Author’s Note: If you are serious about learning clicker training, this is a good place to start. Treat the articles the way you would a “how-to” book and .....gasp.... actually do the projects. The quickest way to fail at this very easy-to-learn method is to .....another gasp.... spend your time thinking and not bothering to actually do anything. There is nothing in here that can’t be duplicated with a little bit of time and commitment. I had already clicker trained several thousand dogs before I ever began writing instructions. If your dog doesn’t adapt instantly, get someone else’s dog and plunge ahead. When your skills develop, you can come back and teach your dog in a setting where there is only one true beginner -- your dog. ...Gary Wilkes
