Clickers For Dog Training

Clickers for Dog Training - Choosing the Right One

dog clickerChoosing the right clickers for dog training is not difficult at all. For the most part, they're all the same. They are tiny devices that you can comfortably hold in your hand while you quickly and easily press them. Comfort and the ability to press the device quickly are key because you need to let your dog know the instant that they do something right.

So how much do clickers for dog training cost? They're very cheap, and you can get them for as low as $4.99. There are some more advanced options with extra features but the most you'll ever spend will be about $8 to $10. The Company of Animals makes the Clix Multi-Clicker, a very popular option because it has the ability to adjust the tone and volume of the device. Some dogs have very sensitive hearing and others don't hear as well, so this is a nice touch.

Usually clickers for dog training come with manuals that give you tips on how to use the devices for teach your pet basic obedience commands like sit, come, lay down, and stay. Keep in mind that you don't need dog training aids for basic commands like those, but by learning with them you'll be more comfortable using ones when you try more advanced things like stand, roll over, and speak.

You need to make sure that you get treats to use alongside your dog training clicker!

The whole point of the clicker dog training system is to get our dogs to associate the click with a tasty treat. You can then transition from associating the click with a tasty treat to also associating it with obeying your commands. Then, you'll slowly be able to stop using treats, and they'll only need to hear the clicking sounds.

When your dog gets really good at obeying your command while only hearing a click, you can slowly stop doing it until they only need you to say your command. The end result is a happy dog that knows exactly what you want from them and is able to do it every time for you!

Petco dog training relies on clickers, and if you ever go to their classes you can see them in action. Of course, you don't need to attend pricey classes or invest in dog training books in order to learn how to use the little devices. It's as simple as remembering to use them whenever you would give your dog a treat for doing something right.

Just like with treats, you only want to "click" when your dog obeys you!

If you really want to take your training to the next level and build your relationship with dog, then clickers are a great way to go. For how cheap they are, they're remarkably effective, and they'll help you to really communicate with your pet, like a dog whisperer.

You can buy clickers for dog training at places like Petco, PetSmart, Wal-Mart,, or Target. Remember, you don't have to spend more than a couple dollars on one of these and don't forget to pick up some treats with them!
