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.

Review:

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
