What is Clicker Training

BEFORE... Watch this!
Introduction and instructions: Clicker Training and FAME! 

It is a science-based system for teaching behavior with positive reinforcement.

You use a marker signal (the sound of a toy clicker) to tell the animal (or person) when it's doing the action that will pay off. The system was first widely used by dolphin trainers who needed a way to teach behavior without using physical force.

Clicker Training is a fantastic way to teach your dog tricks, improve and perfect obedience, build confidence and so much more!.

It's fun, useful and exciting for you and your dog!

*Dogs learn that the marker signal means, "Something good is coming." Then they realize they can make you click by repeating their behavior. They become enthusiastic partners in their own training. In people, clicking reduces the need for correction and is especially useful for training physical skills. Clicker training is exciting for animals and fun for us. And it's easy to do. You might get results on the very first try.
