Book - When Pigs Fly by Jane Killion

I'm really really enjoying this book at the moment. Although she has written this primarily for Terrier owners I think it would be a great read for any dog owner. Step by step clicker exercises, and good explanations. Anyone else read it? Here is a link to it.

I've read it. I think it can apply to most any dog - not just terriers. I don't like quite all her sterotypes on dog breeds, but overall I like it. I don't own a dog though, just volunteer at a shelter so I can't quite apply everything to see how it works first hand.

You see I thought she understood terriers very well, didn't see it as stereotyping at all but just a good understanding of the breed and how they tick. I thought she tapped into that very well. I've now been able to get Evie into clicker training and realised where I was going wrong with her.
