Why Clicker Training is Better

Research has shown that any creature is more likely to learn and repeat behaviors that result in consequences it desires and enjoys. So clicker trainers provide consequences desired by their animal in exchange for behaviors desired by their trainers. Clicker Training is a purely positive reinforcement based approach to training. This type of training is a faster, easier method than traditional training methods. It also boasts many benefits including:

  • Accelerated learning
  • Strengthened human-animal bond
  • Long term recall of behaviors

  • Forgiveness of your mistakes
