 Author: Jody Schwallier-Otwell

Love comes on a Leash is Jody's big book debut. What began as an impromptu idea while working with her own registered therapy dog, Cooper, two years ago, has blossomed into this delightfully fun and educational children's book.  

Along with her wonderful friend and therapy buddy, Lynn Lowry, Jody spent several months following therapy teams in Alabama in order to capture moments from actual therapy visits to share in her book.  But, in order to gain more insight and be more inclusive of all the different breeds and other kinds of animals working in therapy today, she expanded her search to include therapy organizations from all over the country.  

‚ÄčThe book is based upon guidelines from Jody and Lynn's own foray into animal-assisted therapy as taught by the Pet Partners Organization.
