Here’s more of everything you love from author Jean Donaldson: snappy, research-based answers to common dog behavior questions, humorous insights into the human half of living and working with dogs all in the form of Q&As for easy reading.
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 of 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, Ph.D., author, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania
