Finally - a clicker training book for conformation Jun 13, 2008
It's hard to know how the author got so much information into a slender volume. I knew a bit about clicker training and a bit about conformation but never felt confident or natural with either. The author does a great job of explaining how to train to show and how to actually show all based on positive training. Five clicks on the clicker from me.
