All About Clicker Training and How to Utilize It

Clicker training for dogs was popularized in the 1990s by dog trainer Karen Pryor, although it had existed as a form of animal training before being introduced to the dog world.

Clicker training is a form of operant conditioning, which itself is a type of learning process where behaviors are reinforced or discouraged through punishment or reinforcement. An example of operant conditioning would be a child touching a hot stove. The pain inflicted by the heat discourages them from performing the behavior again. Likewise, giving a child an allowance for doing chores encourages them to do their chores unasked next time.
