I am trying to stop Mowie barking at the fence but I am finding it hard, he will not take treats out of anyone's hands (due to previous training not to take food from my four children). When he barks and I distract him tell him 'Enough' then praise with pats and happy voice, he keeps coming to the door and barks more for my attention.
We had our annual trip to the vet yesterday and she kept trying to give him treats, nothing he wouldn't even pick it up when dropped on the table. This is when she suggested clicker training.
So I am here to ask...
Can anyone please explain clicker training to me?
Also recommend a good brand of clicker.
Another thing is Mowie is being de-sexed next week (I really don't want puppies running around now we have a female and a male) should I wait to start the clicker training until after that?
I also must say sorry for all these posts that most must think are stupid but I am trying to do the best for my dogs.
