Does Clicker Training for Pets Really Work?

The popularity of clicker training devices seems to develop in waves. These waves closely follow media attention of the dog and cat methodology of clicking training.   Yup, you read that right! … Dog and CAT clicker training.

Many more cat owners are discovering the usefulness of clicker training for their cats and it is gaining both media attention and popularity.

The premise behind clicker training is that an owner’s voice carriers hundreds of tones and inflections that can confuse a pet.  A single phrase like “Good Doggy” said with the incorrect inflection can leave your puppy wondering what in the world they did wrong.

A clicker comes with one specific tone and inflection, making it easier for your pet (cat or dog) to understand that they did something right. Clicker training devices, along with pet treats can do wonders in training your new or seasoned pet.  The phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is simply not true.

Pictured to the right is the Clik-Stik recommended by Terry Ryan, manufactured by Premier Pet Products and sold at  GregRobert’s Pet Store. Recommended by renowned train Terry Ryan, the combination Clik Stik frees your hands and means one less item for you to “drop, juggle or lose.

We also like the click and play squid – which is a clicker built into a reward toy.
