The Education of Will


Join us at the Baraboo Public Library at 6:30 PM on Thursday, January 18 as internationally acclaimed animal behaviorist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells about the inspiration for her latest book, The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and her Dog.

When McConnell adopted a Border Collie puppy, Will, he seemed to have great potential as a pet and a working dog on her farm, until he exhibited fearful and aggressive behavior that made her doubt her ability to help him reach his full potential. As she grappled with finding the key to shaping his behavior into that of a friendly and useful companion, she found her own past traumas causing greater and more intrusive disturbances in her daily life. Through working to understand her own trauma, she gained greater insight into Will’s behavior, and discovered a path to heal them both.

Following her presentation, Dr. McConnell will be on hand to sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase.
