About the Author
KRISTA CANTRELL is a cognitive animal behaviorist and prize-winning agility trainer who practices positive, dog-friendly, reward-based training methods. She lives in Arizona with her husband and their dogs, cats, and horses.
Cantrell, a cognitive animal behaviorist, has created a dog-training method that will appeal to a wide variety of dog owners. Taking a holistic point of view, she points out that a dog (or any other creature) cannot learn if under inappropriate stress. She demonstrates in pictures and easy-to-understand language various techniques to assess a dog's learning style, reduce or eliminate unnecessary stress, and develop a deeper bond between dog and handler. While not all trainers will agree with her assertion that dogs think (like dogs, after all), basing her technique on sound principles of operant conditioning as well as New Age health philosophies certainly makes this a unique work that moves beyond training dogs to teaching them and developing a human-dog bond that really works. For all pet-care collections.‘Alicia Graybill, Lincoln City Libs., Neb.
