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.

Getting Started: Clicker Training for Dogs Reviews
Great introduction to clicker training
I got to this book, or more specifically to Karen Pryor, while doing some research on training methodology effectiveness. I have never been comfortable with the idea of dominating an animal, so this just suits me best. If the training is equally as effective, and I don't have too act like a jerk, it's win for me.
Charlie hearts his clicker. In the past two months I have finally been able to get him to retrieve his frisbee reliably. The key was to keep absolutely silent and let the clicker do the talking.
Short, Simple, Effective and Enthusiastic
I am far-reaching this after over a decade since my first exposure to the ideas inside it. It is an excellent introduction to the practice and a little of the theory of clicker training. The ideas that this week book out across so well helped me build a great relationship with my first dog and I'm looking forward to using them again with my new puppy.
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.
