    1 thought on “How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves

    1. B.F. Skinner's operant conditioning in action. Common sense instructions, not necessarily quick, but easy, training with heart and preserving the dignity of your dog. Highly, highly recommended for your next or current dog.

    2. There is no one in the field of canine behaviour who is quite as good as Sophia Yin. She teaches the most current science in behaviour and does so in a way that anyone can understand and follow.

    3. A great book for a new puppy home. Covers everything from the biology of puppies to adult dogs. Covers really important tools for helping your puppy learn a bit of restraint and calm. The say please skill I am already using with great success for a nine week old bird dog puppy. Covers aggression, food and resource guarding and separation anxiety.

    4. Who's a good book? Who's a good book? You are.Something one should know about this book is that it was exactly what I was looking for, but it may not be for everybody. This book is textbook-like, it presents a lot of the relevant science and information, and mostly provides you with the knowledge to plan your own training around your dog and environment. It isn't until half way through the book that Yin moves into specific behaviors and how to train them.I wanted all the extra information and th [...]

    5. Very concise, useful guide to positive reinforcement training. Lays out a plan for teaching your puppy or adult dog basics, as well as ways to deal with problem behaviors, working towards a well-socialized, well-trained, dog and a healthy relationship with you. I found her chapter on punishment and why she rarely if ever recommends using shock collars or such methods particularly interesting, as coming from an animal behaviorist's viewpoint. Her emphasis on how your behavior effects your dog's i [...]

    6. There's a chapter "keeping safe around kids" that was helpful. Tips about introducing baby to dog and forming good habits from day one of bringing baby home. Anthony has tried other training tips from the book and it seems to be working well-- I'm evening thinking about buying the book as the library doesn't have it and it's due back as an inter-library loan very soon.

    7. This is probably the best dog training book I've read. Yin is sympathetic to the difficulties of positive training instead of lecturing. She understands both human and dog behavior and wants the best for both. She should be more well-known than Cesar Milan so spread the word!

    8. This book is an amazing resource for positive reinforcement training. I Learned many usefulTechniques that I found I could easily incorporate. I also found the videos extremely helpful. I know that I will find myself rereading sections and referring to this book in the future.

    9. Maybe I like this book so much because it is ACTUALLY WORKING. It is really time and labor intensive, but the methods are working and it really seems to be paying off.

    10. Written by a veterinarian who has studied dogs and dog behavior, this is a good, basic dog training book.

    11. This one speaks for itself. I can't say it helped me alot, because we have a bassett hound and by nature they are STUBBORN. But it has put a different perspective on how we treat and talk to him.

    12. If you're only going to read one book about dog training, this is a great one!Yin begins with an overview of dog body language and the principles of using classical and operant conditioning to train animals without using aversives. The middle portion of the book explains how to train a number of really useful behaviors in your dog (e.g. say please by sitting, leave it, come when called) that can be used to solve most behavioral issues you might have with your dog. The final section gives tips fo [...]

    13. This is a good book if you are young and fit and have a good place to work with your dog and friends willing to help. However, if you are older, not so fit and don't have a good place to work with your dog it is useless. The title is somewhat misleading. It's not about your behavior, it's about your training ability.Seems to be written for folks under 60 who live in an urban or suburban area, have access to dog parks, have a big yard for training or access to a training facility. Great book if y [...]

    14. Really enjoyed this book. Its simple to read and understand and great for when you decided to take a new puppy home. Has some great exercises to try and good advice on things like crate training, separation anxiety, nipping etc.

    15. I don't usually write reviews, but I feel moved to do so for "How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves"! This book is an absolute must read for dog lovers, trainers and anyone who interacts with dogs. Here's five reasons why I love and recommend this book:1. Dr.Yin's methods are completely positive. You will not find dominance training or extreme corrections here.2. It covers everything from simple (teaching a dog to sit) to more complex (teaching a dog to "go to his/her place) and does so in a approac [...]

    16. Great book but ideally suited to someone on their own training a pup, finding it harder with three children and a busy lifestyle Saying that I will take everything I can from it because the methods are great and will almost certainly work.

    17. One of my top five favorite training books. Sophia Yin explains everything in an extremely clear and easy to follow way, always with the dog's well-being uppermost in her mind. The illustrations are great too! This is a book I will return to again and again.

    18. I didn't finish this book. Although well written, I think it is more for those interested in professional training or rescue folks dealing with all kinds of behaviors. I would use this more as a reference book when needed for specific problems.

    19. This is a great book with many practical ideas how to train your dog. It is a book from a dog expert trainer written simply so that everyone can train their own dog. It is simple to understand and gives a good insight into the dog nature. I am very happy that I read it. )

    20. Some great updated ideas on how to train dogs with positive methods. When I get a new dog, this book will be referred to often.

    21. great info. good balance of easy pictures and instructions with short overviews of the science of training domestication etc
