    DefaultSusan - question on clicker training (and anyone else)

    Susan - I know you said that you used clicker training to help teach Caleb the go-outs and maybe other utility stuff. I would like to try it with Emilu for some things - maybe even heeling to try to give her more direction in what heeling should be. I know that I don't have the patience to do the kind of clicker training where you practically wait for the dog to accidently do something that you want it to and then click and praise - but I like the idea of using it to reinforce correct repsponses. I know there are lots of books out there on clicker training, but I wonder if you have any advice or books to recommend for dogs that already are trained and are using it to learn higher level things? Does that make sense?

    Morgan Spector's "Clicker Training for Obedience" describes in detail each obedience exercise.

    I started with Caleb by clicking and feeding so he began to understand that the click was a reward. Then I began to click the behavior I wanted and fed. Since he was all ready basically trained I did not have to wait for the behavior to be offered just had to teach him that the click was the reward like the food and voice.
