What benefits does Clicker Training have?
Our basic Clicker and Lead Training Class in Colchester covers basic obedience using hand signals, something dogs understand a lot more than voice commands. We will work with training eye contact, sit, lay, stay, come and recalls as well as waiting at a gate while you walk threw. This is to be practised at home too, asking your dog to sit and wait before you open the back or front door or lay and stay in their bed while you walk around the house.
This training helps stop many unwanted and wanted behaviours from separation anxiety to over protection and stress levels before and during a walk.
Our class ends with a checklist to tick off and a certificate of graduation to our more advanced Clicker Training Class. This will develop other hand signal instructions like no bark, bark, toilet training in a particular spot in the garden, jobs around the home, retrieve and fun moves like training the play bow!
Results from this positive training method are having a relaxed, calmer and more assertive dog. Their tail will relax during training, which demonstrates how Clicker Training can take the dogs anxieties away and teach it a healthier mind frame, using their brain and therefore having a more content dog that understands what its role should be in life.
Clicker Training also develops the respect and relationship you have with your dog and your dog has with you.
Previous owners have seen a tremendous change in their dog from doing this course. It’s the owners that need to be re-trained and all members of the house needs to be doing the same thing!
