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 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
