Sunday, February 7: "Renting with Rex" wins another Honorable Mention, also in the "How To" category for the Los Angeles Book Festival.
"Renting with Rex” by Jackie Phillips is an informative book about how to increase your chances of being able to rent and own a pet at the same time. The assumption is that many landlords will not rent to people with animals. Ms. Phillips educates the readers about how to make it more likely for a dog owner (specifically) to be able to successfully rent.
The book is divided into thirteen chapters, with such topics as 'Moving with Your Dog,' 'Preventing Undesirable Behaviors,' and 'Renting an Apartment as a Pet Owner.' In addition to information on renting more successfully while owning a pet, Ms. Phillips also makes many positive recommendations for how to make sure the dog gets enough exercise, how to crate train a dog, what kinds of collars to use, and what toys are most effective for different sizes of dogs. She stresses good animal health by promoting veterinarian visits. The benefits of spaying or neutering your pet are also described.
It is obvious that Ms. Phillips loves dogs. She has an extensive resume of working with animals and has seemingly devoted her life to protecting dogs and ensuring that they find good homes. She seeks to give valuable advice. I appreciate her advice and important information."

"I have been looking for this book ever since seeing a friend's copy. This book is full of common-sense advice intermingled with a well-thought out plan for preventing issues in a rental situation. Now that I've found this, I'm stocking up for gifts for some of my other friends, both renters and non-renters alike. There is enough good advice here for home owners to make it worth the read no matter your living situation."
My friend, Susan Pipes, a fellow animal communicator, has posted a review of my book on her blog.
Please take a few minutes to take a look at her beautiful site. Here is a summary of her talents:
"Today I enjoy a successful animal communication business helping animals and the people that love them all over the globe. I offer personal aromatherapy consultations and remedies, long distance reiki, Tr. Chinese Medicine insights and offer hope for better relationships with animals and their people. I hope that you can take the time to learn about your own intuition and how it can help with your animal friends and other relationships. The animals like to communicate with us and are happy to share their point of view."
