Running time: 3 hours, 7 minutes
Emily, aka Kikopup, has compiled in this 2-disc DVD set what she believes to be the most important exercises, skills, and clicker training concepts on that have led to her success in training complex tricks and behaviors (as seen on her popular YouTube channel "kikopup.") You will learn how to train behaviors using capturing, free shaping, and luring; how to teach your dog to offer behaviors; how to use targeting; how to add a cue, fade a lure, move on to using less reinforcement, and more.
This DVD was made for those new to clicker training, as well as for advanced trainers. The material is catered for beginners who do not yet know scientific jargon and for those who do not speak English as their first language. Although this DVD covers the foundations of clicker training skills, it also contains personal insights and tips from Emily, as well as information about trickier subjects, like fixing a broken behavior and training without the intentional use of "no reward markers." The DVD focuses only on the skills necessary for training behaviors using a clicker, and does not focus on behavior modification or solving behavioral problems.
