Publisher's Summary

This book explores the fascinating science of operant conditioning, where science and dog training meet. How Dogs Learn discusses the basic principles of behavior and how they can be used to teach your dog new skills, diagnose problems, and eliminate unwanted behaviors. It's for anyone who wants to better understand the learning process in dogs. Every concept is laid out clearly and precisely, and its relevance to your dog and how you train is explained.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Very good reference book!"

    It was so useful I've ordered the hard copy to keep as a reference. As a trainer I found it very helpful.

    "Written by Captain Obvious..."

    This book is basically a compilation of all academic terms for the common sense and general knowledge subjects about dogs. I don't think anybody out there needs or wants to know these jargon soup but rather learn the actual way dogs learn. what a waste of time :/
