About the Clicker Workshop
Do you want to build on existing skills?
Do you want to have fun with your dog?
Clicker training is reward based method of training which describes the process of pinpointing appropriate behaviour with the use of a small mechanical device that makes a short, distinct "click" sound. This clear form of communication is an effective and humane way to train your dog and builds trust and understanding between the dog and their guardian.
This workshop will be a mixture of both theoretical and practical training and will provide those attending a clear foundation on which to build their future training.
