Description

The Other End of the Leash shares a revolutionary new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs. An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in our four-legged friends.

After all, although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, each shaped by our individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (like wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation.

The Other End of the Leash demonstrates how even the slightest changes in your voice and the way you stand can help your dog understand what you want. Once you start to think about your own behavior from the perspective of your dog, you'll understand why much of what appears to be doggy disobedience is simply a case of miscommunication. Inside you will learn:

  • How to use your voice so that your dog is more likely to do what you ask
  • Why "getting dominance" over your dog is a bad idea
  • Why "rough and tumble primate play" can lead to trouble - and how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of trouble
  • How dogs and humans share personality types - and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than "alpha-wannabes!"

In her own insightful, compelling style, Patricia McConnell combines wonderful true stories about people and dogs with a new, accessible scientific perspective on how they should behave around each other. This is a book that strives to help you make the most of life with your dog, and to prevent problems that might arise in that most rewarding of relationships.

awesome information

great information in a relatable manner by comparing hope humans expect a dog to do vs. what they're capable of

A MUST READ for anyone who has or wants a dog!

Also a "Should Read" for anyone who has had a dog or loves dogs! This is by far the BEST book about dog friends and companions that I have found--ever. Not only is the writing conversational and the examples clear, they cover every possible situation a dog owner might encounter w/excellent suggestions on how to remedy the problem. The performance was equally outstanding, as Ellen Archer came across so convincingly, I had to check to see that it was not the author herself reading the story. In every aspect, this book was a real winner in my estimation. Instructive, educational and thoroughly entertaining as well. So much so, that I am contemplating buying the hard copy as a reference source. I no longer have a dog, but am planning on eventually getting another when our days of long distance travel have been satisfied.

The other end of the leash

The narration is superb and the information visa vi style of written word, and thourough illustrative treatment of important literature; was; imho ... Left nothing lacking.
If you train, or are part of a handling team or a compassionate,cerebral pet owner this book will fulfill that craving to understand modern techniques and how you can use them to develope that dream relationship across species that I as therapy dog enthusiast, really craved.

A look at how your dog looks at life

If you could sum up The Other End of the Leash in three words, what would they be?

As said many times, not a training book, but a good book to stop and take a look at your dogs probable thinking patterns, which affects training and so much more. I have a border collie, with a bit of Pit in her heritage. This book helped me understand her better, and opened up new ideas to getting through to her mood changes from loving to somewhat mean and very protective. We are breaking through some new barriers, I had began to give up on.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Other End of the Leash?

The authors moments with her sheep dog, turned best friend.

Have you listened to any of Ellen Archer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Probably not, but it did keep me coming back.

Any additional comments?

A bit wordy, and definitely not a training book per say, but should be a first book for all who want to train. I have a rescue who we have reason to believe was abused. Our first trainer was very loving, and our puppy cared very much for her and learned quickly. When she joined the police K-9 the new trainer trained with rough, jerks and pulls. Our dog resisted this training. The book goes into this type of activity, and the fact that earning the dogs love is first and most important. Makes me feel better about the fact that I was not being more forceful breaking our dog from her growls and snaps. Not raising my voice, and staying calm has moved us forward in our goals. The book did not tell me what to do, but showed me the mental approach, and what my dog was thinking. Fantastic results.

Not as helpful as I hoped

Some decent individual points about how to use body language to communicate better with dogs, but the great majority of the book was bloated with personal anecdotes about how much the author loves her dogs.

I was disappointed as there was very little info on how to correct a dogs behavior or thoughts on overall training methodology.

Could be great with a little less about the author

Other reviewer said this is well, the author almost seems to be defending her credibility to write this book. So much of the book was useful, but it took a very strong stomach keep hearing about her academic proficiency. It would do her well to do a rewrite and take most of that out, it belongs on the jacket of the book
