Behavior Talk 046: Patricia McConnell

Behavior Talk show

Summary: Part of our series of interviews from the 2010 Association of Pet Dog Trainers conference in Atlanta, Georgia, this episode features a conversation with Patricia McConnell.  Dr. McConnell led a sumposium on "A Dog's Mind - Thoughts and Emotions" and also gave a talk entitled "Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking? An introduction to the Central Questions in Cognition and Emotion in Dog Behavior."   We talked about the ways dogs see their world, how that's different from the way we look at things, and why that matters.  And we talk about understanding these differences and incorporating them into your practice to make you a more compasionate and effective trainer.
