    Kayce Cover’s manual is not a how to teach your dog to sit type book. It’s about the full spectrum of life long interactions with an animal. From global life plans including changing abilities from infancy to aging animals, vet care, management, day to day events such as being quiet while waiting for food to perhaps rare events like being shipped on an airline, this book helps you create a plan for the things your animal is likely to encouter. What the animal will need to learn about during its lifetime with you and how you can teach this. It’s about 2 way communication, the animal has a chance to say I’m not able to do this yet and there is a way to play a version of 20 questions so you can ask your animal do you want a drink of water, some food, a chance to play and more. The trainer can efficiently give feedback about how the animal’s performance is improving and if it errs let it know immediately without upsetting the animal. Like the game of hot and cold, as the animal gets closer to the correct response, there is feedback to help it understand exactly what is wanted and if it starts to drift off, gets immediate feedback about where it goofed and when it is again doing it right.

    This reduces confusion, which improves communication and trust.

    Kayce has taken operant conditioning beyond its limits to operant communication. Animals are proving they can understand concepts such as color, states of emotion like calm, reliably identify various objects such as a cell phone or variety of flower, monkeys can be taught to use a video tape player and feed quadraplegics and more.

    If you only get one book on training animals, make it this one.
