Book 14: Clicker Training by Katharina Schlegl Kofler

I picked up this book at the library. And the next week, I saw Dogwise was carrying it also.

Parts of it are really well done. There's a few pages on exercises to do without your dog! The importance of timing! A great format and excellent photos.

The biggest drawback is that it was originally published in German and the translation was NOT done well. There are inconsistencies in language throughout and the rough translation makes it hard to read at times.

Later on, there are a few recommendations for punishment for some types training situations.

It's not something I'm going to purchase or recommend. Without the bit about punishment and with a better translation however.... it could be a great, easily accessible, and well-done product. Again, the photos and outline are great. It seems that most of the photos are not stock photos and were taken specifically for this book.
