“Today’s Lesson

  • Dominance: separating fact from fiction
  • The nature vs. nurture debate
  • Fixed action patterns in dog behavior
  • How to use classical conditioning in dog training
  • How the owner’s personality affects the dog’s behavior
  • Are you a dog-mom or dog-dad?

‘Jean treats every conceivable problem a dog might have…at both a practical and theoretical level. You will know what to do, and why you should do it, covering both major methods of training – operant conditioning and classical conditioning. In a book centered on the behavior of dogs, an unexpected treat are the nuggets on neurotransmitters and genes. In a few lucid strokes, Jean brings you up to date on these timely subjects. If you find yourself with a free afternoon, you might drive to the nearest college, and take a final in advanced psychology, and gain credits toward your graduation!’

David Premack, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania”
