Clicker Training for Agility

Clicker training is perfect for dog agility training. Whether you train for fun or compete in agility, clicker training will help you and your dog achieve better communication and better performance.

One of the most important aspects of agility is timing - you need to reinforce your dog at the right timing of the jump, the touch, the tunnel, the weave poles, and all other obstacles.

The clicker, allows you to do that without missing the moment your dog did something that deserves reinforcement.

Please send us your training ideas and videos so we can share it with other beginner and advanced agility trainers.
