    Flat buckle collar
    Standard 6' lead (sometimes handling a long line can get tricky)
    A tug toy (if you plan to use a game if tug as a reward/ train in drive)
    A planner- to record what you will do, in what steps AND what your progress is each session. I like to say a dog is reliable (knows what to do) only after 10 successful repetitions in a row- over multiple sessions, not just one)
    Consistency amongst ALL humans who will work with your dog
    Sense of humour
    Patience

    Ummm... Also, clickers can all sound different. I'd strongly advise charging only one clicker, and using that one at least in the beginning. Someone else on here who uses clicker training regularly might disagree and/ or offer better advice there.

    Oh! And treats for the treat pouch. Make sure you have a variety of uber, super, high value and 'normal' treats in there.

    Yep. Anything you can use to record steps, progress, future plans. I'll have a google after work to see if I can find any online- saves hassle.

    @Lala... That list isn't actually very long. And yes, that would be my basic kit.

    I agree with the clicker.......... 7 clickers could be very confusing....i actually think that specific clicker training training by several people is confusing, timing is such a person specific thing. In specific early training here at home. Either hubby or I pick the dog. Only the basics of good manners is done by both of us or anyone else and that does require consistency from everyone. Once the new dog has some of basic's instilled we both do it and we get anyone else to give it a go, if and only if we want the dog to work for more then one person.
    Practicing timing with the clicker is good to do.....I teach that by throwing objects and getting a student to click when it hits the ground. I often do it totally unexpected and different items that have different ways of dropping. It is a good way to practice without confusing a dog. And learning on a proofed dog, when I ask the dog and get the person to click with a different clicker........Some of my dogs now only use the clicker when we are training new stuff, so they cope quite qell with it. And they seem to know they are teaching

    yeah I understand maybe I should of said that the extra clickers are only going to be used after I the dog has lent the basics with me ...

    like "come" then I was going to do this Dog Training - How to get your dog to come back when called 2 - YouTube

    with my family and the extra clickers this is because me and OH live in syd but my family lives in the hunter valley and there's 5 of them
    so I want my dog to come back to all of them its a big property I want them to be able to call the dog back if there's danger like calling it off a kanga or leave my dog with them if me and my OH go away on holidays and Can't take the dog I would reather it stay somewhere where it will be treated right
