Karen Pryor introduced the world to clicker training in her groundbreaking bestseller "Don't Shoot the Dog!"
Now, after thirty years of training creatures both tame and wild, Pryor presents the sum total of what she knows about teaching animals and what they in turn have taught her. This book is written in clear, accessible language with endless stories about some of her more entertaining moments teaching everything from wolves to rhinoceros, ponies to birds.
Throughout the book, Pryor provides references to a dedicated website where readers can see clicker training pictures, video clips, live links, and downloadable PDFs illustrating the training sessions and points of interest in each chapter.
Practical and engrossing, Pryor explains the science behind her system, how it works and why it works, its applications for teaching humans. Pryor interviewed some of the leading neuroscientists in the US to get to the bottom of why clicker training is so effective.
