5.0 out of 5 stars Training Methods that Work and are Fun for You and Your Dog, November 14, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Power of Positive Dog Training (Howell reference books) (Paperback)
The Power of Positive Dog Training sounds like a book which should have been written by Tony Robbins and advertised on an info-mertial though it is a quality book.

The training methods are based on studies done by behavioral scientist B.F. Skinner. Many college level psychology classes teach this material. It stresses training through operant conditioning which in a nutshell is rewarding good behaviors thereby increasing the likelihood of them being repeated.

There are many references about these principles and training but this book is good because it is geared specifically towards training a dog and maps out a six week program for you to follow.

Even though I believe in the principles I was skeptical that my new puppy would learn the exercises in the book during a short period of time. Much to my surprise I saw results within a day or so. Included in the training plan is a number of progressively harder exercises to teach your dog for each week. A description of exercise, instructions, and training tips are included for each.

I highly recommend this book if you are interested in training a dog through the previously mentioned methods.
