Simplified - Training Your Dog - With Your Remote

in Training

There have been many articles written and news events these days about your dog's future and their health, and how each and every one of us dog owners, can make a substantial difference in our dogs longevity, just by making a few simple intelligent decisions regarding our pets. I myself have written many articles from Complimentary medicine, Training to Holistic diets. And clearly, I realize that not everybody has the time to read articles that are thoroughly researched and explained information, that singles out a topic and delivers quality content in long form. But it's hard to do when the author wants to assure themselves that the content of the article is complete and informational to the reader. So I am going to try something new for me, and that is to write a few articles that are short and sweet and designed to make the reader respond instead of going to bed with it.

There are many methods of training your dog that are well documented. There are techniques that are complicated and ones that are simple to implement for your desired result. There are also many great trainers who have written books and created video's specializing in their own style of training that are very successful. One that comes to mind is Joel Silverman and his fine book called "What Color is your Dog?" You ca read a review of Joel and his new book on my website. Joel has worked on Major Motion Pictures and has been featured on Animal Planet. It's a great read.

Click Training

Click Training is probably the easiest form of training your dog and offers excellent results. You can easily procure almost instantaneous attention from your dog with just a few easy lessons with remarkable results. Especially with problem dogs you can almost immediately grab their attention with the clicker method. Let me simply give you a demonstration of the clicker's capabilities. (The Remote) When a dog intentionally performs a behavior in order to bring about a desired consequence, as all clicker trained animals do, they are also learning in a way that researchers call "operant conditioning." Pets (as well as people) will associate an action, an event, a place, a person, or an object with a consequence, whether it is pleasant or unpleasant.

The more a certain event or environment is paired with a particular consequence, the stronger the association. This type of learning is called "classical conditioning" and represents reflexive or automatic behavior, rather than intentional behavior. This method is so easy for animals to adjust to, because it's almost instinctual. I have also found that after a few go a rounds you almost always have your dog or puppy's undivided attention almost 100% of the time, and that makes training your dog or puppy fun but also productive. You can see this style of training in action in the Zak George video on our website.. So I promised you, "short and sweet" and there it is.

Training doesn't have to be a chore and Click Training proves that you and your pet can get involved in training and have a lot of fun in the process. You can find all you need to know and where to buy the tools needed for click training on our website.
