Format: Paperback
Compared to a few other books on the topic this is without a doubt by far the best book available for a day-to-day use training a puppy or an adult dog. Why? For three reasons:

First, there is only a minimum of information on the theoretical foundations of clicker training, as much as you need, really. On only a very few occasions one could argue that Tillman omits vital information. For example, the term "intermittent schedule" pops up somewhere with no explanation whatsoever (as far as I can see). Since she points out, right from the beginning, that this is NOT about theory but about practice, and since there are important names of books and/or authors mentioned within some chapters and especially at the end in the reference section you find everything you need if you feel the need for a more thourough theoretical basis.

Second, each chapter and each section within a chapter describes in a very comprehensive way an aspect of clicker training in the first part, or one of numerous exercises and their built up in the second half. Not always necessary, but overall definitely enhancing the goal to make the access to clicker training easy for everyone are illustrations accompanying each exercise. Some of the charts and tables, I dare say, are indispensible as copies in your daily training sessions.

Third, the book's editor is one of the "founding mothers and fathers" of clicker training, Karen Pryor whose "Don't shoot the dog" is all you need to read about the theory behind clicker training. Pryor, probably aware of the fact that dog owners might not find her book too easily applicable, praises this book enthusiastically ("This book is a great answer to any perplexed dog owner who is willing to give clicker training a try.

This is an easy to follow guide to beginners of clicker training. Learning is fun for both owner and dog. This book I found ideal for the dog owner and it also covers problems that dog owners may come across with their dogs. So if you are looking for a simple easy to follow guide to clicker training this is the one for you!

Format: Paperback
Yup - in just a few minutes Tara, my tiny, nervous Labrador, was enjoying playing this new game.

The 'Click' is an instant communication of "Yes!" to a dog. It goes straight into the brain with no verbal processing:
1. 'Click' - a simple message that "Yes - you've just done exactly what I want!"
2. Say the command you want the dog to learn
3. Reward shortly afterwards.

Tillman gives a series of practical, cartoon illustrated exercises that you can get going with straight away. Lots of peripheral advice also on how crates can calm a dog, and also diet etc. (It has worked well with Tara).

Tara is now 'doing her business' on command. Puppies as young as 10 weeks can be taught this trick as a fast-track way of house-training.

Recommended for all dog owners!

Very easy to read and understand. Gives you step by step instructions on how to clicker train. The only downside to this book is the treat reccommendations. Raisins and grapes are poisonous to dogs, and a lot of the other treats contained wheat flour, which a lot of dogs are intollerant too. I would have thought the author would know this and not suggest using treats that can cause your dog harm. Worth reading if you want to get into clicker training, just skip the food section!

A great book, easy to dip in and out as you need to, its clear and logical with easy pictures and instructions to follow. It covers basic training and also some of the more common and easy to solve behavioural problems seen in dog, such as attention barking.
A great introduction to positive training methods.. more books please..

The things taught are fairly basic. Some good ideas, and although I understand the concept that you can click to teach anything your imagination allows, I would still like some help in that department. Probably wont use as much as I thought I would based on the reviews.
