From Publishers Weekly:

Canis familiaris enters the New Age as Behan, owner and head trainer of a Connecticut kennel, proposes a new theory to explain man's best friend's behavior--to wit, that "making prey is the entire scope of the learning process in canines and is responsible for the species' advanced form of social living." He expands on this intriguing hypothesis in several lengthy chapters, but with a lot of sloganistic phrases about "harmonic pathways" and "flow of drive" instead of scientific or logical argument--and his overview of canine domestication is surely ahistorical. The prey instinct, Behan argues, can be directed toward toys or even moving vehicles as well as other animals, and can be used to motivate a dog in training. His actual methods are not wholly original, but they are useful. Lessons offer a host of incentives to make and keep training a positive experience for dog and handler--at least, those handlers willing to entertain suggestions about "waking the puppy within."

From Library Journal:

Trainer Behan says, "What is newly presented here is the idea that . . . the prey instinct" is the connecting and underlying theme in all canine behavior. Behan shows how to channel this prey instinct into desirable behavior through play sessions and basic obedience exercises. He also discusses training puppies, calming rambunctious dogs, and handling problem dogs. In the chapter "Kids and Puppies," he offers sound advice on teaching children and dogs to live in harmony. While Behan covers a wide range of topics, some owners will prefer John Ross and Barbara McKinney's Dog Talk ( LJ 5/15/92) . Both books tell owners how to refocus the dog's natural instincts, which inhibit learning, but the simpler, more detailed instructions in Dog Talk will appeal to the average dog owner. --Helen Sondrol, Lincoln Univ.
