John Ross is a noted dog trainer. He and Barbara McKinney are regular contributors to Dog World magazine. They live in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
Trainer, radio host, and author Ross based his teaching methods on the theory that dogs learn through behavior. If it is agreeable to them as they are doing it, they will repeat it; if it is disagreeable, they will avoid it. In easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions Ross and coauthor McKinney show owners how to apply this theory when training. They also discuss canine breed characteristics, capabilities, and limitations. Dog Talk is for all dog owners who want happy, obedient, well-mannered pets without attending training classes or without the perfection required for show competition. Recommended for most libraries.
