This is a few minutes of a human clicker game we played at a recent Discdog B&B. The idea here is to teach a person to perform a skill using a clicker and to talk about some of the nuances in communicating and teaching your dog. It really fits in with the idea that Performance is not Understanding which we’ve been talking about for the last few days here on the blog.
This is pretty standard schtick for our human clicker training. We are looking to highlight 4 keys of marker training:
- training is a dialogue
- training is about more than getting the dog to do stuff
- what you intend to teach the dog is important.
- Conceptual understanding > contextual understanding
