The Holistic Dog: Inside The Canine Mind, Body, Spirit, Space

benko-back-flap-photoAfter my book , The Holistic Home: Feng Shui for Mind, Body, Spirit, Space came out, I was having a conversation with photographer Susan Fisher who shot the cover photo, and we thought it would be fun to do a book together. We quickly started talking about dogs in their spaces and before we knew it, The Holistic Dog: Inside The Canine Mind Body Spirit and Space was born. My inspiration for this project was my Irish Terrier, my sweet boy, Yogi.  The book comes out August 1st, 2017, just in time for National Dog Month! Here is what to expect in the book:


The first half of the book features 108 dogs beautifully photographed in the spaces they love to be in, along with their inspiring, funny, informative, and touching dog stories. The second half of the book, I interviewed various canine experts such holistic veterinarians, behaviorists, trainers, a dog walker and pet psychic and much more. Readers will gain helpful tips and insights into holistic pet care and learn how to implement them with their own dogs. In writing this book, I learned so much about dogs – from fun facts like they really can laugh (its a sound similar to panting) to the more serious,  how over vaccinating can be extremely problematic to dogs.

By delving into dogs’ worlds holistically through their mind, body, spirit, and space, The Holistic Dog delivers a thorough understanding of our canine friends. The mind portion covers their reasoning, habits, training and personalities. The body addresses their breed, wellness, nutrition, and physical characteristics. Spirit represents the dogs’ disposition, intuitive connection, and the many ways they enhance the home atmosphere. Space captures the dogs’ connection to the beauty of their unique environments they call home.

Please be sure to look for it everywhere books are sold in August, or pre-order it here on Amazon or buy a signed copy here The Holistic Home Company. For more information, please go to

Wishing you and your dog, all the best in Mind, Body, Spirit and Space.
