It is important that your dogs basic needs are met in order to have a happy and confident companion. One of these needs is mental stimulation. By providing your dog with the mental stimulation it needs, can help ease behavioural problems such as excessive barking, chewing, jumping up, pulling on the lead, not paying attention to you, plus many more!
Clicker training is a method of training that uses a device called a clicker. This is basically a small device that when pressed makes a ''click" sound. An association between the sound of the click and a positive reward is built up. When the dog carries out a desired behaviour the click is sounded and the dog knows a reward is coming so therefore reinforcing the behaviour. There are 3 steps to clicker training:-
- Get the behaviour
- Mark the behaviour
- Reinforce the behaviour
If you would like to know more then why not attend the clicker workshop and join our clicker classes.
