I’m letting Jess do a short post today.
A note from Jess,
Hey everyone, we got a clicker! Mini and Barbarella are trained with just voice praise and treats, so we have never had any experience using a clicker. We had been wanting to try out clicker training though, and since we now have a new dog (Zachary) that knows nothing, we figured this would be a good time to try it. I have done quite a bit of research on clicker training and am watching some YouTube videos to help me out. Yesterday the clicker we ordered arrived and Zachary had his first lesson in clicker training; which was to associate the “click” with a treat. In the few sessions we’ve done, I’ve already had a lot of fun. I hope Zachary will catch on to it soon so we can start teaching him some things like sit, stay, etc. I am really excited about it and just want to teach him all sorts of things but to do that, he first has to learn what the “click” means. If clicker training is successful with Zachary, I might even try it with Mini! Although she already does very well without one.
That’s all for now!
