Description
Chaser has a way with words. She knows over a thousand of them - more than any animal of any species except humans. She and her owner/trainer, retired psychologist John Pilley, have now demonstrated her ability to understand sentences with multiple elements of grammar and to learn new behaviors by imitation. John's work with Chaser offers a fresh perspective on what's possible in the human-dog relationship, and reveals the positive impact of incorporating learning into play and more effectively channeling a dog's natural drives.
