Today we are joined by Harper West  M.A. author of Pack Leader Psychology. Part self-help book and part deeply personal memoir, this book reveals her personal story of how she learned to become a pack leader to her dog and how those same ideas completely transformed her personality and improved her relationships with people.

Harper realized that this simple, but powerful, universal idea of Pack Leader Psychology could help others to:
- gain confidence
- claim respect
- become better parents and partners
- live a happier, more authentic, life
- and maybe even become a pack leader of people!

“Pack Leader Psychology” recounts the lessons Harper learned while becoming a pack leader to her dog, Reilly, that helped transform her from a submissive, abused wife into a calm, confident, independent and assertive human pack leader.

Harper discovered eye-opening parallels between Cesar Millan’s “Dog Whisperer” dog training concepts and human behavior. She saw that just as dogs develop anxieties and misbehaviors when they lack pack leaders, so do humans. Just as dogs, when threatened and fearful, react with fight-or-flight and dominance and submission in the pack hierarchy, so do humans. Because the explanations are rooted in elemental concepts that will resonate with readers, the content forms an easily understood model for human relationships.

The exciting thing is that these concepts offer simple, yet powerful explanations about human behavior that readers can immediately apply to all relationships in their lives by helping them intuitively understand why they behave as they do, become more emotionally healthy, and identify and predict the behaviors of others.
