I haven't watched the first two (yet) but watched the other two a couple of weeks ago before I got my first clicker. I found these to be very helpful.

After watching the "Leave It" video I questioned whether you could really get success as quickly as he did on that video so I sat down with Ridley and tried to duplicate what he did and guess what, it worked! That was a couple of weeks ago and while I still have to reinforce this some Ridley understands the "Leave It" command!

Click/treat WAY WAY WAY WAT more often. More clicks. More treats. More having your dog know he's a rocket scientist and always right.



Work on this 'trick'

Tab on youtube is awesome! I've watched every one of his videos multiple times. Kikopup is also amazing. They go hand in hand. Here is a sample of one of Kikopup's videos:


They both have tons to say on the matter and everything they say/show is very well thought out. Clicker training is a lifestyle not just a training method

GAMES use the clicker to start training GAMES!

Teaching a trick is the least important part of teaching a trick <--click that





And for those that STILL think using a clicker and teaching tricks has no correlation to REAL dog training.... here's the same trainer from above and she JUST won a July 2012 Agility Championship with her dog. Trained with a clicker.

Trying to 'load the clicker' ended up making my puppy vomit and threw off her whole eating / bowel movements schedule.
