Gail Fisher s grasp of all subject matter pertaining to clicker training shines through in this book! It is obvious that she is a been there-done that crossover clicker trainer, understands the needs of someone who wants to make the switch, and can hold the trainer s hand throughout the process. The Thinking Dog is a great refresher course for the experienced clicker trainer too. --Corally Burmaster, founder and editor of The Clicker Journal
The Thinking Dog offers a wonderfully thoughtful guide to clicker training. Written with the more traditional trainer in mind, Gail Fisher s long experience and hard-won wisdom shine through in her logical approach. Clear explanations, practical exercises, and lovely real life examples (including photos) make for a refreshing treatment of clicker training. I highly recommended this book to all thinking trainers who share with Fisher her delight in watching a dog s mind turn on. The Thinking Dog is my new favorite clicker training book! --Suzanne Clothier, author of Bones Would Rain from the Sky

She really enjoys the clicker too because it's immediate feedback on how she's doing and she knows a bite of chicken is following. I quickly switched to baking chicken and chopping into bite-size pieces because good quality treats are ridiculously expensive. I prep several 4 oz bags so there's always one ready when I want to do a little training.
This winter we were on the road in an RV and I decided I needed a new (Rescue) dog for company walking in the desert. I loved how the clicker training worked for previous dog, so bought the ebook edition. It brought back all the techniques that I had forgotten. This rescue dog is 8 years old, had had no previous training so it took all the hints in the book to get him on track. It's been only 2 months that I've had him, but he does all the basics reliably. I was glad to have the book because in the beginning he had no clue what training was, and my last dog was so easy.
I would also recommend to anyone who lives where they can take a course to do so, and then rely on the book for reminders. There are so many subtleties in clicker training.
