How to Clicker Train a Dog

Clicker training is an effective method for teaching dogs new behaviors & commands using positive reinforcement

A clicker is a small handheld device that makes a distinct clicking sound.

It allows you to communicate with your dog & reward desired behaviors with precision.

Clickers can be used to teach a variety of commands.

Begin by "charging the marker" — this step associates positive behavior with the sound of the clicker.

Such as giving your dog a treat every time they hear the sound.

Next, define clear goals. 

For example, if teaching a dog to heel, immediately mark the instance when they are at your side.

Always reward with treats when the desired behavior is performed to keep the dog interested.
