    It still surprises me, just how lots of people do not know about Xobodog Training (do a google search), despite the fact that many people solve their dog behavior problems because of this training program. Thanks to my cooworker who told me about Xobodog Training, I’ve have a better relationship with my beloved pet.

    Hello! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about Xobodog Training (just google it), but I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you thought about this dog training program called Xobodog Training? I have heard some unbelivable things about it.

    It’s like if you want to buy a new iPhone (the REWARD) so you get a job. Your boss doesn’t pay you with an iPhone – he pays you with money (the CLICK) – but you know that the money will get you the iPhone later.

  12. Bighoneydog Honey-GreatDane says:

    Yes – normally you have to reward a dog right away for him to make the association. That is in traditional dog training, when you are NOT using a marker signal. But clicker training is a bit different That is why the clicker is called a “bridging marker” – because it gives you a delay – so that you don’t have to give a treat IMMEDIATELY – you can give it 10s later and the dog will still know what it was for.

  13. Bighoneydog Honey-GreatDane says:

    Ha! Ha! Actually, if you met Honey, you would find that comment hilarious. She is famous for her soft mouth – all our trainers call her a “suckling calf”. But the reason I keep snatching my hand away is because she is REALLY slobbery and putting your hand in her mouth is a bit disgusting as it gets covered in slime & slobber and everythign you touch after that is sticky & horrible – so I try to keep my hand out of her mouth as much as possible! 🙂

  14. Bighoneydog Honey-GreatDane says:

    This way, he will know what the reward is for – even if he gets it 10s later. A CLICK is always followed by a reward (usually food treat, although can be other rewards, eg, tennis ball) – but it is only used in initial training to teach the dog/communicate what you want – once the dog understands the action & you put a command to the action, you should FADE the clicker and just reward with praise/treats. You can also use a ‘verbal marker’ eg. “YES!”

  15. Olivia Salas says:

    Well from what I have read you need to give him a treat right when he does something right otherwise he will not know what its for. But anyways. Not really into dogs or anything lol just what I have read. Bye 🙂

  16. Bighoneydog Honey-GreatDane says:

    No, actually, the CLICK itself is not the reward – it is just a MARKER to tell the dog that he did the right action and a reward is coming. It helps you to pinpoint the exact action that you want to reward (eg, the moment the dog lifts a paw) and also acts as a “bridge” – (eg. if the dog is far away & lies down on bed) – you can still tell him he did the right thing by marking that moment, even if you can’t put a treat in his mouth immediately.

  17. Olivia Salas says:

    The click is for when the dog does something right its a reward!

  18. SomGurly says:

    Very well done:)
    perhaps teach her to take the food from your hand more gently next:):)

  21. Djonkie Bonk says:

    I thought you were teaching it how to salsa.

  22. Inueyes6667 says:

    How bout training it to not try and swallow your hand with the treat. How would you do that?

  23. tay garcia says:

    He/she doesn’t know any commands just clicks. Are you going to have the click when they are biting other dogs???

  24. Aye Zed En says:
