So we took Fred to his first training class a couple days ago (a beginner's course since he had no prior obedience training before I adopted him), where we learned to "load the clicker", except the clicker was a spoken word. (I chose "yes") However, Fred doesn't really seem to be responding or reacting to the word, and we've been having some trouble with consistency in our daily training sessions. He is very food motivated, so that's good, but I was thinking of using an actual clicker as it might be more precise (I can click immediately when he does the action) or have a more consistent sound, and hopefully this could help us with shaping (we've been working on "shake"). However, as he's never been exposed to a clicker before, I reckon it might take a while for him to associate the clicker with treats. Does anyone have any tips for clicker training an adult dog? Thanks.
