When having begun with clicker teaching, make sure you talk to with a expert clicker coach to make certain you are making use of the clicker teaching method the right way. A lot of use this method improper and blame the method when the dog does not discover, when in actuality, it is the “coach” “handler” “individual” that is not making use of the clicker correctly. Pam’s Canine Academy gives lots of on the net clicker teaching lessons and has various DVDs on the clicker teaching method. If you really don’t see some thing that you would like to take and need to have aid with your dog, Pamela Johnson gives a person on a person on the net teaching.

I did this movie because I by no means seriously have showed men and women how to use clicker teaching. This has the essential regulations to clicker teaching and how to use toys and meals as a reinforcer.

The click is a secondary reinforcer and the meals or the toy is the primary reinforcer. The dog wants to listen to the click because he has figured out that fantastic points materialize following the click.

Have a terrific day.

  1. I am not being mean because I like clicker training but how come you just don't say "Good Boy!" or "Yes!"?

  6. thank you for this clear tutorial you are a great teacher! do you think dogs can tell the difference between a clicker and clicking with your mouth? with my last dog I used to click with my mouth to get her attention/come to me but she was never clicker trained. I am going to use clicker training with my new dog, do you think it will confuse her if I use clicking with my mouth to get her attention and an actual clicker for rewards? thanks again!

  7. This video was really well done, clear voice and examples with clear words written and pictures. The set up on variety is good too so glad I found you on youtube. My friend turned me on to clicker training when she took a stallion that was to be put down due to his anxiety and aggression, he is very much alive and has not hurt anyone and is the best behaved horse. He willing wants to do things, its amazing to see an animal give of themselves this way. Thanks again!

  10. Thank you! I was a bit nervous as I was doing the clicker and handing him treats because he was SUPER focused on my hand he knew that had treats. He kept nosing it but I wouldn't let him have one until I clicked. I couldn't get him distracted by asking him to fetch his toy (which usually he is excited to do) but apparently he likes the treat a lot more than toys. By treat 15 I saw him look from the clicker to the hand with treats. So when I got to the last 20th piece, suddenly he broke away to check for anything on the floor. I clicked, his head popped up immediately in anticipation. Day 1 and already got him to associate. I'll be reinforcing it tomorrow 🙂

  11. How does a clicker work? I order a $2 one from petco, but it does not click. I feel like maybe a piece is missing from it?

  12. What I like to tell people when they ask about clicker training is something like this: "A clicker is a way to tell your dog he tried something that worked. A click is not a reward and it is not a command. It is a sign that a reward is coming and that to get another, the previous action must be repeated or built on. If I click for my dog sniffing a new object, then he knows I probably want him to touch it with his nose. If that works, he will also offer mouthing to see if that is what I want. If touching with his nose wasn't right, he might try pawing the object, or nosing it in a different way. A good example is when I taught my dog to open a box by nosing the bottom of the lid. Now when I click for him touching something, he will ALWAYS try flipping it to see if that's right. You can teach your dog new behaviors as if they are natural things for him to perform.
    A clicker teaches a dog that anything that has worked in the past may work again. This is why it is so great, because your dog will start offering things that have worked before. In practice, this makes training incredibly fast because they will repeat the same action over and over, getting better at it each time, and following your raises of criteria very quickly.

  13. Pam I've been carer for a difficult alpha male Shar Pei for nearly 2 years now… Earlier this year he was adopted and they returned him 5 months later, as u'd expect, it messed with his head. In 4 months I move to Sydney for school & the shelter I volunteer for is closing. Since he was returned he has bitten a few ppl, – not bad or enough to draw blood and it was always their fault, but still enough that if he gets adopted and returned again, there is no other carer for him and he will likely be euthanised. He is a beautiful, loving intelligent animal who just got a raw deal but with the right owner he could be magic… We've made mad progress from when he came to me he couldn't even walk on a lead but time is short now n I need a way to socialise him, get him to not be such a guard dog and go crazy at anyone at the door and learn not to bite ppl if I'm too sick or can't take him for a walk for a day for some reason… Is there a fast way I can do this to give him the best chance before I move away? Clicker?? He doesn't deserve to be put down but I just can't take him with me

  22. I'm just wondering, what specifically is the clicking for, and what benefit does it add in addition to training them to understand the command, and giving the reward for it? What is the role of the clicker I'm a little confused. Don't call me stupid please just trying to understand
