We have a 5 month old pup, who apart from manners, has not begun training yet, waiting till we got to new house. so having moved in, ive started with her and all is going well. A very food motivated dog!
Out of curiosity, i tried it on our 2yr old GSD, who is a well trained companion, but working stock so needs 'working' daily to keep him sane.
I was teaching, stand on this piece of paper and you'll get a treat.
he took 3 repetitions and 'got it'. Twas truly amazing and funny to watch him think about it, then start controlling my behaviour by pouncing onto the paper to get me to click/treat.
Im sold! I love to watch dogs figuring out things for themselves, and Bernie is a natural 'thinker' anyhow. I now have a new hobby!
Has anyone else converted over with a converted dog? what have been your experiences with your 'other method trained' dog when you introduced clicker?
