Author(s): McConnell Patricia

Home & Pets

Why does your dog sometimes do exactly the opposite of what you want? Although humans and dogs share a unique bond, the fact is that we are two entirely different species. And because we each speak a different ‘language’, a lot can get lost in the translation. In THE OTHER END OF THE LEASH, expert animal behaviourist and owner of four dogs Patricia McConnell shows you how to bring out the best in your best friend by helping you speak the same language. Even the slightest change in your voice and the way you stand can help your dog understand what you want. Once you start to think about your own behaviour from the perspective of your dog, you’ll understand why much of what appears to be doggy-disobedience is simply a case of miscommunication. Learn: * How to ‘talk dog’ * How to use your voice so that your dog is more likely to do what you ask * Why ‘getting dominance’ over your dog is a bad idea * 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 or her out of trouble * How dogs and humans share personality types * How dogs greet one another and communicate, * Dog definitions of what’s polite and what's rude Packed with practical advice, the latest scientific discoveries and heartwarming stories of dogs and their owners, THE OTHER END OF THE LEASH will help you and your dog make the most of life together.
