I've been using it consistently for about 8 months, and it shows no wear at all. I got two when I purchased them, and I have yet to use the second one.
The one downside? It doesn't come with a wrist strap. Sure, they're cheap and easy to find, but it's still stupid that it doesn't come with one.
In the picture is a Box clicker on the left, a very soft muted clicker in the middle (from Petco), and a StarMark on the left. The StarMark DOES NOT come with the wrist strap pictured.
Pro: Nice loud "Click!" I can see this being good for outdoors (since it is so loud) or for very excitable dogs that need that extra loud noise to take notice or for super hyper puppies.
Con: But you need to press fairly firmly. With a treat in my hand and trying to signal the dog trick, sometimes I don't click it right on cue as you are suppose to encourage positive behavior. For younger kids or older adults, the hand pressure may be too much and the click will be delayed which might result in your dog becoming confused.
Most importantly, if you have a shy, jumpy or easily startled dog, this clicker may be just a tad too loud. Before I can settle a training routine, the abrupt loud clicks sent my little one away. I tested another clicker at the pet store and it was slightly quieter than this and more comfortable to the ear I guess. lol. (Even my family found the loud click a little too annoying.)
By the way, I didn't know this product is NOT returnable. I ended up putting electrical tape around it to try and muffle the sound since I can't return it. I hope this review helps other doggy parents whose pups have the same temperament.
all in all, it's working really well with my 1 year old Standard Poodle male.
Even the 15 year old Smooth fox terrier gets up and comes over when he hears it bc he's starting to associate it w treats.
I've even been able to teach him the difference between a quiet speak (shh) and a loud speak (SPEAK) using this clicker. I've got his full attention... usually.
Still working on distraction i.e.; Dad and tv on etc. So need to back up a little.
I wasn't so sure about paying for a noise maker. Especially since I've had horses and can make the click noise w my mouth... But, it's an "at Attention" kind of thing. I still click w my teeth when I don't have the clicker on me to be consistent. But this is It!
A reviewer suggested taking it apart and putting some paper towel padding in there to lower the volume at first. Tried that, several ways, but it either stopped it from clicking or didn't muffle the sound. A second reviewer suffgested wrapping some duck tape around it to muffle the holes the sound comes out of, again didn't help. Yet a third reviewer suggested holding it backwards, so the button was toward the palm to muffle the sound, yet I was not able to make the button click that way (it's not a hair trigger button) it just dug into the fleshy part of my palm below my thumb, it's too big to hold any other way.
Now I can see how the loud sound CAN be useful, if you are doing training farther away (like agility) where the dog is moving and making his own noise, he'd be able to hear this well. It would work perfect for that. But for a starting clicker used up close, it was a no go for me.
Which is disappointing to me as the size is perfect to hold, button is easy to push, yet located so it won't have accidental pocket clicking. Really like the design and keeping it in the hopes some day my dog will be doing training at a longer distance and I can try it again.
I guess my next step is to try another style, that I've heard has the problem of pocket clicking when you move, but is quieter.
So I rated it 3 stars because it's a good size and may be perfect for those who want a louder sound. But could not rate it any higher as it's not a beginner dog confidence builder.
