What is Clicker training for dogs?
Clicker training is a type of dog training that employs a small, handheld clicker device to mark a behavior and uses treats to reinforce the behavior. By triggering a click while simultaneously teaching a technique or offering a treat, you can condition your dog to associate the sound with the command or reward.
How do you teach a dog to click?
To teach a dog the meaning of the click, a treat is given immediately after clicking. Once the dog learns the positive effects of the clicking sound, the clicker itself acts as a conditioned reinforcer. Clickers can be found at most major pet stores and are relatively inexpensive.
