We enjoyed reading a review of Reaching the Animal Mind (Karen Pryor's new book) from Diana Geurrero, an expert trainer based in Southern California who has been featured on the Today Show and NPR, among other media outlets. Here's an excerpt from Diana's review:

Lori Stevens, graduate of Karen Pryor Academy, will be appearing on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on Wednesday evening, May 13, 2009. Lori will be included in the "Making a Difference" segment for her work training service dogs for returning vets. Lori's training business, Patriot Paws, trains service dogs to assist disabled American veterans.
Congratulations, Lori! We're thrilled that your important work will reach a nationwide audience. Click!
