Clicker Class:

A fun class for any age dog that is trained or untrained. This class teaches clients to effectively observe their dog’s behavior and to train through positive reinforcement (clicker and treats). This course will address solving problems through positive reinforcement, most basic commands, loose leash walking, and teach some fun dog tricks. The emphasis of this course is to teach human clients the art of shaping (the reinforcement of successive approximations). This class is a natural extension of puppy head start and is ideal for individuals who have food motivated dogs and want to train through positive reinforcement. The concepts applied to clicker training were developed by behaviorists many years ago using operant conditioning chambers (Skinner Box). This same technology has long been applied to training marine animals. Marine trainers have advanced and perfected many training techniques and now these same non-force methods are applied to training dogs.
