I'm sorry. I just realized you already told me that. I'm only on my first cup of joe. Forgive me. Yeah, I have a feeling I should buy in bulk and have a clicker in every room and five in my car. I'm notoriously bad at losing small objects. I will be the one pulling five clickers out of one coat pocket from the winter before going 'THAT'S where I put those!' lol

Have you found all box clickers to be the same? I've seen them on Ebay sold 4 for like 2bucks...can't beat that...I have to question the quality though...? Do you have one you prefer?

Haha! now that's an interesting thought...

I hadn't thought of what Gator mentioned--but I can def foresee situations where a louder clicker would be a must.

Snapple cap is a neat idea..wouldn't think it'd be loud enough though (I seem to be stuck on that)

DobbyDad Curious how you use in protection? Could you expand on this.

GatorDog I get my dogs all worked up for certain parts of training, so the loud ones help. I use it in protection too and that definitely needs to be loud lol

I like the Starmarks for sensitive border collie man for the opposite reason!

Aha, that makes sense. I never thought about that, because my dogs are all quiet (living in a city condo has made me particularly sensitive to potentially annoying the neighbors with loud dogs, so I always discourage excessive vocalization and my guys have learned to be quiet while training) and Pongu used to be so sound-sensitive that he'd flee the room if I clicked at him, even when the clicker was muffled by putting it inside a balled-up sock.

So for me, having a quieter click was actually something of a plus. But mainly I like the Starmark because the shape of it fits comfortably in my hand.

(Also, yes, I am totally with you guys on not wanting dog food in my mouth. I am, and have always been, completely mystified by people who have the ability to spit food at their dogs. I know it works, and can work really well, but... I can't do it. Even when it's leftovers from my own meals, I still just can't do it. Total mental block.)
