Dog Tricks & Treats & Good Manners

Keywords: berkeley humane blogs

Behaviour science has proven that rewarded behaviours will continue and while it may take time, positive reinforcement such as this, teaches a dog in a fun and interesting way. The clicker acts as a bridge telling the animal that whatever behaviour they are doing at the time is correct and they will earn a reward. Marking the specific behaviour with a click or a “yes” tells the dog ‘this is the correct behaviour’ and prevents confusion as to which behaviour they are being rewarded for.
