5.0 out of 5 stars A book dog owners have been chasing for, 12 May 2011
This review is from: Chase!: Managing Your Dog's Predatory Instincts (Dogwise Training Manual) (Paperback)
A brilliant book! As a dog trainer and behaviourist (qualified) I gained alot from this book. It explains the merits of using positive reinforcement to change how dogs think and feel about their chosen prey (be it cars, rabbits, cyclists or cats). It also provides very good arguments (much better than I could have written myself) against using punishment, and aversives (things the dog may find frightening, or dislike intensely such as loud noises, or phsyical punishment such as an electric shock). I also feel I could recommend this book to clients without them getting to overwhelmed with science or terminology, nor is it too fluffy or full of anecdotes (just enough are used as examples to prove points). Overall the book aims to change your dog's behaviour, by training an alternative behaviour. From chasing its prey when he sees it, to sitting and looking at you. at which point you become way more fun than the prey item by providing food, attention and games. It also has some great exercies for teaching perfect recall and using longlines (great for allowing you dog freedom, whilst still being able to control his chasing). It would also be a good guide for preventing predatory chase in the frist place for new owners of shepherds, border collies, lurchers and terriers.
