I bought a clicker and was clicking and giving treats like in the video but the more I did it the more the sound seemed to scare my dog. I would click, she’d back away and reluctantly come get her treat. Do you think if I keep doing small training sessions of just this she’ll get used to the sound? Thanks!
It might be better to start with a sound that isn’t so sharp. There’s a few things you can do:
-Wrap the clicker in a cloth to muffle the noise
-Use the clicking sound of a retractable pen
-Have someone stand in a nearby room and click the clicker while you feed your dog treats
Make sure the click always predicts the appearance of a treat, and not the other way around. You don’t want your dog to learn that a treat means the scary noise is about to happen. Do very short sessions, like you said. Maybe toss the treat toward her so she doesn’t have to approach the clicker. I would focus on desensitizing her to the sound before you start doing any “real” training. So do a bunch of two-minute sessions of just click/treat, click/treat, click/treat.
Hope that helps.

You and your 3 lost dogs are the BEST! Thank you!
I have a Boston Terrier 2 years old named Tobby, this dog gave me many problems. It ate my shoes, urinated in the room, the furniture stank. A teach my dog to behave with some training videos I found online. Pay 1 dollar for a trial period of 3 days.. And 37 monthly payment, but worth every penny. My dog is very well behaved, and does not make those deviltries and I have taught him many tricks. This is the location where I found the training: http://www.theonlinedogtrainers.com
