Standard clicker for clicker training – By Black Dog (makers of our range of dog lead training and wear equipment)
Clickers are a fantastic way of making training fun for your dog. Simply start out by clicking and rewarding your dog so he associates the click with a reward. When they see you take the clicker out they know its training time and they try to get a click from you as they know a reward follows.
We break down what we are trying to get them to do in to smaller steps and try to get them to do the action. When it happens they get a click.
An example is staying. sit them on a mat and take one step away and wait for 2 seconds and click if he stays. increase the time and distance and introduce a verbal and visual hand queue. Eventually you can remove the reward for a pat or a toy and the occasional treat.
