    Default Don't Shoot the Dog by Karen Pryor

    My favorite book on training, it covers clicker training and the theory behind positive reinforcement training.


    It's not even about dogs but useful for interaction with any creature including humans. Fascinating stuff.

    Sounds fascinating, I think that I will try and pick up a copy of it for myself.

    The old adage that you can catch more flies with honey than you can with **** has been around for a very long time. There is a reason for this. It's because when you reward someone for doing the right thing, they work harder to do it than if you punish them for doing the wrong thing. They are more motivated by reward than by fear. I think that these books hammer this home, especially as it relates to working with dogs and other animals and people.
