I do not use clicker training (yet), however it is the new craze at our training facility. They shared this website with all of us and so I thought I would share it with you. If this has already been discussed, than please disregard.

If you sign up, they will send a new lesson every day (I think). I just signed up today. I am sure they are trying to sell their books but the lessons seem to be good.

www.canisclickertraining.com

I am not recommending or condemning their product as I haven't read a whole lot of it yet. So if you like it or not let me know. My focus is elsewhere right now, I'm sure when the weather turns bad, I will investigate this a little more.

Ohhh! I know who that is just by the url address! It's Morton and Cecilie from Norway... they're AWESOME! I worked Quiz with them one year at Clicker Expo. They're TOP competitors in obedience, and their version of obedience is quite a bit harder than ours. Very nice people and very skillful clicker trainers.

They have an e-book that I've heard is really good. The lesson-a-day is a great introduction to clicker training; specifically using the clicker in shaping, which is what they do.

Thanks for sharing! I LOVE clicker training and the principles behind it. I recently read "Reaching the Animal Mind" by Karen Pryor, and I really recommend it! I think everyone should read that book!

Thanks again! I'm super excited :p:

I do some clickertraining. It is a lot of fun! I actually used a video lesson from those people to teach Mira her heel (or finish, place, whatever you call it). It was really good. Here is a clip of one part of it with Mira. You use a box to teach the dogs to move its back legs.

I do not have their book, but I have heard it is good.

I am sure you are going to have a blast! I want to hear all about it!
