Expanded Description:

Great news for those of you who have wanted to read a book that explains animal learning in a manner that is easily understood and entertaining. With the freedom of understanding 'how your dog learns' comes the ability of making the process easy, efficient and enjoyable for your dog. You'll be in a position to excel-erate your dog's learning! Agility enthusiast, obedience competitor and psychologist Dr. Pamela Reid introduces you to cutting-edge scientific techniques in dog training including, autoshaping retrieval (i.e., letting the dog train itself), and 'errorless discrimination learning' for teaching scent articles and directed jumping. The combination of a relaxed writing style and numerous examples that relate to dog training makes learning theory actually fun to learn

The Bible for the CCPDT Test, March 15, 2010
Reviewer: Crystal Saling
If you are studying for your CCPDT test, I strongly suggest that you read, re-read, and memorize the vast majority of this book. Written for behavior professionals, this book is an absolute must-have. Though some of the examples of training are aversive- this only goes to set examples of each quadrant of learning theory. How on earth did Dr. Reid get an entire psychology text into such a small book?
 
Four and a half paws, maybe five..., October 26, 2009
Reviewer: David B
It is a bit hard to describe, Excel-erated Learning may not be one of those 'REQUIRED' books that directly addresses training offering actual techniques, solutions, and ideas, but it goes to the next level of our learning by dealing with what is happening in the dog's (or any animal) mind as their learning is taking place. If you have interest in the science of learning, then this book explains it.

Pamela does a good job of explaining what is rocket science to us regular dummies in the world. The only reason I didn't give the book a five paw rating, is because you need to ask yourself if you do have interest in the science of learning before you just buy it. If you do... Well, here is that five paw rating in my text.

I borrowed this book from a friend. Never have I read someone else' book and wanted to make high-lighter marks on the text, and notes in the margin so bad! Even after reading it for free, I intend to get my own copy just so I can make those notes and marks.
 
I learned SOOO much, December 31, 2007
Reviewer: Stevie Mathre
This is not an easy book to read, but if you are interested in the theories behind operant conditioning and learning theory in general, this is THE book. The best book on how learning works and things that affect it that I’ve ever read.
