This book describes some of the naughty things that cats do and how to stop it with clicker training. The author loves clickers so if you want to take any of the advice in this book you had better get a clicker.

Good basic primer on positive reinforcement, but short on troubleshooting details: for instance, what if your cat begins getting nervous and fretful during training? When and how do you transition from always clicking and treating for a behavior to broadening the behavior to every day life?
Also, the suggestions for how to stop nipping and counter-surfing are good first-lines, but they don't tell you what to do if your cat doesn't mind double-sided tape, for instance.
This book is full of useful information on practical cat training and behavior modification. The author doesn't spend much time explaining how operant and classical conditioning work, focusing instead on their real-life application. So, this would be a great, easy read for anyone interested in having fun with their cat or changing obnoxious habits through positive reinforcement techniques.
Very helpful! Best of the cat training books that I read - enough so that I decided to purchase a copy. Now on to train Moses, Millie, and Moxie...
Trying out the training now!
