The title of this warm and wonderful book should be ‘Wonder Dogs and Wonder Woman’. For Maureen Maurer is every bit as extraordinary as the dogs she loves and trains.

Wonder Dogs will win your heart over! This book gave me a fresh perspective on hardships and how even the most terrible circumstances can be redeemed and turned into joy. Maureen truly has such a gift of training dogs, but also of helping and comforting those that have suffered great loss, and giving them hope again. This book will do just that for you- give you hope again, in whatever you may be walking through right now.
