A clicker is a tool used to tell your dog 'yes, you got it.' It's an excellent way of marking the precise behavior you want. A clicker is the equivalent to a whistle used in marine animal training. We use the word 'yes' instead of a clicker in many of our classes. Some people find clickers hard to coordinate with a treat bag and a leash and a dog. We can all use the word 'yes'. We also use the lure-reward method of training; it is fun, highly effective and great when involving children into the training process.
