Overcoming Fear Of The Clicker Very important if you have a sound sensitive dog.  Believe me, it’s not fun to watch the dog run away the first time you click.

  1. Love the podcast, it’s going great!

    I maintain that I can sort of kind of tell the difference between the viscose rayon on a cone I’ve been using since I learned to weave, that everyone has tons of (umm I should check the brand on that) and the bambu 7 that Yarns has only had a year or so, which is a similar weight. I don’t care if it’s made from bamboo, it’s a smoother, nicer rayon. And actually softer than tencel, even if tencel is better for the environment.

    A ball point pen or a kids “bug clicker” was the only thing that worked with Chance as far as clicker training goes.
