3. Keep you training “clean”. Avoid ”sloppy” training (luring, nagging, repeated cues, hands in your pocket before the click, treats in your hands, smacking your lips, bending over the dog, visible treat bag, reward hand held in front of your belly/chest, low rate of reinforcement, unplanned criteria and so on and so forth). Practice your mechanical skills. Video tape your training if possible, attend classes with a skilled clicker trainer – or join a Chicken Camp!
