For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend, May 15 2011
This is a wonderful book , I read it while in the sauna. It is replete with clear advice and light humour from a very well experienced animal behaviourist. Drawing on her own experiences as an educator and scientist,
Ms. McConnell enlightens us everyday dog owners towards a better understanding into the reasons why our dogs do as they do, even when we would rather they not! From there, she teaches us how to find the why and better manage the problem(s). I especially enjoy the many descriptive references to body language as barometers to our dogs' emotions. As a dog owner of four adult dogs, I am always looking for a good read on this subject. Without any hesitation, this is a book I would suggest to any interested dog owner!
