Clickers vs Energy

Every dog, every owner, and family is different so is our training. We are not dog trainers, but dog communication coaches, we help you understand how to communicate to your dog through custom techniques, make sure you are doing it right, and are not reliant on treats or pain.

What is a clicker? It is that box that makes a click. This is used with marker training. What is marker training? It’s when you ask a dog to do a specific task and when they do it you click and give them a treat. Is this really dog training? If dog training was so simple do you think there would be a need for dog trainers?

If you are going to do marker training, which is fine for a lot of the basic commands,  advanced tricks, or some dogs, why give your power over to a box? Why not use your own voice? You can use your voice as a maker word like “yes!” in the same tonality and pitch, you can even use bridge words like “good” to keep the dog going without rewarding every single action. There is more to training a dog than just treats, and clickers.

The main problem with 100% marker/treat training is it works for some of the dogs some times, but as you know all dogs are different, and so are the owners! Remove the treats, or have a higher level distraction, and most dogs won’t listen. Dogs are meant to follow a leader. Not through bribery, but from your ability to communicate with your dog.  A dog that only listens for a bag of treats is not 100% dependable.  We help you bridge the communication gap through you, not treats.

At the end of the day you should be your dogs best reward. By teaching you how to communicate with your dog in this way you are building a everlasting bond, that most dog trainers simply can’t teach.
