Still alive and well. Every now and then I know it's kind of hard to tell but I'm still alive and well.

I'm seeing some good answers to your request for information about clicker training. If you're not getting them, there might be something wrong with your newsreader. There's tons of information on the web too. Have you tried googling? And there are books on the subject. (I like the Morgan Specter one.) I'm hoping you can see this message. (I love clicker training and recommend it wherever I can.) Another possibility on why you're not getting the answer that you want is that clicker training is a huge subject. In a lot of ways, clicker training is just regular dog training based on rewards, but there are a few differences, gimmicks perhaps, that make it more fun. People might be reluctant to rewrite whole books of information on usenet. Instead, we lead to you to sources we like.

Why? I like it, too, but I don't think it's a very good general introduction or particularly useful for people who are interested primarily in pet-level obedience. It's generally well-written and clear, though.

You're right that it tends towards the wordy, technical, agility crowd more than the pet-level, problem-solving one. Maybe I like it because it was the right book for me at the right time. I had so many troubles with Cubbe when we first got her, I sought help from this group. As you can imagine, I was inundated with conflicting opinions when I needed something clear, simple and authoritative. When I heard of clicker training, I thought it would be some sort of cure-all and was devestated when, hardly knowing what I was doing, it didn't work on first bounce.

Of course, I was doing it all wrong but didn't know that at the time. So someone recommended the Specter book, and it answered my questions in the tecnical fashion that I needed. I had a basic introduction and needed to get straightened out on the particulars. The Specter book did that for me.

That's why I was at first hesitant to answer the question. But then when she started begging, I gave it a shot. :}
