    I did it with Kass and it worked well. It worked for Erns, Gems and Tessa, but I have become a bit lazy and not been consistent with it.

    Yep - I did a lot of it with Kolby. You just have to be careful when it comes to weaning them from "click and treat" to just "click" and occasional treat.

    I never really trained my dogs that way (show in obedience and rally), but I know some people who have and are very successful with it. The most important thing, especially when you are first beginning is to make sure that you click at the right time, and not too late (it take a little coordination). I also don't have the patience for the really hard core "shaping" clicker training, but that's just me.

    The success of clicker training is on you. Its all about timing.

    I prefer to use my 'Yes' or 'Try again' as a click, that way I always have them.

    I use clicker training when I am teaching something brand new. It is easier for me to click at the right time than to say "yes". Most of the time I just use "yes" or just carry on with what we are doing. A click, by the definition that I have and use is "good job, I like what you did, a treat is coming". I don't always have treats so most of the time it is just "yes" or "eh"/"tsst" when communicating right and wrong with my dog.

    I pretty much wholly shape now - my dogs know click and yes as their marker - so I use both it.
    I will never use anything bet shaping.

    I'm not sure that I used the term "shaping' correctly, but if it's the "offering behaviors" , that's what I don't quite have total patience for. I more into some kind of "luring" my dog to do what I want him to do (not just luring with food, but putting my dog in a position where he will naturally do what I want him to) and then rewarding with a "click" or a "YES" in my case and then treat. That said, now that I am training my dogs "away from me" (utility) it would by nice if I could click for the behavior that I wanted.

    I had and still have great success with the clicker. It works well.. I'm still using it daily. Don't give a treat on every click but occasional.. but praise on every click.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.
