The Learning Center

We gathered and organized previously published work by Patricia to make it easily available to you and can be printed off for your use. Enjoy! Books and booklets should not be photocopied. We appreciate your respecting the copyright laws.

Several of Patricia’s books are tailor made to give structure to puppy and dog training classes. There is special pricing available to dog trainers who sign up with McConnell Publishing as a “Wholesaler” or you can enjoy discounted prices when you buy in bulk (over ten copies per book title.) Book content should not be photocopied and distributed in training classes as that is a violation of the copyright without written permission from Patricia.
