‘Using the clicker helps you understand exactly what it is you are trying to communicate to the dog. The click is never ambiguous, as the voice can often say “good boy” but with a less than enthusiastic delivery it will sound false, and the dog will sense it. We talk and talk and talk to our dogs and the click successfully cuts through all the waffle.’ Taken from http://www.learningaboutdogs.com/html/clicker_training.html
Clicker Training is a wonderful way to teach your dog using hands off, positive methods which helps your dog to learn to offer correct behaviour rather than owners constantly having to ask for it. Clicker training can be incorporated by owners into all levels from puppy class up to Gold Good Citizen. Trained specifically as part of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Award, Muttamorphosis currently runs a clicker training class for dogs aged over 6 months of age. The course runs for 6 weeks, every Wednesday night at 7pm at Denton Burn Community Centre and costs £100 in total.
With on emphasis on getting your dog to focus on you, clicker training can be applied to all aspects of living with a pet dog. It helps to clearly communicate what it is you want your dog to do, using reward based techniques, and results in dogs who are keen to listen and learn. All basic obedience commands are taught as well as some agility. Lots of fun is guaranteed.
Places are limited to insure all dogs get the attention they deserve and owners do not feel overwhelmed and as such, these courses usually book up in advance. Please get in touch using the contact form to enquire about the next course date or to book your place. Please note: we can only accept fully vaccinated dogs. Muttamorphosis offers a loyalty discount to customers who have attended earlier training courses. Please ask about this when you book.
