From Taipei to Tel Aviv, clicker training continues to spread around the world, as students in the Karen Pryor Academy In
A member of the first graduating class of Karen Pryor Academy, Terri P. Tepper of Barrington, IL, was recently profiled in the Barrington Courier Review. Terri's training business is the Cultivated Canine, also located in Barrington, IL. An excerpt from the profile:
"Terri Tepper, a Barrington area resident for over 40 years, is a former teacher, published author and portrait photographer but recently shifted her attention to her love of dogs and is the only certified clicker method dog trainer in Illinois.
"Clicker training is a dog obedience course that stresses positive reinforcement and Tepper said the training is more fun for dogs and the animals are more receptive to learning."
Recently, author of "The Loved Dog", Tamar Geller was featured on Oprah. Tamar Geller advocates a positive, hands-off approach to dog training using rewards rather than punishment to show the dog what is expected.
Geller has an enormous reach into the homes of the American public through shows and publications such as Oprah, 20/20, USA Today and The New York Times Magazine.
Thousands of people will be discovering the joys and advantages of a positive, hands-off approach to dog training - and apart from reading "The Loved Dog", where will they find it in their town?
