carmspack I would recommend this book THE THINKING DOG - CROSSOVER TO CLICKER TRAINING - Dogwise Published Items - Dogwise.com
The Thinking Dog - Crossover to Clicker Training

What I like about it is that it takes the clicker training out of knee-jerk mechanical approach and reaction into engaging the dog into thinking and making decisions , marked with a click and reward.

You need to stop clicker training for a day or so and read up on 'clicker training' then just go right back in. Age doesn't matter, fine you started up already and you can use a clicker to train NEW behaviors forever.

But ALWAYS if you click you treat.

When training new behaviors.. first you click/treat each and every time, late you start with 'random' reinforcement (click/treat), and then generally fade the click/treat entirely to just having verbals (praise).

But you do NOT go from click/treat 100% to click/treat never. And you also don't just 'click' without treats.

Intermittent Reinforcement Schedules

More than anything with this YOUNG YOUNG YOUNG puppy you need to keep training 100% fun. End BEFORE the puppy does. That puppy should be on/over/at you wanting to learn learn learn. If it's not you are doing too much, too fast, not enough treats/toys, too long.....

The #1 stuff is ENGAGEMENT --- > http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...s-puppies.html

Watch how this owner/handler is on the floor and look at the ATTITUDE and how often the treats are being given out. And this puppy is 9 weeks old.

When and how to transition from treats to clicker

I started clicker training mishka at 6 weeks... Which was probably a bit early. I've never used a clicker before her, but she seems to love it. What is your opinion of when to stop treating after the click? I don't want her to lose her enthusiasm for learning new things.
