2. The first thing to teach your dog is one verbal (command) or audible (clicker) conditioned reinforcer. This conditioned reinforcer will enable you to communicate to the dog that she did something correct and will be rewarded for it. Learning a conditioned reinforcer will help the dog make a strong positive association between the reinforcer and various rewards. Once this is accomplished, the word (or click) and the rewards will become interchangeable for the dog. This will enable you to communicate correct behavior to your dog by simply saying “good” or “yes” or clicking the instant a correct behavior takes place.
