This book was very inspirational. I never realized how much dogs can change peoples lives. When you see dogs on the street or in a store for sale, you never think about how they could change an old person or any person going through a struggles life. You usually think about petting them and how adorable they are. David shows that dogs can brighten anybody's day just by being present in a room. That is all it takes really to make someone very happy. No matter what age or gender, dogs can change ...more

Funny, quirky, informative: Caution, get out the tissues these stories may bring a few tears to your eyes.

If you’re like me and love to watch the Westminster Dog Show and National Dog Show every year, then you have to get a copy of this book by David Frei, the 2 shows MC. The stories he shares of therapy dogs visiting children with cancer, seniors and soldiers in rehabilitation centers are journeys of the heart.

Angel on a Leash--Therapy Dogs and the Lives They Touch by David Frei is a wonderful book about therapy dogs and David's experiences with his.

It was an interesting book, but not my favorite at first I was intrigued but then it got kind of boring to read. I like the idea but it talked way to much about the dogs and not about the people they helped. I rather read about people then dogs, but overall it was a good book. Took me a while to get through it though because it was getting boring near the end. the pictures in the middle of the book were great though.

Even though my dogs are mixed breed rescue dogs, I enjoy watching dog shows occasionally and one of the reasons is David Frei, who is one of the presenters for those I watch. I like him and I like this very personal memoir of his dogs and their work as therapy dogs. My only complaint about this book is that it's too short...which is perhaps the best criticism one can give a book. ;-)
