The mighty pen

dog with pen

Do you feel as comfortable with a pen as you do with a clicker? If you like to write, enter our training recipe contest. The winning article will be published here at clickertraining.com (including author byline and bio blurb with a link to your own website or other self-promotion). It's a great chance for you to show your stuff. The winner will also receive a $25 gift certificate to the clickertraining.com store.

The contest topic is How to Train "Give"—that is, teaching a dog to release something he's holding in his mouth. Articles should be between 800-1,200 words in length and contain concrete training steps. Your readers may or may not be familiar with various clicker training terminology, so do not assume too much knowledge. Training techniques must be 100% clicker-based, all-positive training. Photos are not necessary, but are a plus.

To enter, send your article as a Word document attachment to writingcontest [at] clickertraining [dot] com (writing submissions) by April 4, 2008.

We look forward to hearing from you!
