Sometimes it takes the convergence of extraordinary circumstances to make us face our own demons. For many years, Dr. Patricia B. McConnell grappled privately with intense fear, shame, anxiety, and guilt.
In her latest book, The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and Her Dog, McConnell takes an unflinching look at her own trauma and how a problem dog helped her grow beyond it, ultimately healing both dog and owner.
Dr. McConnell is a Zoologist and Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist. For more than 25 years she’s specialized in canine aggression, consulting with pet owners on serious animal behavioral problems.
