If you're just starting out in clicker training, you've got lots of questions. And I bet I know what most of them are. They're the questions experienced clicker trainers and teachers hear over and over from clients, students, and friendsâ€¦ "Why can't I just use my voice?"

Peggy Tillman has had an extraordinary career, with her husband Barry Tillman, as one of the pioneers in the science of ergonomics: designing machines and environments so that they fit, physically and behaviorally, with human beings. They have authored two leading texts in the field, handbooks liberally laced with Peggy Tillman's computer drawings. Peggy's drawings-behaviorally sensitive, often truly beautiful, and always highly informative-are the heart of Clicking with your Dog.

While I have read all the great reviews, this book still managed to exceed my high expectations. "Clicker Training for Obedience" provides clear, concise instructions. If you are even remotely interested in clicker training, you MUST buy this book. I have seen not only great success with my dog, but also a dog that looks forward to training. I cannot say enough good things about the "Clicker Training for Obedience".
