Read in April, 2011

I was fascinated by this book. I heard Patricia McConnell talking on the radio about the importance of dog owner's posture and facial cues when dogs are checking each other out at the dog park and decided I wanted to learn more. We learned invaluable basic dog training in Patricia's puppy training classes but now I am enjoying studying my husky's facial expressions and observing the goings on at the dog park with new eyes.

I also learned to teach our 7 year old husky some new tricks, exercise of his mind is as important as those dog park runs.

Warning: Patricia's description of the pain and sorrow she felt when her dear dog Luke died will bring back those days of sorrow that many dog owners have lived through when their best friend passed away.
