|Sugar, I think there shouldn't be any problem with clicking one dog with the others around (as long as all dogs know what the clicker means). Assuming you're using click and treat, the other dogs can see which dog is getting the treat. If they have learned click=treat, and they get no treat, they should realize that the click wasn't directed at them. Also, you will most likely be making eye contact with only the dog that you clicked, another clue for the other dogs. I only have two dogs, but it's never been a problem to clicker train both at once, as long as I wasn't trying to free-shape the same behavior for both dogs (I can only look so many directions at once! ) Also, I teach clicker classes and have never had any problem with group clicker confusion. The combination of eye contact, click and treat is usually clear enough for the dog to single out which click is "his".
