What’s It About?
An expanded version of Karen Pryors dolphin-training saga, Lads Before the Wind, which tells the story of how she first learned about shaping and marker signals and all the rest, training dolphins in Hawaii.
Lads has become a bit of a classic over the years, especially among trainers. Karen has now added four more chapters on her dolphin adventures after Sea Life Park days, from diving in the nets of tuna boats to using operant conditioning to REALLY talk, and even joke, with a dolphin. It ends with a chapter on clicker training — which is really, after all, dolphin training for everyone.
