Clicker Training For Dogs

Clicker training for dogs is one of the most useful tools for teaching your dog new behaviours and improving their known behaviours. Clickers serve as a great communication tool in rectifying aggressive or reactive dog behaviours.

Clicker Training for Dogs

In dog training, think of a clicker as an event marker – it let’s your dog understand what you want it to do when you produce the clicking sound. When you click at the exact instant your dog performs a desirable action, you are telling it that you approve this behaviour. For example, if you click and your dog sits down, this means that it knows what command you are giving. Clicker training is also a great way of teaching through positive reinforcement.

Clicker Training for Dogs

One question I have been asked quite frequently by dog owners is, “Why use a clicker when I can do the same with my voice?” You may definitely use your voice to give commands, and in some situations, it proves to be more helpful when dog owners don’t have their clicker at hand. However, my experience as a dog trainer and behaviourist as well as research has shown that the rate a dog learns new behaviours significantly increases when a clicker is used. Not only that, it also reduces the number of reinforcements needed to refine certain behaviours.

Clicker Training for Dogs

There are several benefits of clicker training. Your dog learns quickly with a clicker because it allows your dog to understand in a clear and concise way what you expect it to do and the behaviour it is being rewarded for. You can also speed the training by doing repetitions of the same behaviour without worrying about affecting your dog’s motivation or losing its interest. Clicker training builds a strong relationship between the trainer and the dog, as it establishes a line of commands for better communication.

Client Reviews

  • Neena has given us hope. He closely watched our dog's behaviour and gave us recommendations for training steps to try to help him overcome his separation anxiety which had become a real burden. We know it will take time and we are already making great progress. Our training is tailored to our dog and instructions specific to life in our home which increases speed of results. Thank you.


  • Our dog has stayed with Neena many times and always comes back to us happy and well exercised. It's not easy leaving your dog with someone else, but knowing he takes such good care and treats her like part of the family is very reassuring. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone looking for boarding or training for their dog.


  • Working with Patchani Pamboot has been the best thing that happened in my career. I am a vet by profession and have worked with Peter on a number of projects, and I can with certainty attest that he is one of the best military-certified dog trainers I have met. Every time I refer my clients to him, all I receive are thank notes and much appreciation from my clients. Keep doing a good job, buddy.
