The little book and cards are fantastic.
M. Henry
He is more of the dog he can be as a result and you will be proud of both yourself and your dog as you both achieve the learning of each task!

The clicker is nicely constructed as well.

The book is the heart of this package and it's simple, friendly, easy to read, and covers everything. It spends more pages than it needs to on selling you on the idea of clicker training: the whole first and last chapters, and periodic paragraphs in between throughout. Maybe some people need to be reassured more than they need to be taught how to do it, but I found it a little unnecessary. Even so, it's a brief book you can get through in a few hours and yet it has everything you need to begin clicker training.

The quick start cards are in some ways more handy since they get right to the point. They are necessarily brief, and I wonder if some people might be tempted to work just from them and thus end up frustrated since they don't explain some of the finer points. But even if you did go just from the card you could likely do pretty well as they do cover the important details.

The clicker is a little large and doesn't have as crisp a sound as the other one we bought, but it's quite serviceable. The bag of treats is perfunctory; it's not enough to do anything, and they might as well not have included it.

This package will definitely get you started on clicker training and give you everything you need (other than buying more high-quality treats!) to get good results. Clicker training works. (However, I would still recommend a basic obedience class first: clicker training builds on the basics rather than replacing them.)

This is such a nice "starter set" for learning how to train your dog (horses and other critters are mentioned as well). Each new task is broken down for you in workable parts so that the task, overall, can be learned easily by your dog as well as by you! Yes, you need to know how to be a good teacher for your very best friend in the world!

The set includes a nice clicker that is not too high-pitched or too loud so that it will not scare your darling friend. Yes, I got a couple of other clickers that were larger, really loud and high pitched such that it actually scared my sensitive buddy! Karen Pryor also has a nice set of 5 even smaller clickers at a very low price here on the Amazon site. Get them if you don't already have a few extra clickers so that you can keep them everywhere around thehouse wherever you go as well as one for your pocket when you go out of the house with your dog.

The "Help Cards" are sturdy as well as attractive. These help to "remind" you of the steps and each facet of the training that you will have to do to help you as well as your friend to master each task. She makes it so easy.

There is a small bag of tiny treats included (about 100 or so) to get you started. You need to figure out the "level" of treats that you want to use to train your dog. They go from "high" to "low" value. Basically, for simpler tasks and steps, you will use "low" value treats for training. Something your pal likes and will do the trick for the "usual" training sessions. However, there will be times that "high" value treats (hot dog pieces, beef stick pieces, or even a toy that your dog really loves to play with) will be needed when you want to train your dog to do more complex tasks and to keep her attention throughout the process.

This book is easy to understand, cards are a great reference, clicker is small enough to hold in hand with leash. I would recommend any time.

this was purchased as a new method of training both puppy and adult dogs I have as pets
Good all around purchase.

I have a 13 year old son, and this is a great kit for us to work together with for our dogs.
The treats are well received by all the dogs. Need to get more :)

I got a clicker when I attended a training class at a large pet food chain. I wanted another so I got this one with the book. The little book and cards are fantastic. They explain the reasoning behind clicking and make it really easy to follow. I have been getting much better results after having read the book.

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I am an older (used to be professional dog trainer/groomer/and showed frequently) and I am learning a lot from this kinder gentler way of teaching my dog. I only wish it had come with an option for more clickers because the one that came with the book has been misplaced (grandkids) and the new clickers I bought at the pet store have a different sound that took the dogs a few days to recognize well.

This is a great gift for anyone with a puppy.

The training guide is informative and the training cards are sturdy and portable for training anywhere. The clicker is nicely constructed as well.

This is a great product for someone having trouble training their dog, My 12 week old border collie mix picked up on the concept extremely fast and has been easy to train ever since.
