Dog Training

Clicker Training For Dogs!

What Is Clicker Training? – Clicker Training is a fun and exciting way of communicating with and training your dog. This science based method of training has been successfully used for years with marine mammals and animal actors on TV sitcoms, commercials and movies. It has now taken the dog world by storm.

Clicker Training is based on the behavioral theory called “Operant Conditioning”. It uses positive reinforcement to strengthen desired behaviors. Simply put, clicker training uses a distinct marker signal –a clicker- to mark a desired behavior. The clicker sound or marker says to the dog, “YES!, that is exactly what I wanted you to do and now you will receive a worthwhile reward. The reward motivates the dog to repeat the behavior and the clicker gives the dog the exact information about what action the dog did that actually won the reward.

Animals learn best when their own capabilities are encouraged and directed into behaviors that help them live harmoniously with humans. Clicker trainers set their dogs up to succeed then reward them for their successes. It is fun and easy to learn for you and your dog. Clicker training is a powerful animal training tool. Best of all the dogs love it! They have a clear understanding of what they are doing right, and they get a chance to earn rewards like food treats, favorite toys, attention and praise through their own actions. With Clicker training you do not need choke chains or pinch collars because you and your dog work together as a team. You can clearly and positively communicate with each other and build a long lasting positive, trusting and respectful relationship.

Laura Perkins

B.S., Animal Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

M.S., Applied Behavior Analysis, University of North Texas

Laura has a bachelor’s degree in animal science and a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis. She began training dogs at a young age in 4-H and went on to compete in AKC agility and obedience. It was in 4-H that Laura became interested in teaching others about dog training and care. She had the opportunity to lead the dog training classes as a senior member of the program. During college, she participated in a study abroad course with Dr. Roger Abrantes where she learned about canine behavior and body language in addition to the theory behind canine learning.

Laura loved learning about the science behind animal training and sought out a graduate program to study the topic. Laura studied applied behavior analysis at theUniversityofNorth Texasunder the supervision of Dr. Jesús Rosales-Ruiz. The program provided a strong background in operant conditioning and creating an environment that will lead to successful learning. When not in class or working on research projects, Laura spent her time helping at the Heard Animal Sanctuary where a group of students trained exotic animals to perform behaviors necessary for providing veterinary care.

In addition to working at Doggone Fun!, Laura offers private consulting through Perkins Animal Behavior Consulting. Her website is: PerkinsAnimalBehavior.weebly.com.
