|Baby and Fido Need Your Guidance|
to Understand Good Manners
My dog, Stella, has a wash cloth that she’s learned to target using clicker training. Wherever she goes, I bring the wash cloth. Once it hits the ground she finds it and lies down. It works like a charm. I’ve included a short video of this trick. (A note to clicker trainers: the delayed click was because I was teaching her to lie down and stay).
When you’re first teaching this exercise you’ll click and treat as soon as the dog makes contact. You might want to bring in an experienced clicker trainer to help you with this.
