Chippewa Valley Book Festival: "The Education of Will" -Healing a Dog, Facing My Fears, Reclaiming My Life

This event is co-sponsored by the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library.

Patricia McConnell, former co-host of WPR’s Calling All Pets, will share the true story of her beloved border collie, Willie, and how helping him overcome his issues led to her finding resolution to her own traumas.

PATRICIA McCONNELL, PhD, CAAB, is an ethologist who has consulted with pet owners for over twenty five years. She taught "The Biology and Philosophy of Human/Animal Relationships” at the UW–Madison for over two decades and speaks around the world about canine behavior and training. Dr. McConnell is the author of thirteen books on animal training and behavior, as well as her newest book, The Education of Will: Healing a Dog, Facing My Fears, Reclaiming My Life, a memoir about healing from trauma in both people and dogs. Patricia and her husband live with their working border collies Willie and Maggie, and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Tootsie, along with a very spoiled flock of sheep.  |
