Chazz’s Literary Corner- Book Review & GiveAway-March 20, 2014
Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words
by John W. Pilley with Hilary Hinzman
Copyright 2013 New York, NY ISBN 978-0-544-10257-6
SUMMARY: This is a fascinating story of the bonded working relationship between the professor and his Border Collie, Chaser: reportedly, one of the smartest breeds. At the time he was Professor at Wofford College of Spartanburg, South Carolina, John Pilley developed training methods and engaged some of his students to help in Chaser’s training. Often Chaser was a member of the class, having been brought to the lab by Prof. Pilley.
OPINION: This is a highly interesting read. We found it motivating and inspirational regarding our personal training goals for ChazztheDog. We found it jaw dropping that this dog can find and identify 100’s of different dog toys in a huge pile of them, all jumbled together. The book also suggests that any Pet Pawrent can employ similar methods to teach their pet to learn multiple words and actions! If you want to go beyond Sit/Stay/Heel and really communicate with your dog – read Chaser’s story.
