We’ve actually been training calmness a lot with Gummi, it’s one of those things a hyper puppy like him needs. The clicker is brilliant for this since you can shape the calmness gradually and very clearly show the dog what he’s rewarded for. It’s very convenient to do this on the couch – he needs to lie down and rest his head on my knee to earn his reward. He also has to actually relax his muscles, which is something I can feel since he’s touching me.

He is doing a lot better with this lately – both on the couch and the dog bed.

  1. Our mom bought a clicker months ago and do you think she’s used it yet? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – she really needs to put this thing to good use rather than having it sit there and collect dust!

    Love ya lots
