At $12 I was shocked at how light on substance this 50 page Leaflet was. I expect if you sought out this book you already know Clicker Training is good and want to learn more. In this leaflet you get some light intoroductions to a few basic concepts, but she leaves so much out... If your looking for more than Puff, I suggest Clicker Training for Obedience by Morgan Spector. It's $10 more, but 10 times the book and actually contains some information. So much for internet shopping.... Had I actually been able to see and touch this book I would have Never bought it. Live and learn. Buyer Beware.
Clicker training isn't hard to do with help from Karen Pryor's photos with clear explanations of crucial details suc as why timing is essential.
This booklet is the perfect introduction to clicker training. It gives the reader the basic rationale behind training with positive reinforcement, and gives you simple, practical advice for how to get started. For someone who doesn't want to wade through tomes of theoretical training theory, this is perfect. I recommened buying it in "kit" form, which includes the booklet, some treats and a clicker. If you've never tried clicker training, this is the best book to start with.
