How to Train a Dog- dog training clicker

In this video you will learn the basic concepts on how to train your dog to fit perfectly into your particular life style. Please refer to my other videos for help regarding specific training situations. You can find the videos organized more clearly on my website: www.dogmantics.com Remember you are training your dog 100% of the time! Every interaction you have with your dog is training them something. So you have to be conscious of this fact every time you interact with your dog.

  • I had to put my 14 yr old black lab down a month ago. Sad sad day. My family surprised me with a new black lab puppy from a rescue and now I have to re-learn training behaviors all over because my first lab was so awesome I hardly had to work at anything with her. Your videos are helping me along. I never used to clicker train but I’m learning myself now with your assistance. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for all your videos!!!!!

  • People-if, like me, you have been watching these videos and devouring all this information you should donate something. Even if it’s only a small amount. I’ve learnt SO much from her, and am so grateful. Thanks.

  • @Hpfan75 I have a schnauzer and trained him not to do the behaviors I didn’t like,like pulling on leash,using the bathroom in the house and barking with positive reinforcement.

  • nyc….kepp it up

  • Hey! I’m 14 years old and I was thinking about getting a dog and training it with your methods. but I don’t know what age I should get the dog at to train it. Does it matter what age the owner has to be to train it? Plus could you train a dog without a clicker?

  • Hello. I am from the Philippines and I want to say that your tutorials are great and very informative.
    I just want to ask your help on where should I start and what aspect should I train my dog first (aside from the obvious familiarizing him with the clicker). I’m a bit confused and don’t know where to start. Thank you.

  • Hope you don’t mind me butting in here. When you want to fade out the clicker, a behaviour should be consistently on cue (either hand or verbal cue). If it is and you don’t need to have any food lures in your hand at all, you can start fading out the need for a clicker, e.g. only click and treat for every 2 sits, then every 3, every 4 etc., then remove the clicker altogether and do the same with food. Then make it completely random as this keeps the dog guessing. Hope that helps

  • I love all of your videos! I just wondered if you had a video that demonstrates how to progress from click and treat to verbal cue and treat to verbal cue alone? Once the behaviour is consistent, how do you stop clicking and treating and just ask for the behaviour? My clicker trainer says I will “just know”, but that is a little vague for me!

  • dont use a shock collar on your dog, its not nice. just saying :)

  • Shock collars ARE a cruel way to train your dog… The misconception is that they are not.

  • it’s a shame that they are still permitted here in New Zealand.

  • I think it is a common misperception that “shock collars” are a cruel way to train your dog. The current generation of remote collars have noise, light, vibration and mild adjustable shock. I think they can be used in conjunction with positive training as an “interupter” of problem behaviors. They should never be used as punishment but rather as a signal to “pay attention” much like the pull of the collar. I only use the vibrate setting.

  • Can you make a video on how to train a dog to leave a cat litterbox or a cat alone???????please

  • I am trying to teach her to walk with a loose leash, she gets very excited and tends to pull and tug ALOT. When I don’t let her get what she wants, she begins to whine. I then take a few steps back and wait for her to come to me, once the leash is loose I begin to walk forward while she jolts ahead of me. Again, I stop and then she ends up jerking herself from the leash and whining again. I do this repetitively.
    Any suggestions on what I should do?

  • When and how can I phase off the treats?

  • Hey Emily,

    I just got a 4 month old puppy about a week ago and so I was looking for
    training video and came across some of yours. I think your advice and
    teachings are very valuable and useful and have used some of it. However,
    my dog/puppy was really depressed the first couple of days I got her, is
    this normal? and does it affect her training/learning ability since I am
    not her original owner?

  • Love your video channel!
    I have a question: One of my dogs barks at humans and dogs sometimes. I have a sound I use when I want her attention, and I always try to use it before she starts barking, but sometimes She’s faster than me and starts barking, then I make the sound and she stops and looks at me. But now she barks more often because she knows I’m going to make the sound and reward her for looking at me, What should I do?

  • I can vouch for this working….lol

    Nice, formal video Em, I like it. 🙂
