Our Dogs Deserve the Best We Have to Offer.  Let's Give It to Them.  
Become your dog's hero the Bond-Based Way.

What is Bond-Based?
Bond-Based is an entirely new way of living with and loving dogs. While dog training uses coercion to force dogs to comply with cues and commands, Bond-Based uses a strong social connection to foster cooperation. Dogs are thinking, feeling beings capable of far more than merely being conditioned to respond to stimuli.

       COOPERATION NOT COERCION...That's the Bond-Based Way.

Bond-Based is Inside Out
When you make dogs DO something, you take away their ability to choose causing them to FEEL powerless and helpless. This is an Outside In (Body Mind) approach. This is dog training.

When you make dogs FEEL something, they have the power to DO what they choose. This is an Inside Out (Mind Body) approach.

Dogs who have trust in you FEEL secure in their relationship with you.

Dogs who have trust in themselves FEEL confident.

Dogs are highly social animals who want to be accepted by their teammates, hence their need to feel secure in their relationships, and valuable to their team, hence their need to feel confident in their own abilities.

Dogs who FEEL secure and confident CHOOSE to cooperate; to do the ‘right’ thing by team and teammates.  This is Bond-Based.

Who Developed Bond-Based?
The Bond-Based Approach was developed by Jennifer Arnold.  Jennifer is also the Founder and Executive Director of Canine Assistants located in Milton, Georgia. Founded in 1991, Canine Assistants is a non-profit organization that teaches service dogs to assist children and adults who have physical disabilities or other special needs. Jennifer first recognized the need for this program when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age sixteen. For the past twenty-six years, Jennifer has been working to enhance her knowledge of the extraordinary relationship between people and dogs and how they could best live and work with one another. It was her realization that mutual trust is the key to a mutually beneficial relationship that lead her to develop the Bond-Based Approach.

Jennifer is the New York Times best selling author of Through a Dog’s Eyes, In a Dog’s Heart, and Love is All You Need by PenguinRandomHouse. Through a Dog's Eyes was also the subject of a PBS documentary. Jennifer has been featured by The New York Times, London Times, People Magazine, NBC Nightly News, CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, and the Today Show among others.  She and her husband, Kent Bruner, DVM, their son, Chase, and numerous four-legged children live on a farm in Milton, Georgia.
