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 -- including work with children with autism

Learn why pet owners rave, "This book changed our lives!" and how these pioneering techniques can work for you too.
