The Other End of the Leash

Fascinating, insightful, and compelling, here is a book that connects you with your dog in a completely new way. One reviewer said: “What you don’t know about your dog could fill a book. It’s called The Other End of the Leash.” Considered a classic in the field, and now translated into 13 languages, this book will:

    •    Revolutionize the way you interact with your dog
    •    Illustrate how members of two different species share so much,
          but often confuse one another
    •    Help you see the world from your dog’s perspective
    •    Explain how to communicate so that your dog understands you
    •    Show why training dogs isn’t always easy for us primates (and
          explains how to fix it!)

Would you like to know the secrets of getting your dog to come when called? (Act less like a primate and more like a dog!) Or how to play with your dog in ways that enrich your relationship rather than harm it? There’s all that and more in The Other End of the Leash, the book that, like no other, translates dog to human and human to dog. You’ll learn why the advice to “get dominance” over your dog isn’t based on canine “pack” behavior at all, how dogs and humans share personality types, and why the individuals of two different species have come to be best friends in the truest sense of the word.

Everyone! There's a reason this book has been translated into 12 languages. The Other End of the Leash is a must read for everyone who loves dogs, and would like to understand them (and themselves) on a entirely new level. Patricia has received emails from around the world thanking her for writing a book that has changed their lives, and that of their dogs, in a wonderful way. Given that Patricia's mission in life is "To improve relationships between people and animals all over the world," guess how happy that makes her!
