Summary: This wonderful book is an illuminating and revealing look into the minds of all animals. After thirty years of training creatures both tame and wild, Pryor knows that given the choice, animals quickly focus on what works and abandon what doesn't.
You’ll be introduced to some of her more interesting pupils. Ponies are taught to surf, gloomy birds learn how to play, a rhinoceros routinely leans against a fence for a pedicure, and dogs learn everything with pointed ears and shining eyes that seem to say "You want what? I can do that; watch me!" Throughout the book, Pryor provides Web addresses where the reader can access video of the actual training sessions that she describes.
