Clicker training is sweeping the world of dog ownership. With Clicker Training for Dogs by Karen Pryor you can learn the principles of this all-positive method of training to deepen your bond with your dog. Clicker training can help to train basic behaviours and tricks, but it can also be useful when dealing with reactivity issues.
By reading Clicker Training for Dogs by Karen Pryor, find out why:
- Every interaction is a training opportunity.
- Mistakes are best ignored.
- Punishment doesn’t work.
- Your dog will understand the language of a ‘click’ better than anything else.
In this new, expanded edition, clicker training pioneer Karen Pryor shows you the ins and outs of clicker training, from timing your clicks to teaching cute tricks. She will demonstrate the difference between luring and shaping, and the benefits of each training method.
Whether you have a young puppy or an adult dog, you can teach lifelong skills including:
Good manners, including walking without pulling and sitting to greet guests.
Safety behaviours, such as coming when called, indoors or out.
Fun games and novel tricks, like carrying packages and playing hide and seek.
