Take a walk on the flipside with *The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs*. A revolutionary, new perspective on relationships with dogs, this book focuses on the human behavior in this dynamic pairing—instead of the other way around. An applied animal behaviorist and experienced dog trainer, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around dogs, how they might interpret that behavior, and how to interact with dogs in a way that brings out their very best.rnrnBecause ultimately, humans and dogs are still two entirely different species, each shaped by individual evolutionary heritage—quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are candids (like wolves and foxes). Since both speak in a different native tongue, much gets lost in translation. Once you start to think about your own behavior from the viewpoint of your dog, you’ll understand much of what appears to be disobedience is simply miscommunication. This book teaches how to use your voice; why “getting dominance” over your dog is a bad idea; why “rough and tumble” play can lead to trouble and how to play; and how dogs and humans share personality types. Striving to help you make the most of your life with your dog, the author combines wonderful true stories with scientific perspective in her own insightful, compelling style.
