Question by average jane: “Clicker Training” for a dog?
For those of you who are familiar w/this, what are the pros, cons and best uses for it? Any breeds that it is NOT effective on?

Answer by Ashera
I used the same principle to train my dog, only I used my voice instead of a clicker. I think it would be annoying to need to constantly carry it around just for training. It worked very well for my dog, most behaviors she could learn in a couple of days. I think it’s a very effective and fun method of training.

There are some down sides. If your dog is not very food motivated, the training won’t work as well. Your dog can also learn to only behave when you have treats if you aren’t careful. You will also have to be careful not to overfeed the treats or your dog will gain weight.

I don’t think it’s breed specific how well the training will work, it’s mostly going to depend on your dog’s personality.
