Gary Boggs is an entrepreneur, business owner, and a cattle rancher, and he’s been training rescue dogs for the last twenty years. Now he has written a wonderful book that’s called WHAT YOUR DOG WANTS TO TELL YOU, Lessons from Bug, A Rescued Dog. I’ve had dogs that have been rescued my whole life, so I was very interested in this book. It really teaches you about how your dog thinks, and I learned a lot from this book. When I started reading, I just kept turning pages and learning more from his dog Bug. It helped me understand my dog Joe better, and I think it will help you if you have a dog or are interested in getting a dog.

Gary has all the credentials for assisting Bug in writing WHAT YOUR DOG WANTS TO TELL YOU, Lessons from Bug, A Rescued Dog. Gary has been a dog handler for twenty years and has handled only rescued dogs. He stands out as the only dog handler that not only worked dogs on the ranch, as cattle herders, but also handled those same dogs in the sports of agility, obedience, discdog, herding, as well as pet therapy and has reached National honors in agility, obedience and discdog. These experiences and expertise made him a person that people can trust in the writing of WHAT YOUR DOG WANTS TO TELL YOU, Lessons from Bug, A Rescued Dog. He is a proponent of choosing the sports and activities that the individual dogs want to compete in rather than choosing a sport that he wants to compete in and then choosing a dog to fit into that specific sport. He has the trusted experience that has allowed him to learn to view things from both the dog’s eyes and the human’s eyes, then translate that into easily understandable, how to tips and lessons for people with dogs.
