Question Clicker Training?

Does anyone use a clicker when training your dog for left and right? I read that you can use the clicker and take an object, but make sure they are the same things, and point to the object and click the clicker if the dog is right and give them a treat! Does anyone have a different method that they use?

I taught Vendetta the words left and right. I would throw her ball to the left and say go LEFT girl she would follow her all so she would go left. If she is out in the field and I say go left she does once she had left down I taught her right the same way.

Lol that is true but I just kinda ignore them and progress in my own corner. And when the trainer sees my dog’s ability they normally become the "example dog". I dunno I guess I enjoy the setting of a training ring more so then my own house.

I hope that you set an example rather than come off as a bully yourself. It is hard to keep ones temper in check when you are around ignorant people.

I know it is hard but just smile and let your dog be your spokesmen. That is what i do. Vendetta is awsome compared to alot of dogs in the clu I belong to but yet they think APBT are a mence to society. When I had three of the four judges at our first UKC show comment on how well behaved she was compared to the 'non" aggressive dogs that was my reward.

I have found most people in a training setting are very friendly when they see a well behaved dog nomatter the breed, my Lucy get 10000 more attention than my poodle, everyone is always all over her talking about how well behaved she is and so pretty blah blah blah owww and cheza has such a pretty coat and is so smart for such a young pup lol it's funny because I’m sure some of these people don't like "pits' but in the training ring it's all about who presents themselves the best as to who gets the most positive attention IMO

I guess that is true to a point. pitulls are not really very well accepted up here. We have a lot of pitbulls around but most people are closet owners. Once they find out that you like pitbulls then they will talk up a storm and show off their dogs. Hardly anyone brings their pitulls to class. Mikado was the first therapy pitbull up here he broke down a lot of barriers. Now Vendetta is doing her her part. I sometimes feel like I'm working alone up here though.

that sucks, i don't normally have to many problems but then my guys are obviously friendly and truth be told there are so many pit/pit mixes there everywhere. good and bad. i do get some heat but i think i take for granted how easy i have it, i mean every time we go to petsmart or the flea market i have everyone all over the girls and parents bringing there kids over to pet them. maybe it's just my part of town i live on IDK

to the OP, I hate clickers only because I am not coordinated enough to use them. Another reason I do not like them is most ppl do not use them correctly and create more problems than they had. I am also not good at saying left or right when I am running, my brain just does not work like that! lol
What I do and what I teach to clients is "out" for a 90 degree turn away from me, "tight" a 180 degree turn towards me, "Turn" for a 180 degree turn away from me. I also teach a "Move" for a lateral push away with no change of direction.

For serious agility competitors or even your basic agility dog right and left can be very vague cues and ppl tend to make them mean several directions. Dog can learn a huge vocabulary and that way you do not have any grey areas and the dog knows what you are asking. That is the major reason I stay away from right and left commands.

What ever you decide to teach your dog you can use marker training and say "yes" instead of clicking when they do a good behavior. True clicker training is when you wait patiently and with no direction from you, you click the behavior when the dog offers it. This true clicker training takes a really long time and is hard to get away from later when you try to wean them off the clicker. If you are using the clicker just as a marker then saying "yes" works the same.
