We are very pleased to have The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and a Dog by Patricia McConnell now available on Dogwise.com for $19.95 - 23% off the cover price of $26. Any new book by Trish is big news, of course, but her memoir is especially compelling as it combines insights into both canine and human behavior. We suspect this book will resonate with many dog trainers who have discovered that their work with troubled dogs has helped them gain insights into their own lives. Her inspiring story reminds us that, while trauma changes our brains and the past casts a long shadow, healing is possible - for both people and dogs. Bonus! Order now through Dogwise and get a signed edition!!
For decades Trish secretly grappled with her own fears, which were rooted in three harrowing traumas of her youth. She is forced to face her past, and determined to heal, when her love for a troubled Border Collie (Will) with frequent, unpredictable outbreaks of fear and fury shake her to her core. You will learn that while trauma changes our brains and the past casts a long shadow, healing, for both people and dogs, is possible through hard work, compassion, and mutual devotion.
If for some reason you are not familiar with Trish's other books, and you want to better understand canine behavior and the human-animal bond, be sure to read The Other End of the Leash, For the Love of a Dog, and Tales of Two Species. The dogs you train will thank you for reading them!
