Has anyone ever followed this method of training.

Was reading a book today mainly about dog tricks and behaviour and it was all bases on clicker training.

No never tried it although we were given the option of this when we first started training classes.

I have heard lots of good reports about it but timing is the key. You can always try it and see how you get on if you fancy it?

I might use it for a couple of specific things, Diesel likes to bark when dogs pass the window and I think it could help with this, and also fancy some trick training with them x

I think it works, if you stick with it we did it for while with Bailey and if I click today he still comes straightaway and sits in front of me for a treat 10 years later !!

We used it at training but a year ago at least, it's very helpful if you need to get the dog's attention, in fact, thank you Claire, I might go back to using a clicker for Elsdon especially after yesterday!

I don't follow the clicker method but I do click my fingers when I give commands and he always responds well to it. Sometimes I don't use words but just click and point, for example to ask him to come I click and point next to my feet and he somehow knows what that means!

Clicker training is good. You have to get the knack of doing it right though.

Command, deed, click treat.

It can be good fun and they never seem to forget that noise.

I wouldn't want to use it long term, but think I'll give it a go with indie, Craig will be training Rogue so it's up to him how he wants to do it x

Very, you just stop using it and carry on using your voice commands. You can pick it up again at any point, they should still remember it.

As Jan has said - it's so easy. I haven't used the clicker for the known commands for months!

Very easy once they get the hang of it you should stop as it is designed really to help them understand you want them to do something. Once they master it without the clicker you don't have to use it again.
