Clicker Training with Wentworth Training Institute
The first step in clicker training your dog. We offer a three-hour informational classroom session prior to beginning any hands-on training. During this session we provide great information about dogs, i.e. why does your dog act the way s/he does (good and bad), how to effectively communicate with your dog, and we will set the foundation for Clicker Training with your dog.
BASIC CLICKER TRAINING
Clicker training sessions offer direct hands-on training with your dog. These one-hour sessions are offered three times a week. Our Clicker Training Sessions specifically cover teaching you to train your dog to: sit, lie down, stay, come when called and walk a loose leash. However, you will also learn the basic principals needed to train your dog to perform just about any trick.
We also offer private one-on-one training in the privacy of your own home. Although we are happy to provide private clicker training, Private Training Sessions are normally provided to allow us to help you with behavioral problems rather than teaching your dog new tricks.
Clicker Training for Dogs
Marker Training, commonly referred to as Clicker Training, allows you to use a clicker to “mark” (or point out) any trick/behavior you want to teach your dog. Clicker Training is a simple, fun, and highly effective technique used for teaching your dog new ‘tricks’. Remember: if it’s not something your dog would normally do without a cue, then from your dog’s perspective, it’s a trick.
Clicker Training Classes offered by Wentworth Training Institute specifically covers teaching you to train your dog to: sit, lie down, stay, come when called and walk a loose leash. However, you will also learn the basic principals needed to train your dog to perform just about any trick/behavior. Here’s an overview of how it works: Every time your dog gives you a behavior you desire, he gets a ‘click’ and every time he gets a click he gets a reward, generally a tasty treat. Once your dog understands that Click = Reward you can train your dog to do just about any trick you can imagine.
