A well-trained dog is only...A Click Away
“Clicker training" is a term used to describe a scientifically proven method or dog training that has been used by professional animal trainers for years and is now available to you. It has become increasingly popular in the last decade because it is:
- Easy to use
- Fast & inexpensive
- Effective with puppies and dogs
The scientific term for clicker training is operant conditioning. Operant conditioning is the way any animal (including the human kind) interacts with and learns from its environment. Simply put, an animal tends to repeat an action that has a positive consequence and tends not to repeat one that has a negative consequence. At The Bigger Brain, learn how trainers & dog owners can take advantage of that natural tendency to teach dogs obedience, agility, service work and much more.
The Clicker itself is a small plastic box with a metal strip that makes a sharp, clicking sound when pushed and released. At The Bigger Brain, you will learn the value of this unique sound in communicating with your dog.
Much has been written about clicker training, but, by far, the best way to understand this training method is to see it in action. At the bigger Brain, you will learn exactly how and why clicker training works. See demonstrations with dogs and then clicker train a dog before you leave the first session.
We will not teach you how to bark or wag your tail but you will learn how to “Speak Dog,” or in other words, understand how dogs think and communicate with us and in turn learn how to effectively train your dog. The Bigger Brain offers many learning opportunities such as group lessons, puppy classes, private lessons, off-leash training, AKC Canine Good Citizen training and evaluation and behavior modification consultations.
