Summary
  • A "look at man's best friend and what the leading philosophies of dog training teach us about ourselves"--Book jacket
  • When Pierson brought home a border collie she didn't have a clue of how to get her to behave. Stunned after hiring a trainer whose immediate rapport with Mercy seemed magical, Pierson began delving into the techniques of positive reinforcement; to learn more, she met with a host of fascinating animal behaviorists, going behind the scenes to witness the relationships between trainers and animals at the National Zoo in Washington, DC, and to the in-depth seminars at a Clicker Expo where all the dogs but hers seemed to be learning new tricks. She draws surprising connections of how kindness works to motivate all animals, including the human one
