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.
