A Better Way to Better Behavior

Karen Pryor's clear and entertaining explanation of behavioral training methods made Don't Shoot the Dog a bestselling classic. Now this revised edition presents more of her insights into animal--and human--behavior.

A groundbreaking behavioral scientist and dynamic animal trainer, Karen Pryor is a powerful proponent of the principles and practical uses of positive reinforcement in teaching new behaviors. Here are the secrets of changing behavior in pets, kids--even yourself--without yelling, threats, force, punishment, guilt trips...or shooting the dog:

-The principles of the revolutionary "clicker training" method, which owes its phenomenal success to its immediacy of response--so there is no question what action you are rewarding
-8 methods of ending undesirable habits--from furniture-clawing cats to sloppy roommates
-The 10 laws of "shaping" behavior-for results without strain or pain through "affection training"
-Tips for house-training the dog, improving your tennis game, or dealing with an impossible teen
-Explorations of exciting new uses for reinforcement training

Learn why pet owners rave, "This book changed our lives " and how these pioneering techniques can work for you too.
