    This book well actually just the author was recommended to me about 10 years ago in grad school The topic was very vaguely related to my thesis but enough so for me to drop everything and read it on the spot so I saved it to read when I had the timeUnfortunately I found the author's ideas to be woefully out of date and old fashioned She advocates correcting dogs with a commanding authoritative yank on the leash instead of positive

    I despised the writing in this book I was tempted to stop many times when the inane incomprehensible philosophical babbling got too much but then there would be an actual animal training story that would catch my interest and I would labor on Hearne had some interesting things to say but would always write it in the most academic and confusing way possible She also constantly throws in random literary references in a w

Vioral research but as her examples show is astonishingly effective Hearne’s theories will make every trainer animal psychologist and animal lover stop think and uesti I despised the writing in this book I was tempted to stop many times when the inane incomprehensible philosophical babbling got too much but then there would be an actual animal training story that would catch my interest and I would labor on Hearne had some interesting things to say but would always write it in the most academic and confusing way possible She also constantly throws in random literary references in a way that made me feel like she was showing off rather than actually trying to make her message clearer or compelling I wanted to show an example of what I mean so I flipped the book open to a random page and found a sample paragraph In the case of dictatorships Auden might want to remind us that there is also this consideration Of a community it may be said that its love is or less good Perfect love doesn t exist perhaps our sense of uneasiness in the presence of what we call fanaticism may be expressed not only as Wallace Stevens had it by talking about the logical lunatic the lunatic of one idea In a world of ideas but also by saying that fanatics don t seem to have noticed that the world really is fallen and that acknowledgment of this is as essential to our lives as that acknowledgment of human separation is to the prevention of tragedies in human love Political tragedy perhaps comes about through failing to acknowledge imperfections in our apprehension of the sacred what Cavell calls the separation from God pg 66 Hearne s philosophy of training is somewhat controversial but it s hard to argue with the results she describes She believes in respect rather than kindness and has a revulsion for owners who say things like what a good doggy She talks a lot about corrections which sound harsh to me such as pinching a dogs ears or pushing its head into a hole filled with water However she does clearly love working with animals and she wants them to reach their potential It made me think about whether the same logic applies to people It all left me kind of confused and vaguely uncomfortableOverall it s a good thing I got this for free or I would want my money back
