They’ll be no tears with these clickers!
What is a clicker?
A clicker is a small, plastic, (usually) hand-held noisemaker.
What do you use a clicker for in dog training?
You use a clicker as a marker. It marks the exact moment that your pet did what you wanted them to do.
What happens after the click?
You give a treat – always, no questions asked. Even if you clicked at the wrong moment.
How does it work?
Clicker training is a reward-based (positive) training method, so your pets generally love it. In the early stages, they associate the click with a treat. Once this concept is learned, every time you click, they know a treat will be forthcoming, so they work hard to achieve that “click”.
Do I have to carry a clicker forever?
No. Once the lessons are learned, you can put the clicker away until you want to teach the next trick.
It’s as simple as that.
And it really is quicker with a clicker!
Clickers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and volumes. The box clickers tend to be louder, and the button clickers quieter. Remember, your pets have amazing hearing, so they don’t necessarily need loud.
For the first-time clicker trainer, buttons are usually best as it is much easier to locate the clicking part. They can also be used with your foot.
We happen to love these teardrop clickers. They are lightweight, fit nicely in the hand, have a good substantial click, and the button is easy to locate without being too prominent. So, we have created two fun SPECIAL EDITION varieties with pawsitive training messages!
- Orange Teardrop Clicker – Trick & Click & Treat
- Blue Teardrop Clicker – It’s Quicker with a Clicker
There is a small hole near the edge for fitting your favourite attachment to ensure that your clicker is always close at hand.
They make lovely gifts for your dog training pals!
