Psychology & Personal Development


WHAT KIND OF DOG ARE YOU?  It’s a new system for personal and professional development with the broad appeal of Myers-Briggs and astrology, the support of serious research on psychology, and an appeal to millions of dog owners and dog lovers worldwide. It’s based on a new workshop/seminar program, and the book will shortly be published by a major publisher in Japan. World English and other translation rights are still available.

In a nutshell, the book is a guide to understanding yourself and others, improving relationships, and achieving greater everyday success by the types of dogs you each most like and least like. The book also offers ways to work with different types of dogs to help make decisions, solve problems, get a job, and more. It’s a highly promotable book, and the workshop program has been featured on TV interview shows and in several newspapers. A TV reality show based on the book is in development.
