The Science and Technology of Dog Training is a manual for both students of dog training and established professionals, presenting basic through to advanced principles, strategies, and techniques in non-coercive dog training. No fads or proprietary "one-true-way" "systems." Dog Training introduces the natural science of behavior, its principles and the technology of behavior engineering derived from it. It covers all of the foundational behaviors with instructions from preliminaries right through to maintenance and also advanced training procedures such as shaping and behavior chaining for complex behaviors. Dog Training presents a positive reinforcement emphasized approach. Dog Training is treated like a self-study course in a book, providing a list of detailed behavior objectives for each chapter as well as exercises trainers can use to develop and expand their repertoire of effective training behaviors.
