Here's my dog, Ivy, preforming a few of her tricks :) She know's many more, all of which can be seen on our channel. Please note that all of these tricks are trained using only positive reinforcement with a "Clicker".
What is a clicker?
A Clicker is a small device that when clicked makes, well, a clicking noise! The dogs learn that the clicker means good, and it marks the behavior that they preform. Many dogs, including Ivy, are much happier, and learn faster using the clicker.
When I was first trying to teach Ivy how to weave in and out between my legs, I wasn't using a clicker. It took her 5 days to pick up on it, and even then she didn't fully understand. We decided to take a break from that trick, and a month later, we picked up on clicker training. Instead of taking 5 days to pick up on this, it took her 5 minutes ;)
Thanks for Watching!
