Don't Shoot the Dog - The New Art of Teaching and Training

by Karen Pryor

Karen Pryor is famous as an early dolphin trainer. In this book she outlines 8 methods for putting an end to all kinds of undesirable behavior without yelling, threats, force, punishment, guilt trips - or shooting the dog! Her methods for shaping behaviour can be applied in a whole range of scenarios; how to combat your own addictions to alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, overeating or whatever; how to deal with such difficult problems as a moody spouse, an impossible teen, a sloppy roommate or an aged parent; PLUS housetraining the dog, improving your tennis game, keeping the cat off the table, and much, much more!

Whatever the task, whether keeping a four-year-old quiet in public, housebreaking a puppy, coaching a team, or memorizing a poem, it will go faster, better, and be more fun if you know how to use reinforcement. -- Karen Pryor
