“Who Else Wants to Know the Easy, Fun and Fast Way to
Train Your Dog?
My name is Leslie, and this is Buddha.
I adopted him on Valentine’s Day a few years ago and it was the best choice I ever made.
But I was very concerned when I adopted him that he would destroy the house I was renting with 3 other people.I had no idea how I was going to communicate with him and I have to admit that our first months together were kind of rough.
He destroyed my bathroom, my favorite purse, an expensive pair of shoes, and an external drive (which was the modern version of “the dog at my homework – I was a college student at the time and was using that drive for a long term project that was due a few weeks later!)
But over the course of a few months, Buddha and I developed a wonderful relationship, and I feel that this relationship is based a lot on our ability to communicate with each other. (Isn’t that true for all relationships?)
When I told the adoption agency that I was having trouble with Buddha, they guided me to clicker training with a local trainer. At the time, I didn’t know what clicker training was, but during my first class the trainer explained that it is a reward based system that works quite well for training dogs.
Six weeks later, the relationship I had with Buddha transformed to one of great trust, love and respect.
Would you like to learn the same technique I used to turn my rambunctious puppy into a polite, happy, well-behaved dog?
Our friendship grew because I can correctly respond to his needs, and he now follows my commands with and without the clicker.
This is important, not only because it allows for great fun for both of you, but it allows for a great relationship.
It also makes it really easy and fast to upgrade Buddha’s skills.
Dogs enjoy the challenge of new tricks and even though Buddha is no longer a puppy, he still enjoys and is capable of learning quickly and easily, and clicker training had a lot to do with that.
Finally, for me, as a dog owner, I found clicker training very fulfilling as well. The woman that trained me used to say that clicker training really trains the human to communicate with the dog. It’s human training… not dog training. I always liked that description because it makes the skill of knowing how to use a clicker more like learning a foreign language.
Once you learn it, you will always have that skill and be able to train whatever dogs or other reward motivated animals (cats, dogs, horses, etc) may come in to your life.
And it really is, in my opinion, one of the most loving and respectful things you can do for your pet.
