A Better Way to Better Behavior

Karen Pryor's clear and entertaining explanation of behavioral training methods made Don't Shoot the Dog! a bestselling classic. Now this revised edition presents more of her insights into animal—and human—behavior.

A groundbreaking behavioral scientist and dynamic animal trainer, Karen Pryor is a powerful proponent of the principles and practical uses of positive reinforcement in teaching new behaviors. Here are the secrets of changing behavior in pets, kids—even yourself—without yelling, threats, force, punishment, guilt trips...or shooting the dog:

•The principles of the revolutionary "clicker training" method, which owes its phenomenal success to its immediacy of response—so there is no question what action you are rewarding
•8 methods of ending undesirable habits—from furniture-clawing cats to sloppy roommates
•The 10 laws of "shaping" behavior–for results without strain or pain through "affection training"
•Tips for house-training the dog, improving your tennis game, or dealing with an impossible teen
•Explorations of exciting new uses for reinforcement training

Learn why pet owners rave, "This book changed our lives!" and how these pioneering techniques can work for you too.


"Whatever the task, whether keeping a four-year-old quiet in public, housebreaking a puppy, coaching a team, or memorizing a poem, it will go fast, and better, and be more fun, if you know how to use reinforcement."--Karen Pryor.

Now Karen Pryor clearly explains the underlying principles of behavioral training and through numerous fascinating examples reveals how this art can be applied to virtually any common situation. And best of all, she tells how to do it without yelling threats, force, punishment, guilt trips--or shooting the dog. 8 methods for putting an end to all kinds of undesirable behavior. The 10 laws of "shaping" behavior--for results without strain or pain through "affection training." How to combat your own addictions to alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, overeating or whatever, how to deal with such difficult problems as a moody spouse, an impossible teen, or an aged parent. Plus. . .House training the dog, improving your tennis game, keeping the cat off the table, and much more!

"In the course of becoming a renowned dolphin trainer, Karen Pryor learned that positive reinforcement (the only kind useable with dolphins, who can't be reached with leashes, bridles, fists, or yells) is even more potent that prior scientific work had suggested. . .This new book looks like the very best on the subject--a full-scale mind-changer."--Stewart Brand, The Coevolution Quarterly .

5つ星のうち 5.0 Very highly recommended 2017/5/11

As a professional zoo animal trainer, I have given and recommended this book to dozens of people. In the zoo community we train animals with this method of operant conditioning, which is more ethical and effective than the traditional training that the vast majority of dog and horse trainers use. This book is one of the gold standards. It is very easy to read and understand, and covers a lot of ground. It does delve into some of the quirks and harder parts of animal training, but in an accessible way. It also provides examples of training a behavior using different methods. For anyone wanting to train their pets, or understand a positive reinforcement system of training for animals or even humans, this is a must-read.

My friend who's a police & service dog trainer recommended this & Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson to me after I told her I'm getting my first dog. I'm glad I read this book before I read Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson! Karen Pryor did an excellent job explaining learning theory & behaviorism to a complete novice like me. I even started applying some of her ideas in my daily life in trying not to be so hard on myself when I'm sucking at sports.

I would highly recommend this to everyone, not just dog people.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A training book for animals and humans for your everyday life. 2014/10/19
投稿者 Jes Jones - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
A previous coworker recommended this book, among many others, when I was coming into my interest in canine behavior and training and it's definitely a worthwhile read, or reference book, for those interested in training anything, or anyone.

Karen Pryor created an easy to read book breaking down positive reinforcement training, as well as other types of training and how they can be applied not only to animals, but to the people around us, within our work and school environment and pretty much in our day to day life. She explains how positive reinforcement provides better results over alternative methods of training by making plenty of comparisons to punishment based training methods as well as negative reinforcement training methods. I loved the incorporation of her personal stories, and training sessions, in order to emphasis certain drawbacks to punishment, and specific benefits to positive reinforcement training.

There was plenty of material in this book that overlapped with the novice clicker training course that I had taken a month ago which it allowed me to breeze through some parts but enough new material to keep me engaged and actively reading till the end.

Overall, a worthwhile read for those interested in pursuing training of any kind (or are looking for healthier ways to improve the relationships in their lives).

5つ星のうち 4.0 Mostly for dogs,some translates to people 2017/3/3

I bought as I heard it applies to humans as well, and parts do, but this book is mostly for training dogs. I wish people could be clicker trained! That said, it is full of wisdom and interesting stories, and if you want to train a dog, it is even better. I am sure I will use it when I get my next dog but I bought for working with people. One thing she writes that I immediately adopted was to praise people as soon as they do good, just as you would a dog. I used to wait and tell them, or send a nice email, or even a snail mail note. Now I know it is most impactful and will grow more good behavior if expressed immediately.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The art of learning how to interact with everyone (and everythhing) 2017/1/18
投稿者 John McConnell - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Amazing book! Probably should be required reading for almost anyone. The title of the book is a little deceiving but the subtitle says it all. Teaching and training is beneficial on both ends of the stick, so to speak. The trainer as well as the trained share a mutual learning experience. This book has TONS of tricks and tactics as well as real life stories to match the science. Not only will you learn how to train a dog (or a chicken) but you will learn about communication with all other things and the push-pull we have in everyday life. Buy this book and read it now! Your life pretty much depends on it.
