Across America, tails are wagging with anticipation. Why? Because dogs (and the people who love them) are tired of the school of dominant, top-dog training . They are looking for a new kind of pack leader: someone funny, enthusiastic, intuitive, approachable and, above all, effective. And they've found her. Sarah Hodgson rejects dominance-based training, and gets astonishing results with a blend of wit, compassion, energy and proven skills. She communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately and rewards success lavishly. Her students-both two- and four-legged-feel valued, confident, connected and smart. In short, she's the dog mommy everyone wishes they had.
Dogs are, in many ways, very similar to us. They have many of the same brain capacities as young children:
By several behavioral measures, a dog's mental abilities are equivalent to those of a human child 2 to 3½ years of age. Dogs are able to learn between 165 and 250 words, count up to 4 or 5, and have a basic understanding of arithmetic. They are able to form abstract concepts and categorize complex color photographs. Dogs are able to imitate human behaviors; domestic dogs are unusually skilled at reading human social and communicative behavior. Dogs also have a sense of fairness.
Doesn't it make sense to treat these sensitive, intelligent creatures a bit more like children? Kids-and dogs-raised with kindness and respect grow up happy. And happy is good. Modern Dog Parenting will show readers that yes, you can love your dog and live with him too.To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
