Clicker Training

Clicker and DogClicker Training is a training method that uses a clicker to make a sudden sharp “click” sound that indicates to a dog that he has done something to earn a food reward. This “click” has been shown to produce very rapid learning, long retention, and emotional surges/positive emotions in dogs.  It is hypothesized that the “click” is processed by the central nervous system faster than any spoken word can be.  Find out how fast your dog can learn with one of these great Clicker Classes!
