Excel-erated Learning: Explaining in plain English how dogs learn and how best to teach them

by Pamela J Reid

Here's a book that explains animal learning in a way that is easy to understood and entertaining. With the freedom of understanding 'how your dog learns' comes the ability to make the process easy, efficient and enjoyable for your dog. You'll be in a position to excel-erate your dog's learning! Agility enthusiast, obedience competitor and psychologist Dr. Pamela Reid introduces you to cutting-edge scientific techniques in dog training including, autoshaping retrieval (i.e., letting the dog train itself), and 'errorless discrimination learning' for teaching scent articles and directed jumping. The combination of a relaxed writing style and numerous examples that relate to dog training makes learning theory actually fun to learn.

This book does assume a level of familiarity with obedience, agility and flyball exercises.
