A break through book for the self-willed dog,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Pigs Fly!: Training Success with Impossible Dogs (Paperback)
This is THE book for those of us with the less biddable, independent, work-it-out-on-their-own kinds of dogs. Basically anything with a brain that isn't genetically programmed to ask you what you want it to do... I'd still recommend 'Don't Shoot the Dog' and 'The Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog Training' first as basic grounding in the science - we don't get to variable reinforcement schedules until quite a way into this - but it's so, so very good for actually understanding how to motivate your dog. Anyone who can get a Staffie or an EBT doing agility (and winning) has to be on to something good.
Get it, you won't regret it.
