Patricia McConnell? She is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist. You might think she'd use lots of fancy words to tell people what she does, but her books are very readable and easily understood. She teaches about interactions between dogs and dogs, and dogs and their people. I read, loved, and learned a lot from her book, The Other End of the Leash. I was thrilled to learn that she has a blog, The Other End of the Leash. It, too, is very readable - actually a joy to read - even to the non-scientific among us.
At her blog I learned that she is presenting an ASPCA webinar on December 6. (For those who don't know, a webinar is an online seminar. You register to attend, then receive a link to the webinar website. You're able to listen (and possibly watch) and ask questions (sometimes online or sometimes via a phone call).) This particular webinar is for animal welfare professionals, volunteers, and foster parents.
I volunteer with ATRA and I hope to be able to listen to the webinar. I'm all for anything that helps me improve Hannah's life and my relationship for her. It should be interesting and fun.
Registration for the webinar is not yet open but I'm sure it will be soon.
