Description

The K9 Project is a unique organization that works with rescue dogs who now act as therapy dogs. Heart-warming and educational Hounds Who Heal tells the story of human/canine companionship as isolated adults and children learn to believe in themselves and make the often-elusive connection to a friend.

Telling the story of each of the dogs, and many of the people they helped along the way, you’ll also learn from the people whose lives have been transformed. Chris Kent, founder of this unique project, has her story told as well; you'll love her tale of laughter, frustration, joy, and tears of the Project’s eight-year journey.

The author

Chris Kent is a multi-skilled professional who has worked with troubled and vulnerable children and their families for 40 years. Working in education, social care, fostering, family support, residential childcare, and youth work, she gained well rounded experience and considerable expertise. In 2008 she decided to combine her two major passions: working with people, and working alongside animals – in this case, dogs.
With her family of ex-homeless dogs, she created the K9 Project, a non-profit organisation that has helped hundreds of children, teenagers, and adults make changes and achieve their full potential. The K9 Project is unique in its innovative, creative and person-centred approach.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
