Dog Training Articles

 I  am including several articles about dog cognition and dog training that  I have written over the past several years.  They both deal with how  research on the cognitive abilities of dogs has transformed some of the  most commonly used, everyday practices of dog training.  The first  article was originally published in the Journal of the International  Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and then re-published in the  national journal of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.  I am including  this in pdf format.  The second article was published in the IAABC  Journal, but I am including the link because the piece contains several  videos embedded within it that are very important to the overall  article.  I eventually plan to publish both of these essays, as well as  other musings on this topic as a book, but in the meantime, enjoy!
