Yankee Shelties BBB Business Review


So, you're ready, willing and able to start training your Sheltie? YAY!

While clicker training is a relatively easy concept, the timing, creativity in teaching the dog, and understanding the principles are really important.

The Basics of Clicker Dog Training

I found a few different types of treat bags to hold the food while training. It’s a matter of personal preference. I like the smaller ones that clip to my pants.

Treat Bags to Tickle Your Fancy

As I mentioned in my video, I like to cut small pieces of food rolls to fill the treat bag.

You could as easily cut tiny pieces of hard cheese, cooked meat (easier for you to handle if it's cooked) or carrots if that is what your dog likes.

For those of you unfamiliar with the history of clicker training, it was initially developed by Karen Pryor who used it to train whales. As you can guess, if it worked with an animal that is impossible to control physically just by its sheer size, it can also work for canines.

You can train a myriad of animals using the clicker method, but it has become well known for dogs over the past several decades.

If you’d like your information and supplies straight from the trainer's mouth here it is:

It's kinda like being a kid in a candy store. So much under one virtual "roof".  I hope you have lots of fun working with your dog.
