Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here tonight to talk about the absurdity of clicker training. That’s right, you heard me correctly, clicker is bad, and I’m going to tell why.
First of all, let’s start with the obvious. Clicker is for dogs, not humans. I mean, can you imagine your boss giving you a treat every time you complete a task? Actually, that might not be such a bad idea.
But seriously, clicker training is just plain silly. It’s like training a seal at the circus. You give them a fish every time they do a trick, and eventually, they’ll jump through hoops for you. But last time I checked, dogs aren’t seals, and we’re not at the circus.
And what happens when you run out of treats? Are you just supposed to say “good job” and hope your dog understands? It’s like trying to speak a foreign language without any words.
But the real kicker (pun intended) is that clicker actually reinforces bad deportment. By rewarding your dog every time they do something, they’ll start to associate that behavior with a treat. So if your dog jumps on people, and you give them a treat, they’ll think that jumping on people is a good thing. And let’s face it, nobody wants a dog that jumps on people.
So there you have it, folks. Clicker training is bad. It’s like trying to teach calculus to a goldfish. It might work in some situations, but in the end, it’s just not worth it. Stick to the old-fashioned way of training your dog. Use your voice and some good old-fashioned positive reinforcement. And if that doesn’t work, just give them a belly rub. That always does the trick.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I know some of you out there swear by clicker training. You’ve got your clicker in one hand, and a bag of treats in the other. But let’s be real, if your dog only listens to you because you’re bribing them with treats, then you’ve got a problem. A well-trained dog should listen to you out of respect and trust, not just because they’re hoping for a snack.
And let’s talk about the noise of the clicker itself. I mean, seriously, have you ever tried to watch TV or have a conversation while someone is incessantly clicking a little plastic box? It’s enough to drive anyone crazy. Plus, what happens if you accidentally click the clicker when you didn’t mean to? Your dog will be expecting a treat for doing nothing, and you’ll be left wondering what just happened.
In conclusion, folks, clicker training is just a passing fad. It may seem like a good idea at first, but in reality, it’s just not practical. Stick to the tried and true methods of dog training. Use your voice, be patient, and show your furry friend some love. After all, isn’t that what having a dog is all about?
