What is marker (or clicker) training? In a nutshell, it’s an animal training method based on behavioural psychology that relies on marking desirable behaviour and rewarding it. This black and white method of communication is based on positive reinforcement and will revolutionize the way that you train your dog.  This class will teach you about the power of training your dog with food and will focus on building the dog/handler relationship through engagement and motivation. During the class you will learn the basic concepts of luring, leash pressure and shaping of behaviours. We will also cover classical/operant conditioning and discuss how to build motivation in your dog through productive play. Marker training can be used to train any behaviour, from basic obedience and tricks to behavioural modification. There are no prerequisites for this class. It is recommended that you bring treats, a food pouch, leash and a clicker for your dog. The class has a limit of 10 dogs. Please book online now to reserve your spot.

          Testimonials

          Theresa

          Of all the kennels I have experienced in Kamloops, Obedience Unleashed is by far the best for many reasons. Daymon is extremely knowledgable in obedience training, as well as being patient yet consistent with interactions with the dogs. Both he and Heidi are fabulous with my highly excitable dog. The farm setting is amazing and much healthier for dog boarding /daycare than your typical institutional-like facility. The fees are very reasonable and the drive out is not only scenic but just the right length to allow all the day stress to be processed before you pick up your happy fur-baby. My dog has stayed for day boarding, overnight stays as well as obedience training and all have been very positive. Thanks Daymon and Heidi for raising the standards in Kamloops!

          Sarah

          Daymon at Obedience Unleashed is Awesome! We took his puppy Class with our 4 month old Boxer Mastiff and we are having excellent success with his training. Daymon is extremely knowledgeable and more than willing to stay after class to answer any questions. I was having difficulty with a command, and Daymon was able to show me exactly what to do by training with my pup. I have not used his boarding facility, but I would not hesitate to leave our boy with him. I know he would be well cared for! I highly recommend Daymon at Obedience Unleashed!
