    Book Reviews

    "Touching Animal Souls, a remarkable book by Gabby Harris, delves into important areas of training that pioneers like Pavlov did not include in their lifelong pursuit of understanding the principles of conditioning. In my opinion, is the first serious animal training book that has effectively combined the scientific elements of animal training with a unique way of thinking and acting during our interactions with the animals in our care, thereby providing a more holistic approach for training and caring for those animals."
    - Michael Belshaw, International Marine Animal Trainers Association quarterly journal.

    "I don't work with animals, but I am surrounded by people who do. In this book I recognize so much wisdom that I have seen brought to life by others like my mother, my sister and a certain horseman named 'Patrick' who embodies the open leader spirit that Gabrielle speaks of. I think this is a book that I will continue to dip into long after the last page is closed. Opening it randomly rewards one with clarity and insight and you can't help but smile."
