STEP 1: PREPARE TREATS
Slice a ham, cheese or cooked chicken into small pieces. The pieces should be small enough for your dog to quickly swallow without the need to chew them. Usually, you can spend up to 200 treats per training session. Bought treats are not advised because most of them your dog will need to chew before eating them making your training progress a lot slower. Make sure that treats are good enough for your dog to be interested in them.
STEP 2: CLICK AND TREAT
Click, wait 2 seconds then give your dog a treat. By doing this you are telling your dog: "Look, buddy, you have done something good after this sound a delicious treat is coming". The process is called charging the clicker. At the start, you should always use the clicker. It is easier and less confusing for your dog to hear a neutral sound as a marker he has done something good than a word you can say when talking to somebody with your dog being around.
STEP 3: REPETITION
Dogs are like small children, they need some repetition to learn. So keep repeating this process for 10-15 minutes. NEVER CLICK WITHOUT A TREAT COMMING AFTER IT. If you click and don't give your dog a treat you will confuse him, and you will lose your marker of good behavior. Meaning you will need to do double work of training him again that clicker means he has done something good.
STEP 4: TESTING
Try to click and see if your dog is expecting a reward. If he looks at you or starts searching for a reward it means he understands what click means. Don't forget after each click there must be a reward. Happy training
