  • It's so easy
I have read "For the Love of a Dog" several times, and I will surely read it many more. It is one of those rare books that offers insight in rich layers that seem to have more to offer with every encounter. I have built a career learning about and living with dogs, and helping my clients to understand and live with them, too. Trisha McConnell has helped me immensely in both exploring and marveling in the fascinating world of canine behavior and the complex emotional capacity that give dogs their unique place in the world. Read this book again and again - you and your dog will be immeasurably better off for it!

We have all seen the faces of the dogs we live with and love every day and wondered what they were thinking or how they were feeling. Now you can really understand them better by reading this well written book. Patricia McConnell not only tells you about the different looks your dog can show, she has photos that absolutely let's you see what your dog is trying to tell you.

I think we all know the face of a dog that is ready to attack but can you tell the difference in one that is mad or scared. The pictures in this book really show the difference. Do you know what a happy or sad dog looks like well again these pictures show you how to see your dog in a new way. Wouldn't it be great if we could understand our animals better? This book is really worth reading if that is something you want to do.

I know after reading this book I am more concerned about how I look to my dog. As Miss McConnell speaks about how our dogs spend a great amount of time watching us because they are better students of reading expressions on faces than we will ever be.

I am working on training a young dog and have had trouble with recall or come sometime. Miss McConnell, said that facing a dog straight on is a signal in the dog society to stand still and for us to turn slightly side way and to smile or open mouth slightly and call them. WOW what a difference. The dog bounded to me every time I did this.

There a more hints on how to understand your dog and a great story of McConnell's life on her sheep ranch and in her practice that make this an interesting read.

I had to watch the Tawzer video where Pat talks about this book. It really helped clear up,the "fear as aggression" part of the book. Basically she explains that a dog who is fearful or shy can respond with "defensive aggression" and I think I had trouble understanding it at first. Do,dogs have emotions. Dog owners say yes, canine research says results are mixed. Pat McDonnell is in the yes camp she explains why.

Disclaimer: I have watched and read EVERYTHING that she has written and all of her videos. She is my all time favorite ethnologist. I could watch or read her work over and over again and learn something new every time. This book is filled,with information. I have the Audible version, this ebook, and rented the video from Tawzer Dog. It is packed with information and not a light read.

Four stars because parts are hard to understand at first.

Reading Patricia McConnell is just like hearing her live. Her syndicated radio show, Calling All Pets, originated in my home state of Wisconsin and I was a faithful listener, and Wisconsin Public Radio contributor, for much of my adult life.

This woman is so wise in the ways of dogs. Without becoming anthropomorphic (you'll get the reference shortly after you start reading), McConnell shows and tells you what facial and body expressions different dogs are telegraphing and what these signs usually mean they will do next.

Every dog lover needs to read this book.

I have listened to the Audible version a few times. It's a wonderful book. Now I am buying a hard copy so I can easily refer back to certain chapters and look at the illustrations. I am a huge fan of this author. This book is for people who really want to understand dogs.

I have read, only partially, another book on the subject and given up as details were confusing and not clearly presented. Patricia McConnell presents the detailed information very clearly and very readably. I consider this a must read for dog lovers and wish it were required reading for many people who inadvertantly offend dogs then view the dog as bad or unfriendly. I have to have a highlighter in hand and a quiet place to read this because it deserves undivided attention. I'm sure I'll go back to it again and again as I witness behaviors and further digest the information. I have only a layperson's experience in rescue (all positive) and think anyone involved in rescue would benefit from this book and enjoy reading it. Again, I find the information detailed very clearly and the book very readable. It does not bog down in unnecessary "side trips" and anecdotes are used effectively and not over used. I look forward to reading other books from this author now.

GREAT. Simply written for the novice and the well informed and still learning. The books and authors acknowledged are now on my list of books to add to my doggie brain psychology library and my regular learning the mysteries of the Brain part of my library along with my dog training books of which I have over one hundred to date and growing. Its always been very interesting to me that ,even if I dont care for the training method of the book Im reading, there is ALWAYS something to be learned or relearned. Ive not come across a dog book that has been completely worthless. My first brain book was THE BRAIN HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN. And now Im off and running with this GREAT GREAT dual purpose book. HOW PERFECT. MY DEEPEST THANKS to MS. McConnell
