How Effective is Clicker Training? With proper clicker dog training, tasks that are learned can be recalled by a dog years after the initial training took place, even if no further practice took place. The clicker strategy has been held in such regard, the method was employed by the U.S. Department of Defense in training animals for undercover missions in the 1960s. In a more recent example of its effectiveness, the clicker method was used by one Vermont animal shelter to successfully teach timid cats to act more ”outgoing” when would-be adopters entered the adoption room. By far what may come as the most surprising, you can find a clicker at your local pet store for only about two dollars. While clicker training can be easier than you think, be advised, before you begin working with the clicker make sure to follow the proper techniques. Do not pick up the device and try your best guess at training your dog. Enlist the help of proven clicker dog training strategies to avoid disappointment, and you will be well on your way to training your dog with these proven powerful dog training methods.
There are many training techniques and philosophies that claim to be the fastest, easiest or most affective way to train your dog. The one thing that every dog training technique seem to mirror is that positive reinforcement and reward is the most effective. The second thing that all training techniques have in common is that the first step is to teach the dog fundamental commands. These fundamental commands will be the foundation of communication between canine and human.
DOWN command can be taught just after SIT is mastered. It is important to use only the word DOWN. Your dog does not understand variations such as Lay Down. You must be consistent in training your dog that DOWN only refers to laying down. If you want to teach your dog to get down off of your chair, train OFF as your command. To teach your dog to lay down, first command him to SIT. Using a treat, draw your dog into a laying down position by dragging the treat between his legs and moving it forward. When the desired position is reached, praise, and treat. As you train your dog each new command, be sure to combine each command so patterns do not develop and the action of each different command is rewarded when achieved.
