Clicker Training For Dogs

Catching

This is when you literally catch the dogs behaviour. For example if you want to train your puppy to lay down then you definitely loose time waiting for your pet to sleep the night, as soon because they do you click then immediately reward using a treat so that you have “caught” the behaviour.

Shaping

This is where you receive your puppy to execute small steps building up to some bigger overall goal. For example if you want to instruct your puppy to improve their paw you’ll start by awaiting your dog to move their paw slightly started and then click and reward. You do vid few times after which the next time they raise their paw you do not click before the raise it a bit higher after which click and reward.

Luring

This is to train your dog by luring them using a reward. For example getting them to to lay down you place your hand in front of your dog using a treat within it and gradually lower your hand towards the floor. As the dog follows you and actually starts to lie down you time the click which means you click because the dogs elbows touch a floor. After a while it is possible to lose the treat and your puppy will lie down by using an easy hand action.

Finally when your dog has mastered one with the above you put in a cue to ascertain your clicker for proper dog training. To do this you practice with your dog until they are fully aware the action after which you put in a command like sit or stay. Remember that once your canine obeys the command you have to click and treat as soon because they have completed the action.

Timing is everything with dog clicker training but you will get some achievement without the need to boost your voice. Training your pet requires patience and consistency whichever method you choose to use. If you’re tired then disappear by leaving training for at a later date, if it is possible to spend 30 minutes a day training your dog, this will increase both your dogs plus your confidence and very quickly your pet will know what you’re trying to train for them.

Remember consistency, praise and use will help you together with your puppy on your own journey of education.
