Thanks for all the input going to be picking one up end of the week when I can make a trip into town.
I do appreciate all the suggestions on form factor

I accidentally clicked one too close to my Golden Retriever once and it made her not like the clicker, so I had to desensitize her to it by muffling it and hiding it at first until she was comfortable with it again. So if anyone has a dog that could be scared/startled by the noise be aware that this type can be quite loud, and you may want to muffle it. I never had to with my Shepherd though, the noise didn't bother her.

I like the iclick with the wrist band, not in the way but easy to quickly click.

I've had it for 5 years.

I mostly just use the inexpensive box style clickers, many of mine I got for free as promotional materials or from trainers. If the click is too loud or annoying, I layer cloth medical tape over the metal part (on the side you don't push on) to muffle it until the noise is right. They're plentiful so I can keep them in different locations and have them handy whenever I need one.
I usually use a clicker with a wrist strap if I'm going to be doing an actual training session. The strap is the perfect length so when it's hanging from my wrist and I need to click it is right where I can grab it and click the clicker quickly. The shape of the box clicker makes it easy to get the clicker into the right place for me to click it quickly.
Oddly enough the strap I use for my clickers was actually a part of a planner I had years ago that was dog themed and the front had a strip around it like a collar, with this strap hanging from it like a mini leash. It just happened to be the perfect size of lightweight clasp and be the perfect length to use as a wrist strap for a clicker. I wish I had more, if I ever lose it I will really miss it as I haven't actually found any other wrist straps that I like near as much as that!
I do have a ClickerPlus as well which is an interesting tool because it is electronic and makes several different sounds, but I have hardly ever used it. I'm not sure if these are actually still being sold, this is what it is: Digital Clicker Plus +

|Crocky||Thanks, will do. I used only verbal markers before with my girl Kesler so thought i would give the clicker a try this time around.|

I like the Starmark clicker. It just has a nice smooth feel in my hand. I put it on a wrist loop (the keychain kind that looks like a soft plastic Slinky) so I can drop it in and out of my hand easily.
Try a bunch of different ones in the store, see what fits easily in your grip and feels comfortable. The tiny differences in the sounds they make don't matter, it's really a comfort choice.

Ironically the one posted from petsmart is one i saw today but the clicker did not click. The only one they had so I passed of course.
I will take a look at the other one suggested as well
