Thus far in this series, we’ve covered all of the basic dog commands you need to start out with when owning a new dog. With that in mind, one of the important tips used not only in dog training, but also in training other animals is the appropriate use of positive markers. Once your dog is accustomed to the sound of a clicker, you can next use the clicker as means to reinforce any of the basic dog commands that we’ve went over such as sit, come, stay, and so on.
2) Clicker training, like any process of dog training requires lots of patience and commitment! 3) If after several sessions you find out that the clicker training is not really working, take a step back and be attentive as to what you may be doing incorrectly. 5) You should start the clicker training in a calm and quiet environment so that your dog will not be distracted by other sights and sounds.
With all these 5 tips at your fingertips, you should now be equipped to give your dog some serious German Shepherd training. This post is by far the longest post so far, so give yourself a pat on the back for reading all the way to the end.
Oh, and before we forget, a Twitter account has been created for the blog as means to interact with our readers and to inform our readers about any new posts that we’re publishing!
Freeshaping – teaching behaviours by letting the dog offer up various positions and then rewarding those that you want.
This is obviously transferrable to any of the common obedience behaviours – sit, stay, wait, heel etc. Repeat 4 or 5 times or until the dog is looking at the bucket and looking back for the treat. Like all dog training, you need to start in a boring, familiar environment and work upwards. If the dog is struggling go back a step or two until they are reliably performing the desired behaviour.

We want to give a big thank you to you for following us on our German Shepherd Training Series. You can set up a daily routine to teach your dog that whenever he hears a clicker sound, he gets a treat! Often times, one of the most common mistakes dog owners make when implementing a clicker training is that they click too late.
Only when you feel that your dog has gotten a feel of the clicker training should you make it more challenging. Most dog trainers would agree that clicker training definitely facilitates your dog’s learning! Set them out, and then c&t for the dog going through the first two poles in the correct way (left shoulder). Now, onto the core of today’s post, which is an extremely valuable German Shepherd training strategy, clicker training. For example, while watching TV or reading a book with your dog in the living room, be sure to beforehand prepare a container of treats within your reach.
If you’re wondering where you can get these clickers for your dog, you can almost always find them at your local pet stores; if not, a quick search on the internet will inform you where you can get these online (there are tons of places on the internet which sell these)! Once they are reliably doing it and returning to you for the treat then change your position, and distance, working up to being a few feet away.
That is, in short, you reward your dog for being obedient to your commands or for his good behavior in general. Clicker training for dogs have come a long way since it was initially discovered as a means to train dolphins.
With a dog, the most effective reward is an immediate one, and if the dog is working away, for example ‘jump left’ you cannot reward with treats at the precise point. They have to work it out for themselves, unlike standard obedience where they are lured and rewarded.

This can certainly require some practice and plenty of attention as to what your dog is doing. Think of the clicker as a camera – you are trying to take a picture of the dog doing what you want it to do at that precise point.
Once reliably finding the entry you can then get them to complete a few more poles each time before you c&t. This makes for a confident, self assured dog and also one who trusts its handler as they’ve worked things through together. The clicker is a small palm-sized plastic box with a metal tongue in which you push quickly in order to produce a distinct sound.
If this happens, be sure to close your hand with the treat and wait until your dog leaves you alone. Well, it should always be after the click; can you imagine what would happen if you did it before the click? Continue these steps for numerous times a day and soon enough, your dog will be well-accustomed to the sound of the clicker.
Also, if, for example, you clicked at a bad time, you should treat the dog anyway as what you’re trying to achieve in clicker training initially is that your dog associates the clicking sound with a treat. Ideal if you want the dog to perform a complex behaviour but only reward the first bit of it, for example a weave entry. Once your dog is accustomed to this, your next goal would be to associate the clicking sound with your dog’s good behavior.
