The Click That Does The Trick - book review

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

by Robin Deutsch

Clicker training all sorts of different animals has become very popular over the last few years. There are several books out on clicker training dogs, but The Click That Does The Trick by Robin Deutsch give instructions and ideas for clicker training birds.

Robin starts off with the basics understanding your bird, how birds may interpret the training process and how to use the clicker in training.

Robin indicates that the first step is to condition your bird to the clicker. After that you can start training simple tricks. Robin gives several suggestions for tricks and for each one she indicates how easy or complicated it is as well as the size of bird that it will work best for.

When first introducing a new trick, Robin tells us that each small step must be rewarded. She stresses that it is very important that every training session ends on a happy note.

Some of the tricks require props, so Robin then gives instructions on how to make these props.

Time and patience are a requirement whenever you set out to train your bird. If you have the time and patience and want to spend some quality time with your bird, you will find great ideas to help you in this book.
