Maybe you’ve heard it somewhere but thought that it’s too complicated to use a clicker or it’s just for trainers. If so, you couldn’t be more wrong!
Clicker is a simple tool that can change your life. It’s a small plastic box with a metal strip inside. When you click it, it makes a specific sound of ‘click-click’. It’s very important that the sound is unfamiliar and different from what your dog usually hears. Its sound is neutral and always the same. That’s why, the sound can be easily associated with a reward.
Dog training with a clicker
This great tool is used in dog training with a positive reinforcement and is practical in the first stages of dog training. The sound of the clicker becomes a marker – it shows your dog what exact behavior you want from him. It’s based on instrumental conditioning. So the sound is conditioned with a reward.
With this tool, you will be able to teach your dog any command.
Basic rule of learning:
Rewarded action will be repeated.
