The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs (Paperback)
The Other End of the Leash shares a revolutionary, new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing onour behavior in comparison with that of dogs. An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years experienc...
From the Hardcover edition.
After all, although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, each shaped by our individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (like wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation.
The Other End of the Leash demonstrates how even the slightest changes in your voice and the way you stand can help your dog understand what you want. Once you start to think about your own behavior from the perspective of your dog, youll understand why much of what appears to be doggy-disobedience is simply a case of miscommunication. Inside you will learn
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 troubleand how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of trouble.
How dogs and humans share personality typesand why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than alphawannabees!
In her own insightful, compelling style, Patricia McConnell combines wonderful true stories about people and dogs with a new, accessible scientific perspective on how they should behave around each other. This is a book that strives to help you make the most of life with your dog, and to prevent problems that might arise in that most rewarding of relationships.
