Expanded Description:

Click your way to better obedience scores!
The retrieve is one of the most difficult skills for most dogs to master in competitive obedience. It is difficult because it involves a long series of steps that the dog must learn in order to retrieve the object successfully. More and more trainers are realizing that teaching a complex series of behaviors like this is most easily done through the use of clicker training – using the same techniques used by large animal trainers working with whales, dolphins and elephants.

The Clicked Retriever teaches you step-b-step how to clicker train your dog to do a solid, enthusiastic and reliable retrieve. Learning no-force techniques builds trust between you and your dog, makes training more enjoyable for both of you and sets you up for life long training success built on scientific principles, respect and fun.

The Clicked Retriever
• Gives you one of the best explanations of how to clicker train ever written.
• Helps you understand why clicker training techniques can improve you dog’s obedience scores and consistency.
• Teaches you how to train complex behaviors by breaking them down into more easily trainable segments – and then shows you how to link or “chain” them together to perform the skill.
• Shows you how to apply retrieving skills to other activities such as flyball and service dog training.

Lana Mitchell is a pioneer in utilizing clicker training for competitive obedience, herding and conformation. Her clicker trained dogs have achieved High in Trial awards in both obedience and herding. After she started training with a click in the 1990s, Lana taught conformation and obedience workshops around the country with Karen Pryor and Gary Wilkes. Currently Lana competes in AKC obedience and herding trials, teaches clicker training classes and workshops for obedience, conformation and herding and is a regular contributor to the Clicker Journal. She lives in Louisville, KY with her Australian Shepherd, “Nemo” and her retired cutting horse, “Ky.”

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
Written by professional dog trainer Lana Mitchell, who has helped pioneer clicker training since the 1990s and achieved High In Trial awards in both obedience and herding, The Clicked Retriever is a straightforward guide to using the clicker in retrieval training, one of the more complex types of training a dog can undergo because of its many steps. Chapters discuss how to build trust with one's dog without using force, training basics, retrieval basics, how to impress and strengthen the chain of retrieval steps, turning, holding and carrying, the directed retrieve, scent articles, and much more. Though written especially for dog show and dog obedience handlers, The Clicked Retriever is also ideal for anyone interested in teaching a hunting dog useful behaviors, or even ordinary pet owners who want to instruct their dog to play "fetch" rather than "tug of war". The Clicked Retriever even demonstrates how to apply retrieving skills to such activities as Flyball and service dog training. A superb, step-by-step pet trainer's manual. James A. Cox

DOGWORLD

First published in 1997, this new edition is jammed with training tips and step-by-step instructions. If you are new to clicker training, you will reap the benefits of the author's extensive knowledge of the art and science behind this training method... A glossary of clicker training terms is included at the end of the section, and the well-organized and detailed table of contents serves as the book's index... Even if you choose not to use a clicker, The Clicked Retriever is a valuable resource for your bookshelf. Terry Long

A must for any retrieve work!, July 13, 2006
Reviewer: Wes Anderson APDT member
Whether you are new to retrieve or need a “tune up” this is the book! Lana uses a detailed step by step guide with pictures that takes the mystery out of retrieving. I used Lana’s book instead of the “traditional method” everyone else in my class used and came out with an excellent retrieve. If you use a clicker or positive methods this book should be on your shelf.
 
Easy to follow, April 3, 2006
Reviewer: Tami Hawes
The directions are easy to follow. Explains Clicker training and why you want to use it. What I absolutely love in a training book - step by step directions on how to get the behavior. I'd love more on troubleshooting issues but as Lana points out not every dog will do the same thing so it would be difficult to come up with all the solutions for issues that may arise during the training.

I like also how Lana applies the retrieve to other sports like flyball.

I don't have an AKC dog but I can take what I've learned here and apply it to UKC, ASCA and others and get titles on my crossbred dogs.

We also loved having Lana as a guest author for this book January 2006 at CSDogBookReview - check out our archives of her visit!

Raves for Clicked Retriever, March 3, 2006
Reviewer: Gina Hayes, IACP Professional
I had a brand new employee, who had no previous experience with clicker work, read and use Lana's work with a 5 year old non retrieving mixed breed. Here is what she wrote:
This book is clearly for people who want to train their dogs in AKC obedience retrieves. The initial information and descriptions of clicker training are clear and answer questions in the reader's mind in a very logical way. The breakdown of each task into simple steps is helpful. If an owner wants the average dog to just retrieve an item for play, this method can be adapted to this desired task. By the fourth training session with my dog who had no desire to retrieve anything and no previous clicker training, we both made progress. There is certainly some coordination required when starting clicker work. This dog who is very food motivated, began recognizing the signs of a training session and was anxious to begin. By the end of the fourth training session, she was beginning to bring the toy to me for the reward. I highly recommend this book to any new clicker or retrieve dog owners!
