  • DOG CLICKER TRAINING TIPS

    Why clicker training?

    Something as simple as a click can be rewarding for a dog. Clicker training is a positive reinforcement training method that uses a tool, such as a clicker, known to help teach a dog basic commands and tricks.

    Get your timing right

    The clicker method of training relies on exact timing. You should click at the same instant your dog does what you ask. Time your click with your dog’s action because this sound teaches the dog that it is doing the right thing. You have approximately 3 seconds from the time of the action to click. If you click too late, your dog will start to associate a different action with your command.

    Start with clicks and treats

    Clickers allow you to give your dog three separate rewards for every correct action. The first reward is the click, followed instantly by a treat and verbal praise.

    Don’t overuse the clicker

    Clicking too often can desensitize your dog to the sound, and it will forget that the click is a reward.

    Make it a game

    Clicker training is a positive reinforcement method of training. This means that the training should be a positive experience for your dog. Avoid training when you are feeling frustrated or grumpy. Negative attitudes will harm your ability to teach and your dog’s willingness to learn.
