This is a bit longer read than most of her other books. However, if you have the time and would like to understand how to better communicate with your dog, this is one of the best books you will find. No, I don't get any commissions from Patricia McConnell, but I am a huge fan of hers! She is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, which means she has a Ph.D in animal behavior, so she really knows her stuff. This is probably my favorite book – I highly recommend it!
