We offer clicker training, which is an animal training method based on behavioral psychology that relies on "marking" the desired behavior and rewarding it. We use all positive reinforcement to reward your dog for wanted behaviors. This is not only effective, but super fun for dogs. By linking cues to rewards your dogs enjoys, he learns that good things come to him when he responds to you! All of a sudden you have a dog who is excited to learn and you both benefit from the skills and behaviors that are learned!
Why It Works ...The Science Behind It ....
Traditional training uses only classical conditioning, resulting in habitual behavior. Clicker training goes beyond classical conditioning to "operant conditioning," when an animal intentionally performs behaviors to bring about desired consequences.
The difference is .... one animal learns and behaves with purpose while the other only by habit. Clicker (operantly conditioned) trained animals put forth effort to learn new behaviors and remember behaviors much longer because they are aware as they learn. They aren't just pushed through the motions, they figure them out and this type of learning stays with them much longer!
