Karen Pryor on Steve Dale's Pet World
One-hour with the Queen of Operant Conditioning, Karen Pryor. Listen to my wide ranging 890-AM WLS podcast, as the legendary Karen Pryor and discuss everything from Oscar training (as in a kind of fish) to playing games with your dog which dogs help invent the rules. Other topics range from Cesar Millan to kleptomaniac Dalmatians. You’ve never heard Karen Pryor quite like this.
As she began training dogs again, she thought – well, why use a choke collar? She didn’t – she used a clicker. Today, that’s how millions of dogs and lots and lots of other kinds of animals are trained. She writes about clicker training, but also how animals learn in her latest book, “Reaching the Animal Mind.”
