My clicker trained dogs have been the most obedient dogs I have had and also the happiest in complying. You need to study the method before starting. Some think it is a magic tool but there is a science behind it.
And the cool think is that you don't have to use the clicker after they have learned the behavior on cue.
This method works for every animal with a brain.

doggiedad looks like you decided. anyone that trains and socializes their dog is
a whisperer.

[QUOTE=Lobobear44;4757730]What is your favorite dog training method? Is it Positive Reinforcement, clicker training, dominance alpha pack training, e-training, or whatever.

>>> My favorite dog training method I have not decided but it is Positive Reinforcement. <<<<

Once upon a time I believed in the alpha training, but later was convinced it is not a healthy method. I am studying all kinds of amazing Positive Reinforcement training methods. I like my philosophy, however a training method could fit it. Maybe I could develop a new idea of Positive Reinforcement training. I am going to try out the clicker training tomorrow with my own dog Riley that I should've started years ago. Why don't I start sooner than later? Should start more a sooner than later.

Do want to be a professional dog trainer the >>>> new dog whisperer

I love positive based methods. I like to build the relationship with the dog thru rewards. Finding the dog's "crack" is always interesting. Clicker training...my trainer once told me it was the most powerful tool in the dog world...LOVE LOVE LOVE clicker training. Breaking it all down for the dog to understand and marking that one instance..then seeing it click for them. Free shaping is new to me. Not sure how I feel about that yet.
I'm using a combination of operant conditioning and clicker by meisterfeld! Reading a lot of his great books

Stosh We did the traditional AKC Canine Good Citizen obedience training. I just recently started Mirror Method Training and we love it. All off leash all the time no matter what level the dog is at, clicker and treats, mostly lots of fun. It's technically shaping (reinforcing the behavior you want). It's pretty much the exact opposite of the usual obedience training. Lots of relationship building

I like to do both. I spent a lot of time capturing behaviors with Halo, probably the most of any of my dogs, but I also did some with Keefer and Dena. I'd just sit on the floor and hang out with her and mark and reward anything I liked. I took the first week off work, and then spent the next few weeks taking long lunch breaks so I could come home and spend time with her. Usually she "worked" for a portion of her lunch kibble, using it as training treats. I don't know if it was technically free shaping since I wasn't working on incremental steps towards any particular behavior, I was just reinforcing things I liked and wanted to encourage, especially focus.

Luring is great because the lure motion can be faded to become your hand signal for a particular behavior, so that's something I'll probably always do in addition to other methods.

Jax08 I don't get frustrated when luring. if it's not working I step back and think about what I'm doing wrong. I'm not great at waiting
