Lots of people like that book - I couldn't get through it. Very boring to me.

There is also a book out there called Purely Postive by Shirely Booth that isn't bad. Ihaven't read the Miller book.

It took me some time to go back and re read some parts that I did not get right away.I blamed it on my English rather than the writting style, more chances for my English to be the problem! :oops:
I found the one written by Pat Miller a bit more "smooth" although I liked both.

I'm so glad you like it. My husband and I really liked it too. The way Miller writes, it's like she's right there in person, talking to you and explaining things to you.
I haven't read the Karen Pryor book, but Pat Miller uses Pryor's same methods, so it probably doesn't matter which book you read. Anyway, keep us updated on how clicker training works out for you. (And you can ignore my request under the "clicker training" thread; I didn't know you started this thread until after I posted on the other one.) :thumbsup:

Red - Did you read the Miller book? I just loved it! Our friends are getting a puppy in the spring and I'm going to buy them a copy of that book. :))
