Hounds who heal – It’s a kind of magic
About the book
The K9 Project is a unique organisation that works with ex-shelter dogs, providing therapeutic education, personal development, and canine-assisted coaching. Heart-warming, educational, inspiring, funny – yet sharply realistic – this is the story of human and canine companionship, courage, determination, and resolve. Each dog has a unique gift that can help vulnerable and isolated children and adults discover motivation, self-belief, and that often elusive feeling of connection.
Telling the story of each of the dogs, and many of the people they helped along the way, you’ll also hear from those whose lives have been transformed. Chris Kent, founder of this unique project, describes the laughter, frustration, joy, and tears of the Project’s eight-year journey.
Discover how the very special dogs of the K9 Project have shaped so many lives.
