Reprint. 1954 translation of Konrad Most's classic work on dog training. Most was applying behavioral training principles with dogs long before B.F. Skinner. While his methods may be viewed as harsh by modern dog trainers, the theory behind it was revolutionary for its time and is still applied today. Discover the roots of behavioral training: see the world from a dog's point of view; utilize instinctual behavior in training; use of compulsion and inducement; use of primary and secondary reinforcers. Learn how Col. Most taught: obedience exercises including the recall, jumping and retrieving; guard and schutzhund training; reconnaissance and tracking; scent theory; water work; hunting dog training; dogs for the blind. **Please note that Dogwise does not endorse all of the training methods used in this book; it is a historical document and an early example of modern dog training.
