Better Together

Celebrating Service Dog Teams

Susan Aune



Publication Date: August 16, 2022


Meet ordinary yet remarkable people living extraordinary lives with their service (assistance) dogs. Learn almost everything you ever wanted to know about service dogs from the pros—the people who live with them and love them. In this book you will find a community of people who are as passionate about improving the lives of people with disabilities as they are about loving dogs.


Through their stories and photographs, meet the service dogs with life-saving skills such as detecting low blood sugar, anticipating seizures and guiding those with vision loss. As the dogs open up worlds for their human partners, the team develops uniquely close and trusting bonds as both humans and dogs learn to function outside their usual parameters.


Truly they are better together - after all, lives depend on it!


About the Author

Susan Aune has been interested in photography and dogs since she was a child. However, her photography had time to bloom only since she retired as a public health nurse a few years ago. She is an avid gardener, inside and out, often growing her photography subjects. When she is not tending plants, she can be found horseback riding on a trail or training her two dogs an Italian Greyhound and a Cairn Terrier, in agility and nosework.

Professionally, Susan’s background in psychology, public health nursing, and training people to work with their horses and dogs provided an ideal background for this book. Personally, Susan’s parents provided a lifetime of inspiration through their interests in art and music.

Susan resides in St. Cloud, MN, with her dogs, Cara and Indi.
