Getting Started with Clicker Training-Basic Technique Tutorial for Beginners

Added on Jan 14, 2013 From Donna Hill

Here is an Introduction to 10 Easy Things to Do To Be an Effective Clicker Trainer with Donna Hill B.Sc. (zoology) B.Ed. For beginner trainers and their dogs, I use teaching 'eye contact' or "Watch me" as the training example. This is a fabulous force free way to train dogs and other pets! Applies to humans too (although we call it TAG Teaching -Teaching with Acoustic Guidance- but it is still a marker-based training approach!)

Dec 6, 2016 - #dayanara palestina I found this to be the best clicker training video. It is simple and broken down to basics. You don't realize there is a lot to this. I tried this today and was very successful with my 12 week old puppy. @J-Rod

May 24, 2016 - whats the difference between a clicker and just saying "good".? i cant believe someone has to be certified to do this monkey work.

May 12, 2016 - The problem I have with what you said about where to hold the treat is that you can in deed get the dog to look at you regardless of where you hold the treat. All part of the lesson. Once the dog looks at your eyes, click it and treat it. If it wants to look at the treat, well, it will starve to death. LOL, just kidding, but regardless. You can get your dog to focus on you no matter where the treat is.
