The Payson Roundup has a nice article on dog training using the clicker that doesn't focus on the clicker itself as much as modifying behavior.
The Clicker Puppy DVD has been nominated for the Dog Training Excellence 2005 award and the Innovation Award 2005 by the International Positive Dog Training Association. This is awarded based on votes from peers. It would be great chance for media exposure for clicker training if the DVD were to win this award.
This story of clicker training in the news comes from a ClickerExpo attendee who, well, I'll let her describe it: Below is a link to an article which recently ran in our local paper. The catch is, although I am clicker trainer, clickers are not directly mentioned. I was responding to a previous article promoting Bark Busters and their philosophy stressing the importance of insuring your dominance over the dog. The article also stressed how it is so unnecessary to give your dog treats to get him to respond.
Joan Orr, M.Sc., ClickerExpo faculty member and TAGteach co-founder, has won an award from the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). Joan's paper, "Talk to the Animals: Clicker Training as a Communication Tool," won a Dogwise John Fisher Scholarship 2005 award. Congratulations, Joan!
