Summary: 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 secr

  • 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
