Product description

Review

“Good reading for dog lovers and an immensely useful manual for dog owners.”The Washington Post

“Vivid anecdotes and keen insights . . . a wonderful book . . . [that] exudes wisdom and passion throughout.”Bark magazine

“Excellent . . . Warm and informative, The Other End of the Leash teaches us to bridge some differences and to honor others.”Dog Fancy

“McConnell explores dog-human communication with down-to-earth science and entertaining anecdotes. . . . Whether you have a dog with a behavioral problem or you just like dog stories, this book is a milestone in the field and a great read.”Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Patricia McConnell understands the behavior of dogs and their owners as Jane Goodall understands chimpanzees. . . . Well written, insightful, and often moving . . . A must-read for everyone who holds one end of a leash.”—Charles T. Snowdon, Ph.D. Former President, Animal Behavior Society

“McConnell’s book offers unique insights into canine logic. Even humans—and this is her greatest achievement—start to make some sense here.”Savannah News

her End of the Leash shares a revolutionary, new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs.

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
