You may have heard of clicker training, maybe even seen it on tv, but still wonder what the heck is a clicker and how does it relate to training your dog. Most of my clients in my group classes haven’t ever heard of clicker training. Some of them even come to class opposed to clicker training. Once they get a good look at what clicker training is, see how easy it is to do, and most importantly how fast they can teach their dog, they’re hooked. They frequently come back to me, asking “What can we teach next – this is too much fun!”
If you’re wondering about clicker training, this short video will help you get an idea of how clicker training works, and how you can start using it with your dog. Clicker training helps you teach your dog quickly and easily what you’d like him to do. For instance, if you have trouble with your dog jumping on visitors, teach him how to sit with the clicker. If your dog runs away if he gets out the door, teach him to run back to you with a smile on his face using the clicker. Wnat to teach tricks like roll over, “die,” or army crawl? Pull out the clicker and get teaching!
