The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs

The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs - Patricia Mcconnell

The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs


Learn to communicate with your dog--using their language

"Good reading for dog lovers and an immensely useful manual for dog owners."--The Washington Post

An Applied Animal Behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years' experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell reveals a revolutionary new perspective on our relationship with dogs--sharing insights on how "man's best friend" might interpret our behavior, as well as essential advice on how to interact with our four-legged friends in ways that bring out the best in them.

After all, humans and dogs are two entirely different species, each shaped by its individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (as are wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation. This marvelous guide demonstrates how even the slightest changes in our voices and in the ways we stand can help dogs understand what we want. Inside you will discover:

- How you can get your dog to come when called by acting less like a primate and more like a dog
- Why the advice to "get dominance" over your dog can cause problems
- Why "rough and tumble primate play" can lead to trouble--and how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of mischief
- How dogs and humans share personality types--and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than "alpha wanna-bes "

Fascinating, insightful, and compelling, The Other End of the Leash is a book that strives to help you connect with your dog in a completely new way--so as to enrich that most rewarding of relationships.
