Overview

Trainers and animal behaviorists around the globe consider Pam Reid's Excel-erated Learning one of the most important and influential books ever written in the field of dog behavior. Although that's a hard act to follow, Dog InSight, Pam's second book, does not disappoint. In over forty fascinating essays, Pam explores a wide range of topics, including learning theory, training techniques and behavior problems.

You will learn:

Why early enrichment and socialization are crucial when raising a puppy.

Why you should take puppy "temperament tests" with a grain of salt.

Why dogs are incredibly adept at reading body language and solving certain kinds of complex problems—but "spectacularly dense" when facing other tasks.

Why misunderstanding dominance theory often leads to failure when people try to change problem behaviors in dogs.

How pharmacologic treatments can enhance behavior modificarion plans for fearful, anxious and aggressive dogs.

Pam's insights are both educational and thought-provoking. Not only does she deliver scientifically sound information; she also challenges the reader to re-examine several widely held—but not necessarily accurate—beliefs about dogs. If you're at all interested in canine behavior, you won't want to miss out on this well-presented wealth of knowledge.

Praise for Dogs InSight

Wonderful! At long last, another book from Dr. Pamela Reid. I can remember eagerly waiting for each new article when they were first published in Dogs in Canada and am so excited that they are now compiled together. I simply can't say enough good things about this book. Dog InSight is a MUST read for all dog owners. Dr. Ian Dunbar, Founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers
