    A Keeper

    Introduced to this book in a college psych course, I have kept it ever since because of its practicality. In very clear and easy to understand terms and language, Karen Pryor allows the reader to grasp and put into practice behavior modification for anyone... from dogs to humans. You don't really have to be a lover of psychology to appreciate and use this book, in my own opinion -- I've recommended this book to many people, regardless of their background. :)

    Great Book on Behavior

    This book is excellent whether you want to train a puppy, horse, dolphin, or any critter! It's very easy to read, and offers lots of examples rather than cut-and-dry psychology. I would recomment this book to anyone wanting to train, or wanting to know more about psychology. Or if you just want to know 'how do they get the dolphins to jump through the hoops?' This is the how-to book.

    Good Read for General Training Techniques

    We got this book to accompany Ceaser's dog training book. Many small differences, but many of the same processes.

    Great Gift...

    I gave this book to my daughter who is an animal science professional... She thought the book was excellent and liked the broad application to life itself rather than just dogs.

    Not just for dogs!

    I first read this book ten years ago and found the information transformational in dealing with classrooms of high school students. I bought a copy for the band director, too, believing it to be invaluable to anyone who is trying to manage individual and group learning. Today I am a retired teacher, but an active dog trainer. Pryor's book gave me a big headstart in successful use of positive reinforcement as a training tool. This stuff works in every area of your life.
