I had know idea about clicker training until a friend told me about it. I am so happy i did a little research and stumbled upon this little treasure. This guide teaches you step by step on how to train your dog through a clicker. I love this non violent and positive way of teaching the dog to do exactly what i want it to do. Great for anyone that has a dog that is out of control or a new born puppy!

As the owner of a new puppy, I have found The Wonder of Clicker Training to be an invaluable resource. Prior to purchasing this book, I had never tried any type of animal training. I’d heard about the effectiveness of clicker training, but I wasn’t quite sure how the processed worked or if I’d even be able to master it. This book did a great job of breaking everything down for me. It presented a nice overview of what clicker training is and the mechanics behind it. It went into detail on how to utilize clicker training to illicit the behaviors I am looking for. The tone and style of the book is casual but still very professional. The writer does a great job going into detail where necessary and explaining things thoroughly. I’ve only started clicker training with my dog, and I’m already seeing results. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to take up puppy training on their own.

I found this book to be very helpful. I have a 6 year old Border Collie/Sheltie mix and a year old Puggle. My BC mix is pretty well trained but she does have a barking problem. My Puggle does not listen very well at all. I had a clicker and they never responded to it. They both just ignored it. I just put it away and didn't think any more about it. When I was moving I came across the clicker and I decided to try it again. But I still had no success with it. I looked for some help and came across this book. The book has easy tips to make clicker training successful. I found it easy to read and follow. After reading this book I followed the instructions (especially the rewards) and I am starting to see some success. Since before the book I did not have any success I am pleased to see this. I will continue to follow the tips and instructions in this book. We are moving in the right direction.

Recently I got a new Chihuahua puppy that is one of the loves of my life. Like a little baby, I cuddle him dress him, feed him and play with him. The problem that I have had is how do I train him. He is so very tiny and a traditional obedience class surely would not be an effective method for him. Plus, he would be so very scared to be around larger puppies. I ran across this book during my research. It is the answer for me. Utilizing a small toy-like device to make a clicking sound that will associate good behavior with the sound for the dog provides a positive and gentle form of training. This method has been utilized for years with an abundance of documentation to demonstrate it's effectiveness. I recommend that anyone that has just acquired a new best friend or even those that have an old furry friend that just has not been trained appropriately get this book and read it. I checked with my vet and he says that the clicker method of training is actually one of the most humane and successful methods for training your furry friend. This book even describes the type of treat that you should utilize when using the treat/clicker method. I will not go into any more details as that surely would not be fair to the author. Have fun, enjoy your puppy and please use this book for guide to successful training!

We have a dog that was never trained so when I came across this book, I was intrigued. I had never heard of clicker training so I bought the book and read it. All in all it was a great read, giving me new perspectives on how to train our notoriously stubborn dog. I haven’t started clicker training our dog yet, but thanks to this book I will be able to go about it methodically and hopefully get my dog trained!

Recently I was asked to help my friend train her dogs. She wanted a method that would not hurt the dogs, but she also wanted something that worked. We found "The Wonder of Clicker Training". It offer many great tips and tricks to help us train the dogs. Almost immediately, you could already see the difference in how they would behave. This book is not only a how-to on using this method. It also talks about the history of how this method came to be. I loved that the comparison between this method and the methods that are still being used from training marine animals. This book is great for anyone that wants to be able to train their pet in a way that is safe for the animal.
