Good Dogs! (07-06-2022) #6109: Carol Borden talks about how clicker training was developed for performing dolphins and then transferred to dog training. She discusses why it is not a good tool for human-dog communication because it is dependent on very subtle timing. Tracie talks about how using a clicker is something she could personally never master because it was too hard to click — and then give a treat — at the precise instant when the dog gave the desired response.
