Video: Dog and Pony Tricks Using Clicker Training

Clicker training is a hands-off way of training with an animal that doesn’t involve punitive punishments or force. Clicker training is mentally stimulating and encourages the animal to think. Clicker training says “If you do this (a behavior), something good will happen to you (positive reinforcement). Clicker training is gentle, effective and fun for both the animal and the person.

Big horses and Miniature horses perform tricks and liberty skills learned with clicker training. In this video, you’ll see the following:

  • push a ball
  • retrieve a bucket
  • side pass
  • heel off line
  • come
  • back up
  • get in the van
  • talk (like Mr. Ed)
  • sit
  • pivot on a pedestal
  • lie down
  • wave
