Welcome to Pawsabilities Dog Training!
Whether you are starting with your first puppy or you would
like your older dog to be better behaved, it is possible to teach your dog to think, to
train him kindly and with respect. If you have never heard of Clicker Training before,
getting your head around the concepts may take some adjustment! It is not hard kids
often make great Clicker Trainers but it is different than anything used in more
traditional dog training classes. You can learn how to gently communicate with your dog in
a way he or she will understand!
Clicker Training uses a marker signal (from a small
noisemaker called a clicker) to help the dog determine exactly what he has done right! The
click, which has marked a behaviour, is always followed by something the dog
wants, such as a treat or a toy. Since the dog was positively reinforced for his
behaviour, a scientific principle called Operant Conditioning states that he is likely to
repeat the action.
Clicker Training can be used to teach basic pet manners such
as sit, come, stay, and leave it or tricks such as shake a paw and spin. Clicker Training
can also be used to teach dogs to calmly accept grooming, nail trimming, and veterinary
Clicker Training is about learning how to achieve your goals
using positive reinforcement, trust and respect.
The primary goal of Pawsabilities Dog Training is to enhance
the relationship between dogs and their families. We will work together so you can learn
the skills needed to positively train your dog. Once you understand Clicker Training, you
will be able to apply the principles to teach your dog a wide variety of skills - you may
never need to hire a dog trainer again!
