The Second-Chance Dog: A Love Story by Jon Katz

The Second-Chance Dog is a memoir about a man who finds love with a woman and her angry dog. He recounts the tale of their respective courtship and rehabilitation. It was a bit repetitive at times and could have used the help of a thesaurus ("disintegrating" is one of a few words that was overused).

I liked reading how he used exercise (long walks in the woods), discipline (a firm voice while teaching obedience), and reward (beef jerky) kind of like Cesar Milan to help his girlfriend's dog but it wasn't my most favorite dog book.
