Browsing the a range of net email lists for clicker training, you may possibly get the opinion thatability the clicker is the utmost over-usedability piece of equipment in clicker training! Let's examine thatability more closely...
"Over-used" suggests thatability something is in use much often thatability it should be. What could be the nuisance next to this?
I gut feeling your clicker may well actually wear-outability and suspend serviceable. This unquestionably isn't a big accord though, you can always get a new clicker for a couple of dollars.Post ads:

Maybe the utility of the click itself is vitiated by over-use? Grounds would recommend that, so time-consuming as the chink is always followed by a firsthand reinforcer, the more than oft a clicker is used, the more good point it has. I would advice thatability clumsy temporal arrangement can confuse many dogs and de-valueability the clicker as a research tool, but providing thatability your timing is flawless (practise lacking a dog until it is) and thatability you track up on the dot with a collection of capital reinforcers, your clicker should solely gain effectiveness with continual use.
Accordingly, subsequent up next to an dislike (intentionally or otherwise), or failing to track up beside a firsthand reinforcing stimulus will create your clicker smaller number significant.
So i don't know the difficulty is thatability the clicker is in use once it isn't needful to use a clicker? The clicker gives you a totally precise method of marking teeny teeny pieces of activity. Not all behavioursability we option to fortify are midget. Stays are a keen illustration. Our criteria mightiness be thatability our dog stays sitting for 20 seconds. If we click, we really aren't adding up any practical figures. We power as all right conscionable flip a nourishment or a bubble.Post ads:

On the opposite hand, let's envisage our dog is seated nicely for 20 seconds so we click and treat. Unfortunately, at the correct tick thatability we clicked, our dog elevated his paw...
Of course, finding thisability hold-up would be pretty unambiguous. Only fillet clickingability the sequent paw raises and sound lone once the paw is on the earth.
So are clickersability over-used? Yes, clickersability are sometimes utilized where theyability don't trade in a distinct benefit, but I wouldn't get too decorated up roughly it. Construct your own choices, but create in no doubt you always use a clicker once you want true temporal order. Zilch other comes approximate for effectiveness, openness and broad convenience.
