Description

This book explores the fascinating science of operant conditioning, where science and dog training meet. How Dogs Learn discusses the basic principles of behavior and how they can be used to teach your dog new skills, diagnose problems, and eliminate unwanted behaviors. It's for anyone who wants to better understand the learning process in dogs. Every concept is laid out clearly and precisely, and its relevance to your dog and how you train is explained.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book<br /><br />

Love this book. Have read and/or listened to it more than once, always learn something new. The narrator was easy to understand.

The narration is awful!

I couldn't get through the first chapter because the narration is so poor. I plan to buy a hard copy and read that way.

Very good reference book!

It was so useful I've ordered the hard copy to keep as a reference. As a trainer I found it very helpful.

Written by Captain Obvious...

This book is basically a compilation of all academic terms for the common sense and general knowledge subjects about dogs. I don't think anybody out there needs or wants to know these jargon soup but rather learn the actual way dogs learn. what a waste of time :/

Stuttering

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I'd change the narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What didn’t you like about Christopher Solimene’s performance?

The narrator stammers, as though he has trouble pronouncing the words. It's almost like he hadn't read the work before he decided toi record. A little distracting.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

N/A

Any additional comments?

Overall an informative book.

Should be Titled "Technical Terms of Dog Training"

This book starts out with a long history of dog training and some implied "what not to do". The tone sounds as if it is written for people who already know what not to do. I assume the author was trying to give a history of how we got where we are, or trying to give credit. Next, it just starts listing technical terms of Dog Training. I have been listening for hours and I am about to give up, I have not yet heard "How dogs learn", I have only heard about training terms. This book should be retitled to "How dog trainers try to teach dogs". I am sorry to have to judge the book harshly because I am sure to a Ph.D. these are the technical terms that dog trainers should know. But if the publisher wants this book to get better reviews, then they need to change the title! Save a lot of time and just go to Wiki and lookup Operant Conditioning. If anyone knows what the best chapter(s) are for getting to the part of the book that talks about how dogs actually learn, then let us know.

In-depth look at Dog Behavior

This is college level and absolutely worth it. You have to listen to it several times. The PDF is very helpful.

Excellent read for trainers & owners

Absolutely loved this descriptive well written easy to understand book. Anyone needing to understand learning concepts in dogs to be better trainers or to simply have a better relationship with your own dogs should read.
