Great Info for beginners to intermediate, May 22, 2010
Reviewer: Pawsitively Healthy
This was a fabulous book. A great reference with the question and answer format for people who really need an answer to that burning question, NOW. The information was itself was also spot on. I found there were some things that could be expanded upon but for anyone new to clicker training it would be a brilliant place to start. Even those who have been clicker training for a while would find some good information. Also a great way to summarize when people ask you questions, sometimes describing why we train the way we do can be difficult and this book has simplified some of the more complex notions to make it easier to understand.
 
Short, sweet, to the point; Loved the format, August 9, 2008
Reviewer: Crystal Saling
I loved the format. Melissa Alexander is a writer after my own heart- she keeps things to the point, getting a lot of information in a short amount of space. I loved the fact that you could just look up any question you had about clicker training, and there the answer would be- no extra words to filter out. I read this book immediately after attending my first clicker expo. I really recommend reading it just before or just after having a professional physically teaching it to you, but its a good read even if that's not possible.
 
good info, awkward format, September 28, 2007
Reviewer: RUTH
I thought that this book was great. I love all the answers that it gives to commonly asked clicker training questions. It really helped me sharpen up my explanations to people about clicker training. Every time I read it, I learn something new that I can use to improve my dog's skills but also my instructor skills. Although it does have great information and a great index and cross reference, the format is a little awkward making the book a little unenjoyable.
