"Weekends with Daisy" by Sharron Kahn Luttrell (UPDATED)



Weekends with Daisy by Sharron Kahn Luttrell is a wonderful book that gives a first-hand account of a dog trainer who participates with an inmate in training a service dog for the National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEADS).  After Sharron’s dog died, she thought that having a dog just on the weekends would satisfy her loneliness for a dog so volunteered.  The prisoner trained the dog, teaching it new things and her part was to socialize the dog by exposing it do different places and people.  This book details her experience with the program and how the dog helped her family along the way.

I liked this book because it was informative, funny and heartwarming.  I especially liked the parts about the dog classes she attended and specific methods used for training Daisy.

Weekends with Daisy by Sharron Kahn Luttrell tells the true story of Sharron, who after the death of her dog, decides to take a puppy named Daisy for weekends only to train her to become a service dog.  During the week, Keith trains the dog while in prison.  Daisy teaches Sharron and Keith important life lessons.

I LOVED this book because Sharron tells the story so well.  My dog, Abby, and I would be proud to walk with you, Sharron and your dogs.  Keep up the good work!   Check out NEADS.org which this book is based on--they are doing awesome work!
