Behavior and training
Over the years there have been many different approaches to training animals of all species, and I now promote very positive training methods including clicker. I am re-training myself as I still revert back to some corrective type measures.
Pat Miller has been an author for dozens of years at the Whole Dog Journal and I have loved her articles. What a joy to meet her and see her farm (39 year old rescued horse!). I recommend any and every one of these books. Easy to read, good when you apply her gentle, loving techniques. And she does clicker training, which you know I now love.
