What is Clicker Training?

What is clicker training? “Clicker training” is the popular term for the training method based on what we know about how living organisms are able to learn. Research has shown that any creature—whether a dog, cat or person for that matter, is more likely to learn and repeat behaviors, which  have resulted in consequences it desires and enjoys. Therefore, those of us, whom  clicker train provide consequences desired by their animal in exchange for actions or behaviors desired by us. We call these consequences “rewards” and the process is called “reinforcement.” Clicker Training allows us to capture desired behaviors as well as shape larger behaviors, by “clicking” small approximations to what we do want.

Rebel is my dog I am using as my Demo Dog for class and to say we are having a blast learning is an understatement!! We can’t wait to graduate this year and put our knowledge to good use helping dogs in our community. I have met some pretty amazing trainers out there also committed to a different way of training.
