The best obediance training book I've used., September 10, 1999 By Mary Beam (Brookville, Ohio USA)
This review is from: Clicker Training for Obedience: Shaping Top Performance-Positively (Paperback) I live with and train
Smooth Fox Terriers, considered by many to be one of the hardest breeds to train in obedience. Since I started using the
methods suggested in this book, I've had tremendous success with my dogs. My oldest male, who earned his CD during my pre
clicker training period, after much hard, frustrating work, learned "go out, sit" in 3 short, fun, easy lessons. And, he learned to
love to retrieve his dumb bell, finding what others call the "forced retrieve" to be one of his favorite games. And, that is the key.
Having fun while learning.The dog who has fun learning a behavior will carry that behavior over into daily life, and, for me and
my dogs, Clicker Training for Obedience is helping us achieve just that. It helped me create a training program that is fun for us
all.The presentation of each segment for training a behavior is such that a trainer new to training can follow along and achieve
success.I highly recommend this...

Very detailed explanations & very useful ..., June 1, 2001 By Yeoh Siok Kee (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
  This review is from: Clicker Training for Obedience: Shaping Top Performance-Positively (Paperback) This book ought to be
read together with Ms. K.Pryor's `Don't Shoot the Dog' ... Ms.Pryor's explains the theory and how 'clicker' training had its
beginnings ... Mr. Spector explains how 'clicker' training is done ...Having read most of the clicker books sold by Amazon and
now into my first year of training my Beagle & Labrador ... I think this is probably the best so far ... Certainly this book contains
the most detailed explanations & instructions as to how 'clicker' should be carried out. Mr. Spector even goes so far as to
explain why he uses certain words and expressions in his book ... To derive the best benefit, this book has to be read carefully
(and its a substantial book) ...The book opens with an introduction to operant and positive reinforcement training methods, and
makes a comparison between these 'newer' training styles and the more traditional training methods.Drawing from his own
experience, Mr. Spector then suggests the various stages of training...

Even my dog loves this book, January 8, 2000 By A Customer
This review is from: Clicker Training for Obedience: Shaping Top Performance-Positively (Paperback) I'm one of those
obsessive types. Before I got my dog I read tons of books about raising and training them. I only wish I had found this one first.
Every other book I read focused on what I was doing and how I was doing it. Morgan Spector makes you understand that the
key is in the dog -- which when you think about makes sense. Even though I have no intention of competing with her, I know
that the most important things are being accomplished with the help of this book. Most obviously, she has been invited to visit
my parents because her manners have improved so dramatically thanks to this book and its techniques. Don't hesitate -- if you
aren't comfortable yelling at your dog, Morgan Spector is for you. By the way, you can theoretically clicker train anything, so this
book can help you with recalcitrant cats, children, and husbands too.
