I am not a clicker trainer, nor do I always use a verbal behavior marker. Most of the time, when a dog does what I’d like the dog to do, I simply give the dog a reward. It may be a treat, a toy or access to something the dog wants like going outside or getting a good tummy rub.
I rarely set up formal training sessions with dogs. Since I’m teaching every day manners to dogs, I prefer on the job training. When dogs are present, regardless of what I’m doing, I’m also aware of what they are doing. I generally have three choices in response to their behavior at the moment.
