Format: Paperback
I've read several different dog training and behavior books, and Patricia McConnell is one of the best... and one of the funniest. Everything in this pamphlet is good advice, and good things to be reminded of. We have a problem in our household with different "standards" for our dog, so I will leave this book around the house hoping my DH reads it. It is short, so he might, and if he tries some of the suggestions it would solve many problems. Pushy begging, refusals to give back stolen objects, you get the idea -- involving the dog and DH.
So yes, this book is an excellent resource for new dog owners or dog owners that are having problems. It is a short read, so it is good for experienced owners to look at to. I earmarked a few passages to remind myself to work on those things with the dog myself.
However, this is not The Other End of the Leash. There isn't anything new or deeply in depth in this pamphlet, and having read other of McConnell's writing, I was hoping it would have some new insights. So I was a little disappointed.
But the trainer's assistant in me is delighted that there is a brief and clear pamphlet with a lot of good advice in it that I could hand to a student and expect them to read it, understand it, and learn gentle things they can do to improve their relationship with their dog from it. McConnell clearly wrote this because she found that many of her human clients (she is a behavioral consultant and trainer) needed this information, and wouldn't it be nice if she could hand them a pamphlet so they could easily remember what she explained to them. And yes, the information in this pamphlet could certainly help reduce the number of dogs visiting the behaviorist or the humane society. So, brava on that score.

This is the real pack you want to create - a family. Great book by a fantastic lady. No ridiculous statements about dominating your dog or using harsh tools to train.

McConnell's writing is clear and her results are good. What more could you ask? The book is small and good... doesn't have to be long to be good.

$10 for a 12 page pamphlet? I was very disappointed when I recieved this. This item is listed under "books", though I guess if it were a children's book it would be almost long enough. The content is available on 100 different web sites for free.

Patricia McConnell has solid ideas and techniques here. Great base knowledge for anyone with a dog or for people working in veterinary clinics or as trainers.
