Re: Trouble With Clicker Training

If it is an old style clicker (not the ones with the raised button) try putting a small piece of blue tack on the clicker, it muffles the sound, then you can gradually reduce the amount of blue tack as your dog gets used to the sound. If you have a raised button clicker then I read somewhere that yo...

Anyway I finally got s...
