The Clicker Method

There is also a new training method called Clicker Training. It's the same method used to train dolphins and whales at Sea World.

Whenever your dog does even a tiny part of the retrieving exercise correctly, you "click" a small metal/plastic device between your thumb and forefinger (remember the old Jiminy Cricket clickers?) and then you quickly give a treat. You keep adding small parts of the exercise, "clicking and treating" for each successful part, until your dog puts it all together into a complete retrieve.
