I've started integrating clicker into training as we're working on harder concepts for my boys (they're having a little difficulty keeping a good heel) and it's working wonders. My reason is similar to another that was mentioned, I'm utilizing it to work in segments on getting a good heel (turn around, walk towards, come to side, etc.)

I started clicker training with Zeus today and at 7 weeks old he's already learned sit in 1 day (on occasion he will get distracted but majority of the time he gets it instantly). So far no complaints but this early into training we'll just have to wait and see. I'll work on sit and down tomorrow.

I also find that the clicker itself means something to the dogs and they understand its purpose so when we are practicing I use the word yes but when they see the physical clicker that is a whole different thing to them and they seem to know to try things over and over and think of new things...

Casper learns really quickly with clicker training. This is both a blessing and a curse. The reason is because he's so willing to offer new behaviors. Sometimes his "offerings" are less than optimal. How about I sit? or down? or backup? or jump on you? or the couch? or grab the leash? or roll over? or pick up my toy? or go to my bed? or dig a hole? grab a kleenex? There is an element of luring allowed, but sometimes he's just all over the place.
