towards one specific gender and not everyone, but this is a minor issue and is hardly even noticeable.
Factual and entertaining
The main purpose of this book was a factual read, however the author does an excellent job of incorporating some humor in the writings, you don’t feel like your reading another self help book here. Nothing really stands out that seems untrue, within the writing style. The information flows really well and gets you to want to read the next chapter. Is it a page turner,? not really but it is entertaining. Of course to be fair, how could a book like this be a page turner anyway, the stories told were entertaining and easily relate to you. After reading some of the insights, or other peoples experiences, I really felt connected as though other people knew what I was experiencing. I laughed with this book, there were some funny sayings in the text, it was overall a good balance between fact and entertainment, which is why we rank this so high in this area.
Presentation of Materials
One thing here that I would like to say is that in my assumed opinion there are plenty of motivating extra’s within the content. I really couldn’t find any negatives within the extra content of the book. This book does a really good job of incorporating images and personal stories in an impressive manner. The short stories within the book about a persons personal experience more than help “paint the Picture” to the reader.
