Summary
A new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs. Applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer Dr. Patricia McConnell muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in them. Although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, and a lot gets lost in the translation--this is why much of what appears to be disobedience is simply miscommunication. Dr. McConnell teaches 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; how dogs and humans share personality types--and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than "alphas."--Publisher description
Summary
Explores humans' relationships with their canine companions and the mysteries of human-canine communication, provides insights into human and dog interaction, and explains how dog owners can avoid sending conflicting messages to their pets
