These breeds do especially well with the clicker because it gives them a clear reason why they should do something they might not see the reason for otherwise. Mr. really wants! With this in mind, whenever you show your dog a clicker, you flip that same switch in her head that says something good is about to happen.You know how excited your dog gets whenever she hears the bag of treats rustling? Or when you pick up the leash? She has made associations with these activities and learned that something good is about to happen. The rustling of the treat bag signals a meal occasion and the leash is associated with going for a walk. It's just a wonderful thing for puppies to learn.
