Clicker Training For Obedience

This is an excellent introductory guide to clicker training, with very clear instructions. Clicker training is a reward-based method for training dogs, which relies on 'clicks' to communicate with the dog. It is a technique that is based on operant conditioning theories, and it can give rapid results - either because dogs understand it easily, or because it forces owners to think about what messages they are sending their dogs! Karen Pryor is another fan of operant conditioning, and her 'Don't Shoot the Dog' is perhaps more useful for people with more experience, because she deals with behavioural issues in greater depth, and helps owners to choose solutions that best suit them. However, if you want a clear-cut, 'how to' book, this is the one for you.
