Reward marker & Clicker

Reward maker is a word such as ‘good’ or ‘yes’ and it is used at the exact moment your dog performed correctly.


The clicker is a useful tool you can use for marking a behaviour. It is a thumb size box with a metal tongue that makes a click-click sound when pressed.


The clicker sound is very short, crisp and distinct and can make a precise instant. Clickers always sound the same and is therefore one of the advantages than your voice.

How to use the clicker

To be able to use the clicker your dog has to charge up the clicker first.


This is done by giving a click and immediately giving a treat. It won’t be long until your dog had made the association that a click means a treat. To charge up the clicker properly the click and treat should be done between 20-30 times.


3 rules for using a clicker or reward marker

  1. Click to mark any behaviour you wish to encourage
  2. Click instantly while the correct behaviour happens (while the dog is in the correct position)
  3. Follow each click by a treat (no multiple clicks)
