PLTC is a short true video story of Animal Behavior Enterprises. ABE began as a dream on a small farm in 1943. It was the first commercial application of Skinnerís then-new operant conditioning. ABE revolutionized animal training.
PLTC chronicles Keller and Marian Brelandís first lessons training pigeons to guide bombs during WW2, and Bob and Marian Baileyís pioneering work with free-flying birds and free-swimming dolphins almost four decades ago. Together, the Brelands and the Baileys trained over 140 species and thousands of individual animals, and people too.
PLTC tells how the science of behavior became a powerful, practical, and useful behavioral technology.
PLTC is a story about science and technology, about successes and failures. It is also about business, and putting bread on the table for a staff of over 40, mostly rural Arkansans, and most without college degrees.
PLTC is a must-see 45 minute video for animal trainers, psychologists, students, historians, and anyone interested in success stories.

This five hour, 4 DVD set, captures some of the lecture series given by Bob Bailey in Long Beach in Southern California in March 2006. This lecture series was for the general public and a mix of novice and experienced dog trainers. The presentation was informal. There was no hands-on training, and the material presented addresses basic issues in training methods using primarily positive reinforcement. There is also a brief discussion of the business aspects of operating a company, using the Animal Behavior Enterprises model; successful for almost 50 years. Bob Bailey is not personally compensated for this video. The proceeds of the sale of the videos sold by Bob Bailey goes to the Marian Breland Bailey Scholarship Fund and Henderson State University, where Marian taught. When the video is purchased from Bob Bailey, the cost in the USA, Canada, and Mexico is $89 including shipping and handling.
