    Love training dogs? Buy this book!

    This is the perfect book for anyone thinking of crossing over in methods AND for those who want to know even more about the principles of clicker training. The author is a former traditional trainer who I think is the perfect voice of how and why to cross over to positive training for all dogs. (And she also believes positive does not equal permissive and includes a section on the proper use of punishment.) I have been using lure/reward and verbal marker training for 10 years now and this book has already helped me be even clearer in my communication with dogs during training. I think everyone who trains dogs should read this book. It will improve training skills regardless of methods because there is alot of fabulous information relating to timing of rewards that I think will be useful to all dogs and their trainers. I really loved this book for it's ease of understanding and I think people will also find the history of dog training section very interesting. If you only buy one book for your training library this year I highly recommend this one. Happy Training! Marie in Maine

    Changed my relationship with my dog!

    I got this book as I realized I needed to change from compulsion based training to a more positive approach. I started reading everything that had to do with positive training. This isn't a "how to" book on clicker training so the subtitle is slightly deceiving but I still give this 5 stars. My dog and I have a much more relaxed relationship, she's not afraid when we are training any longer, she willingly works and tries her hardest. This book is wonderful!!!!!!!
