LOVE this new video about clicker training a puppy PLUS showing a green puppy learning the 'sit'.
I was wondering is it to old to teach click training. Our dog is 7 months old and I feel she may be to old learn. I have tried many times and all she does is either look at it or just ignore the sound. I mainly need to teach her while she is enjoying her daily walks and I need to teach or make her learn to walk closer or to stay out of the bushes or flower beds along the way. That video is nice and the puppy learned fast. I feel our pup maybe out of the clicker stage.
I absolutely agree with Debbie, it's never too old to teach a dog new tricks! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly a dog adapts to the clicker when used properlyNo dog is too old to train, with a clicker or any other method, and especially not at 7 months.
Kaiju practices for his mealtime food almost every meal. I don't really see how it could be a bad thing. Maybe if you only exclusively practiced at mealtimes. Then it might be difficult to generalize behaviors because mealtimes are typically at home. But as long as you are also practicing in other areas and at other times, I don't see how a little extra practice could be detrimental.Hey guys, I have read on different threads that clicker training the dog with its meal food, around meal time can be effective. Others have said not to do this. Can anyone advise?
Thank you, starting to make sense nowLoading the clicker just means clicking and feeding a piece of food several times so your dog makes the connection that food follows the click.
Yes, you use hand/vocal signals with the clicker. The click doesn't indicate what behavior the dog should do, it marks when the dog does the right behavior. So if you say "sit" and the dog sits down, you click the second the dog's butt touches the ground to communicate that that was what you wanted.
