The clicker is an extremely valuable tool as part of the process of creating or changing behavior. Many who use a clicker combine it with lure/reward or traditional training methods, which can slow the learning process. The use of Shaping and Targeting allows the dog to not only become a cooperative partner in training, but when used correctly speeds the learning process and creates stronger behavior. This webinar on advanced clicker training for dogs is geared toward those looking to take their clicker training to the next level and remove lures or compulsion from the process. There will be many videos and examples of advanced clicker training for dogs that will include performance sports, problem behavior, and every day manners and tricks. Take the next step in your training and join Julie in this fun and informative webinar.
