Clicker charging issues

533 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  con
Hi all,

we’ve recently adopted a 3 month old German Shorthaired pointer who we are very keen to get trained well. We watched and read a lot about clicker training and decided we would like to go this route. We’ve been working at it twice a day for over a week now and we’re still not getting any sign that the clicker is charged. We click the clicker and Cola doesn’t even notice. During training, We’ve been clicking the clicker as soon as Cola has the kiblble we use in his mouth. Are we doing something wrong?

You click BEFORE you treat- when the dog does what you want,say 'yes' or click,and then give the treat. It's also called marker training.You use your sound or word to mark correct behavior and say 'food is coming'. Some dogs do better with a word.
