The Education of Will
A Mutual Memoir of A Woman and Her DogLarge Print - 2017
Patricia McConnell combines insights into canine behavior -- gained from her work with aggressive and fearful dogs -- with stories of her own dogs and their life on the farm. Now, she reveals that it wasn't just the dogs who had serious problems. For decades Dr. McConnell secretly grappled with her own guilt and fear, which were rooted in the harrowing traumas of her youth. Patricia is forced to face her past by her love for a young Border Collie named Will, whose frequent, unpredictable outbreaks of fear and fury shake Patricia to her core. In order to save Will from this dangerous behavior, she must find her own will to heal, and along the way learn that will power by itself is not enough. Interweaving stories of her clients' dogs with tales of her deepening bond with Will, Patricia recounts her fight to reclaim her life.
