To prepare for clicker training,grab a handful of treats and simply allow your dog to sniff your hand and immediately follow it wherever it goes. Once your dog knows to follow your hand,give it a treat. After it does this several times,pick up the clicker in the same hand so it knows to follow the clicker.
