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!

      Clicker training is a science-based method of dog training that uses positive reinforcement to teach dogs new behaviors. It's a fun and effective way to train your dog, and it can be used to teach a wide variety of behaviors, from basic obedience commands to more complex tricks.

      Free shaping is a dog training technique that involves rewarding successive approximations of a desired behavior. This means that you click and treat your dog for getting closer and closer to the behavior you want, until they eventually perform the behavior perfectly.
