In the beginning, we didn't know much about dog training, let alone clicker training. just youtube it. there are great videos explaining what it is, how to do it, and why it's so beneficial for you and your dog!
that being said, this is a great clicker. i never tried the cheaper versions so can't compare to that. but this one does feel great in your hand, provides a great 'click', easy to press. we didn't find it too loud (not at all) as others have mentioned.
i'd say a must have for dog owners.
