This is a place to gain some understanding of dog behavior and to assist people in training their dogs and dealing with common behavior problems, regardless of the method(s) used. This can cover the spectrum from non-aversive to traditional methods of dog training. There are many ways to train a dog. Please avoid aggressive responses, and counter ideas and opinions with which you don't agree with friendly and helpful advice. Please refrain from submitting posts that promote off-topic discussions. Keep in mind that you may be receiving advice from other dog owners and lovers... not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a trainer or behaviorist!

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I am here to offer my services and answer questions you may have about dog training. I have joined a few sites recently to try to reach out and help the pet owner. I respect all training techniques, as long as the animal is healthy, happy, and learning, and have found over many years there are many ways to train a dog. I will try to keep my responses brief.

Joel,

I have a question about an episode of the show I saw once. I've thought of this often since I saw the episode, so I welcome the opportunity to get your feedback.

My husband and I were watching the show one Saturday morning and you were instructing a client on how to use a clicker. We were both confused because it seemed as though you clicked multiple times followed by a single treat.

I've always been taught that one click = one treat. Can you tell me if you believe there is an exception to this and if so, why?

Welcome to the board, you'll find dogster B & T is a wonderful training community!

Hi Joel and Foster!

Welcome to Dogster. I am not familiar with your show but think it's great to add more professional trainers to the forums. Lots of discussion goes on here and I think it's always helpful to have several different solutions for the problems that come up with people's dogs. Your site looks great.

That guy was not me. I did the first year of the show, and he did the second year. By the way, you are not the only one that has mentioned that to me. There are many people who use a clicker scratching their heads.

Thank you.. and remember that when I mention something that works, it's just something that works for me, and the people I have shown it to. One thing that I have learned is that there are many ways to train a behavior.
