From the author of Don't Shoot the Dog!, this book & two SitStay clickers are a must have for those learning clicker training. Clicker training is not about the clicker or about the food. It is about the reinforcement presented with correct timing in such a way that information is communicated between trainer & pet. Together you and the dog will learn a new way of interacting. We have used this method with one of our dogs to rapidly teach her how to ring a bell and to touch anything we ask her to touch. This newest version includes photographs that illustrate the training exercises. Contents: Clicker Training for Dogs (book), two SitStay clickers (Copyright 2005, Paperback, 100 pages, 5 1/4 inches x 8 1/4 inches)

There's nothing wrong with this book, it's just too simplistic and basic. If I was going to convince someone of the utility and value of clicker training versus more traditional alpha-dog methods, this would not be the book to win hearts and minds. Now that I have some experience with clicker training, it didn't offer anything beyond the very basics, which my pup has mastered, nor did it explain how to overcome common pitfalls. There are several positive training YouTube channels with more in-depth instruction and valuable commands.

While this book lacks any truly interesting anecdotes, the book does provide a concrete preview into clicker training for dogs. Ideally, this book will come in handy when I start training my new puppy, who will be home in a matter of weeks. For anyone who reads this book and develops a taste for clicker training, Pryor's book, "Don't Shoot the Dog", is an excellent and entertaining resource on the subject.

Turned on to this author from Team Dog. Exactly what I expected; helped me plan how to begin training the dog we're adopting next week.

Definitely a good book for people first learning about using a clicker in operant training. Still a good review for people who already know the basics.
