Dunbar on Practical Application of Behavioral Learning Theory

Knowledge of the research that's been done on learning theory is invaluable, but, as Ian Dunbar points out, humans don't have to train like computers to integrate the latest science--and people are hamstringing their relationships with their dogs when they try.

Dunbar presents some interesting thoughts about using learning theory in real life dog training and communicating with our dogs when we're training--and how the nuances and idiosyncrasies of human speech and gestures can do so much more than a simple click.
