      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 twenty years 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.
