I think the best book by far on clicker training is Dont shoot the dog
written by Karen Pyror.
Do try to get your hands on this book. It is not a dry academic book talking of mere techniques. Techniques without the understanding behind the techniques will never work in the long run.
In clicker training, you must have fun. If you do not have the fun, you will have the fear. And sadly that will be as detrimental to your beastie or birdie as yourself.
The postings that I did earlier this month, and the URLs embedded within, will give you a very good picture what to expect in clicker training.

Clicker training is easy. Even more easy than what I wrote of it to be, and a lot more fun for you than you imagine.
Just take it slowly. And enjoy that journey. The journey is as much if not more than the destination.
Hope you will enjoy this report as well even if it contained photos of a camera in ghastly shade of pink.
And the videos and recordings of the shama competition at Bishan 23 April.
