Foundations of Clicker Training
Clicker training is a great way to teach behaviours that can be quite complex. And while science it clear that it is NOT a faster way to train dogs than without, it certainly teaches you as dog owner to focus on the task at hand. You will learn to recognise the correct behaviours in your dog and to reward appropriately.
A clicker in training is used as a marker – something that tells your dogs that the behaviour he was offering a split second before the click, is what is being rewarded. Clear communication between owner and dog is the basis for successful training and a clicker is a fantastic tool to achieve this
