From the back cover:

“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 modification 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.”
