After that I hadn't tried the clicker again until recently. I began trying the clicker about a week ago and Dobby is still afraid on the noise. I've tried every method I could to prime him for the clicker including going through almost a whole bag of treats but nothing helps.
Normally as a marker I use the word "yes" which functions in the same way as the clicker for letting the dog know what you want. Currently, Dobby's working on standing on top of an object so that we can eventually move to standing in a bowl. I use the word use as soon as his feet touch the bowl. As he succeeds I ask for more before I give the "yes" marker and reward.
One of Dobby's many tricks taught using the word "yes" as a marker instead of a clicker.
What marker or training tools do you use?
