Force Free, Positive Reinforcement Training with a Clicker
Trainers communicate precisely which actions will earn those consequences/rewards by using a consistent sound to “mark” the actions or behaviors we like. That marker is often the sound of a clicker.
Benefits of Clicker Training
- Accelerated learning
- Strengthened human-animal bond
- Enthusiastic learners
