Clicker Training Experts -- Best YouTube Video Recommendations?

Clicker training experts, what are your absolute favorite free YouTube videos that instruct on proper use of clicker training techniques?

I've always trained with a different method, but I want to try training my blind dog with a clicker. I understand the basic theory of it with charging the clicker with treats, marking and treating. However, I would like your recommendations on really great videos demonstrating novice exercises or techniques you think are fabulous.

The videos don't need to involve blind dogs -- I can make adjustments. (I am already familiar with many of the videos from the Japanese trainer who had the blinddogtraining.com site (and I like her a lot--though I wish she'd put her site back up, as it was great).)

Wow, good for you for working with your dog...

Best would be recommendations from the best clicker trainers and wander around their sites.

Bunch of them are on Intro to Clicker Training (perfect for puppies!)

As a full time professional (certified) clicker trainer (Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner), I would like to recommend some of my own articles on Animal Info Publications: Clicker Training. What is it?

You can start with the introduction to clicker training and proceed to the article on How to Get Started and How to Teach Your Dog a Simple Behavior to a new one which was just uploaded about How to Teach a Dog to Sit Using Clicker Training. The article about how to get started includes an instructional video, as does the one on how to teach sit using clicker training.

Happy clicking!

Thanks for all these great suggestions! I look forward to going through them and learning from them.

With treats and praise alone, I'm already getting nice results working with Casper, so I'm looking forward to seeing if clicking will get even better results! He's taught me that blindness does not make him a "special needs" dog--he's a totally normal, active dog who happens to use different senses to perceive the world.

Dbqdogtrainer, I noticed recently that there's a Karen Pryor Academy certified affiliate in my city who works next door to my vet. I'm considering paying to consult with her to work on technique, since clicking is a new method for me. Can you tell me about the Karen Pryor program, since you are also part of that program?
