Clicker Training Pros and Cons

The advantages of using clicker training first and foremost are that we are using the science and technology of learning rather than tradition and folklore, in other words it uses the laws of learning that are always in effect, and with clicker training, learning models or rules are applied to an animal’s behaviour in order to predict consequences and work toward increasing certain behaviours (the behaviour we desire from the dog), or decreasing other behaviours (the behaviour we don’t like from the dog). Clicker training is not a quick fix or a magic dog training bullet. Dog owners who want to have a well behaved dog will need to learn the basics of dog learning theory and understand precisely how the clicker fits in with a dog training reward based strategy.

Clicker training works because it is founded on established scientific principles governing the learning process. When training a dog to do anything from agility, fly ball, search and rescue to just basic good dog manners involves operant behaviours meaning behaviour that is influenced by the events which immediately follow a specific action. In other words, with operant behaviour the dog is acting on the environment as much as the environment is acting on the dog.

If the dog begs and food follows, it is likely that the dog will repeat that behaviour. If a dog barks and attention follows, it is likely that the dog will repeat that behaviour. The dog learns that its behaviour has consequences.

Understanding how a dog learns gives us an advantage in that we can use these rules with certainty and immediacy to either increase or decrease the frequency of that behaviour.
