Great insights here by Alexandra Kurland – how training philosophies mirror political philosophies which in turn reflect our worldviews.
New Years Greetings!
I always like to prepare a New Year’s gift for everyone, a thank you for all the support people have shown for clicker training. This year’s gift comes in the form of a new blog post.
As we count down the days towards the Presidential Inauguration, this seems like an appropriate article to post. There were so many times when I was puzzled and even deeply disturbed by the 2016 election campaign. To help decipher the puzzle that is American politics, I’ve been reading some of George Lakoff’s books. What really hooked me were the very obvious parallels with horse training. This post is a result of my reading.
I thought about breaking this article up into a series of shorter posts so it wouldn’t monopolize your reading time, but it is better read in larger chunks. So make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy.
