"Family Friendly Dog Training is a hit! Each chapter provides humane, fun-filled easily implemented exercises for owners seeking a well-behaved family pet. It has become the primary textbook for all of our Family Dog Classes." --Linda Campbell, RVT, CPDT Director of Programs Humane Society of Missouri
"Practical knowledge, presented in a friendly, down to earth style. I heartily recommend it." --Trish King, author of Parenting Your Dog
We have had overwhelmingly positive feedback to Patricia's books here in Germany. Finally, someone knows how to write about behavior AND training in a very enlightening way. Trisha holds up a mirror to show us our behavior around dogs - and makes us laugh with the discoveries we make about ourselves. One of the reasons for her success is that she never comes across as lecturing with a wagging finger. She likes humans as much as she loves dogs which is expressed clearly in her writing." ---Gisela Rau, Kynos Publishing
"The Puppy Primer and Family Friendly Dog Training books are great! They are informative and enjoyable reads, and we recommend them during all new puppy and new dog visits." --Vicki, Vet Tech, Spring Green Animal Hospital, Spring Green, WI

Patricia McConnell has been the most influential mentor in my career. I have learned so much through her books, videos and seminars, and have read her book "The Other End of the Leash" three times.
The book gives you an effective, realistic six week lesson plan and timeline, and is behaviorally solid (unlike the theories and methods of some currently trendy TV trainers).
