Default Anyone heard of Dr. Yin?

I stumbled across this website while browsing another forum: AskDrYin.com

It seems really interesting. I have looked around it a bit, but there's a bunch of stuff I'll have to read later. Dr. Yin is a vet and a behaviorialist. She has some great articles about using science (not dominance) to train a dog, and a bunch of great videos. I just watched one about counter-conditioning a dog to accept nail trimming, and I'm impressed! Off to read more...

ETA: A warning to Firefox users, the videos are in Quicktime format, which tends to crash Firefox browsers, so open them in IE!

Don't know much about her, but I use her MannersMinders every day at work, don't know what I'd do without them!

She's quite well-respected! She has some neat info on kitten kindergarten in addition to dog stuff.

yep! as well as providing good info for pet owners (i have her book How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves), she's done a lot for less-stressful handling of animals in a veterinary environment.

Thanks for the input. I can't believe I hadn't heard of her until recently. I am definitely going to look into that book you guys mentioned!
