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... 62 of 62 people found the following review helpful 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' ...

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.
