About The Book

People love their pets—especially their dogs. They treat them as children, as part of the family. They want to do everything they can for them, including making them feel loved, welcomed, and appreciated around the house. By delving into dogs’ worlds holistically through their mind, body, spirit, and space, The Holistic Dog delivers a thorough understanding of our canine friends. The mind portion covers their habits and personalities. The body addresses their breeds and physical characteristics. Spirit represents the dogs’ dispositions and the many ways they enhance the home atmosphere. Space captures the dogs’ connections to the beauty of the unique environments they call home.

Lifestyle expert Laura Benko interviews various holistic care practitioners such as holistic veterinarians, a canine masseuse, a canine behaviorist, an animal communicator, and more. Photographs and step-by-step instructions enable readers to gain helpful tips and insights into holistic pet care and teach readers how to implement them on their own dogs. From pug to greyhound, purebred to winning mix, these dogs jump off the pages of The Holistic Dog and into our laps, warming our hearts with their charming stories by Benko and photographs by Susan Fisher Plotner, inviting us into their spaces, and introducing us to the trajectory of holistic pet care.
