Does your dog appear “slow” or stubborn? We understand the pain, and we can help you.
Many of our clients have discovered that clicker training is the answer. We have many clients near Parkman.
Dog training owners have found that clicker training speeds up the learning process.
A clicker is a marker that tells your dog that he is doing the correct behavior. It serves as a time gap between the behavior and the treat.
This past week I was training a client in West Farmington near Parkman. Dog training was a bit of struggle.
The owner was struggling with sit stay. By the time the owner got the treat out to reward his dog, his dog had broken the sit.
I showed him how to click when his dog was holding the sit. He could then take time to get the treat out. His dog, Ginger, a Springer Spaniel, the began to hold the sit.
Also, if you have multiple people training your dog, the clicker gives you marker that is universal in sound. This makes communication for your dog easy to understand.
Don’t under estimate the power of the clicker! You might struggle with juggling holding the clicker in the beginning.
Once you practice, training will happen faster and you will be able to train your dog faster.
