Calling Animals by NameBook - 2016
"Have you ever watched a horse flick her tail or had a dog greet you at your door and known in your heart that the animal was exhibiting something more than simple instinctual responses? If so, you must read this book. In it Vicki Hearne asserts that animals that interact with humans are more intelligent than we assume. In fact, they are capable of developing an understanding of "the good," a moral code that influences their motives and actions. Hearne's thorough studies led her to adopt a new system of animal training that contradicts modern animal behavioral research, but--as her examples show--is astonishingly effective. Hearne's theories will make every trainer, animal psychologist, and animal-lover stop, think, and question." --Publisher's description.
