‘Positive Police Dogs:Philosophy’ now available

At last you can get your hands on the first book in the series. Learn about the science of learning and about animal behaviour. The book sets out an ideology towards a style of training rather than being a how to manual but makes for very interesting reading and is vital in order to understand the language and ideas in the other books in the series. Just click HERE and follow the online instructions.

Also available are the next three books in the series. They are designed to be modular and How to raise a working puppy takes you through the steps of raising a puppy, and preparing it for further training. Patrol dog teaches the routines in prey drive and in Patrol dog 2 the role of the agitator becomes paramount in turning the dog from sport dog into street dog.

  1. I received the book but it’s advertised as a series. Are there more?

      ‘Patrol Dog’ will be available in a couple of months followed by the rest of the series which will be a more in depth look at the individual elements (tracking etc).

    I’m a dog trainer in the US…just received your book yesterday…more than half way through…it’s great!…you have a lovely way of illustrating points and explain learning theory in a user friendly manner. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.

    (Is there any way to contact you off-line? I am very much interested in training police dogs using +R and am having trouble locating anyone with that particular skill set.)

    ps. the You Tube videos are great as well!

  3. I have conducted 2 shock collar experiments using human volunteers. The first to map out how people experience shock at different levels on different parts of their bodies. The second consisted of the subject wearing the shock collar set to no more than 50% of the tolerable shock as defined in the first experiment. The subject was trained for maximum 10 minutes to do certain behaviors in a language they did not understand, with the tester using +R (praise), +P (single shocks to punish bad behavior) and -R (so-called escape/avoidance training). All sessions were video recorded and analysed afterwards for stress indications, including the the interview after each session.
    The shock trainers were not amused at the results.
