Author and veterinarian Annie Bowes discovered at a young age that having a dog was invaluable. From encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle to providing unmatched emotional and social support, a dog is the perfect companion for anyone, but especially those with autism. Bowes discusses the countless ways the understanding, acceptance, and boundless love of a dog benefits everyone-particularly those on the spectrum.

Through many years of working with dogs in her practice, she grew interested in how canine companionship helps people with Autism. Dogs and Autism is a result of her many years of research and first-hand experience understanding the benefits of dogs as an alternative treatment to those on the autism spectrum.
