visión de conjunto:Críticas …the pictures on this book are amazing. The author has done an incredible job of accumulating 1600 photographs of dogs and cats along with a DVD to illustrate “techniques for developing patients who love their visits [to the veterinarian].” In a time when dominance techniques often take center stage for controlling and managing behavior it is a breath of fresh air to read the information contained [here]. It is science-based information (catalogued and referenced) …will really assist veterinarians… the information included here will provide fodder for clinic training opportunities…interesting and enlightening. Nonthreatening techniques are provided with photographs to illustrate the outcome… the combination of reading the text and watching the DVD with subsequent practice of the techniques sets the stage for an in-clinic learning experience for all… contains gems on counterconditioning cats to pilling and veterinarian-supervised technician behavior modification sessions… I strongly recommend this book for veterinarians and veterinary technicians as well as for owners. Communicating with patients and pets is paramount for a strong and healthy bond… it is fantastic to be able to recommend a book solidly grounded in science instead of one full of outdated techniques.–Terry Marie Curtis DVM MS DACVB JAVMA 15-Dec-2009This fantastic tome belongs on every trainer’s bookshelf as well as in every veterinary clinic and shelter in America… the ultimate guide for new and experienced trainers and anyone who regularly deals with animals and who wants to learn about gentle humane techniques… The DVD makes both an invaluable educational guide for yourself and can also be used to demonstrate specific behaviors to clients. If that’s not enough owning the book gives you access to information on Dr. Yin’s Web site including PDF files of client handouts on behavior and several entire chapters online…an incredibly useful avenue for broaching the subject of training and handling methods… If you buy one book this year on dog training and behavior I urge you to consider Low Stress Handling Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats as your choice. While it priced higher than most books that trainers and behavior counselors will consider it is well worth the price and you will find yourself referring to this book again and again as well as using it with clients and other dog care professionals to discuss animal behavior and the benefits of using positive low-stress methods.–Mychelle Blake MSW CDBC The APDT Chronicle of the Dog 01-Nov-2009 Reseña del editor Dr. Sophia Yin author of the Small Animal Veterinary Nerdbook is a veterinarian applied animal behaviorist author and speaker.
