TITLE: Author Event: Karen Pryor - "Reaching the Animal Mind"
TIME: 1 p.m.
LOCATION: Tatnuck Event Room
DESCRIPTION: Join author Karen Pryor from 1-3 p.m. as she discusses and signs her new book, "Reaching the Animal Mind." Karen Pryor has improved the lives of millions of animals. A celebrated pioneer in the field of no-punishment animal training, she introduced an innovative training system in her groundbreaking bestseller, "Don't Shoot the Dog!" Now, after 30 years of training creatures both tame and wild, Pryor presents the sum total of what she knows about teaching animals and what they in turn have taught her. Pryor's all-positive clicker-training system is a safe, effective way to modify and shape behavior. She can teach anyone to train animals with a cheap, plastic, handheld clicker, rewarding wanted behaviors—click!—and ignoring the unwanted. No leash-jerking. No pushing. No smacking. Animals quickly learn that one behavior gets them a reinforcing click and a bit of food, and undesirable behaviors get them, well, nothing at all. Given the choice, animals quickly focus on what works and abandon what doesn't. Everyone is welcome to attend. Reaching the Animal Mind uses clear, accessible language that will allow anyone to master Pryor's training system.
