What’s It About?
The Science and Technology of Animal Training is a Masters level textbook, written to help students of animal training and established professionals alike expand their repertoire of knowledge and skills in the natural science of behaviour and the applied technology derived from it in training companion animals.
It does not present fads or proprietary “one-true-way” “systems.” It provides a thorough introduction to basic through to advanced laws, principles, strategies and techniques in positive reinforcement-emphasised companion animal training. It covers all of the foundational behaviours for training dogs, cats, birds, horses and humans with detailed instructions. It covers advanced training procedures such as shaping, chaining and sequencing in depth.
This book provides a set of hands-on trainer exercises to help the trainer develop their skills.
