    Default Clicker training

    Hey y'all, just started clicker-training Flossy. If anyone of you had an experience with this, I'd love to know your thoughts.

    I did some clicker training with Scooter. It works really well. There's a great book about training hard to train dogs called "When Pigs Fly". It uses clicker training. I had really good results with it with Scooter. I should have kept it up and need to start again.

    I'm truly a lousy trainer but did try clicker training with Alex. I found that you have to get the timing absolutely perfect or it's just confusing to the dog. But it does work!!! Let us know how it goes, ok?

    I loved it. As mentioned, timing is crucial with the clicker.

    It's really very important that you know exactly when to click and when to give the treat. Anyone here knows Emily Larlham? I've been watching her videos and they have been very helpful.

    The beginning is always the hardest part, so I'm still trying my very hard to reinforce positivity to see results (I'm hopeful). This is actually my second time, I did clicker training with Lance.
