    Definitely do some reading up on clicker training then. If you don't know what you are doing then it won't work properly.

    The first thing you need to do is "charge" the clicker up so the dog understands the clicker(marker) means treats. So stand in front of Ruby and just click then give her a treat, repeat that 20 times and she should understand that click means treat.

    Anyways, read up on proper clicker training otherwise you won't get the results that you want.

    Oh and no i havent used a clicker, I have never done really any training besides toilet training and teaching a dog to sit!
    No I would go with a proper treat bag and a separate training belt because those ones like you have linked above and the DOOG walking belts are very weak, the first time Phoenix pulled on my DOOG belt it broke at the seam plus they rarely ever have a big enough pocket for the amount of treats you need for proper training, try something like this:-

    Black Dog Hands Free Training Belt
    I have had this training belt for over 6 months and it is strong. It withholds both my 25+ kilo extra strong dogs with no dramas. Even when Keira is carrying on like a tool when she sees another dog and Keira is around 30 kilos.

    Black Dog Treat Pouch - Regular
    This has a snap opening which closes automatically if your dog or any dogs tries to get their head in. Also good for leaving it open for easy access for you. It also has a couple pockets on the front which are good, for phone, keys, doggie poo bags and your clicker when not in use.

    How good are you with sewing?

    Friend of mine bought a bumbag from a $2 shop and replaced the zip with a magnetic strip thing that works the same way as the black dog ones.

    I've also seen velcro. The black dog double ended leash also doubles as a hands free, you just clip it around your waist

    The very first thing I would recommend is (and it's free!) is a commitment to what type of training you intend to use. That doesn't mean you can't be flexible, but consistency is key- so learn your method, and stick with it. Building a strong foundation takes time and patience, but taking time to build the foundation will save time 'mending cracks' later. It's like building a multi-story building!

    I'd have, at minimum, a flat collar, martingale collar, leash (of good length- the multi adjustable ones are excellent), treat pouch, different value treats including a toy if Ruby likes 'tug' or 'catch', your clicker and a sense of humour (also free!!!)......

    You will need to go 'back to basics' which means avoiding correcting Ruby until you know she has the mechanics of the movement down pat. A good rule of thumb is 10 successful attempts in a row (but not necessarily in the one training session) before moving to next skill level.

    Remember- training creates stress in the dog (nit just the human, lol) and you need to play fair at all times. If Ruby doesn't understand, don't push forward, go back a step. Always end a training session on appositive note, and keep your sessions fun and engaging.

    Oh, I could type about this all day.... Sorry.... Went OTT!
