Clicker training is going very well. My owner takes out a whole lot of little chicken treats which are very tasty. As soon as I do something, she clicks and she gives me one. I do it and then CLICK- chicken. Sit. CLICK- chicken. OK. Come here. CLICK- chicken. Easy stuff. Up. CLICK- chicken. I keep going until I get all the chicken. I think the treats would be fine without all the clicking, but I can’t seem to break her of the habit. In fact, when she lost the clicker (under a loaf of bread on the counter) I didn’t get any treats for a whole day.
Before clicken, I used to get one treat at a time. Maybe two if one fell on the floor. Now it’s click. click, click-- chicken. I try not to do anything interesting when there’s no clicking.
