This video was written and produced by Ed Frawley. It's goal is to introduce the dog trainer to the world of marker training in dogs. It sets the stage for the series of traning DVD's that Ed later produced with Michael Ellis.

Marker training (also called clicker training) is one of the most profound systems of training dogs.

In reality this is a training system that is not that difficult to learn. In it's most basic form it's a method of communication that is very very clear for the dog. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in the training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train.

Dog training is a learned skill. The goal of this DVD is to introduce dog trainers to the details of training with markers and demonstrate the finer points of the marker system. It not only demonstrate the use of markers in the basic commands, but also includes examples of how markers can be used in more difficulty exercises, like the retrieve and the send away.

Trainers must understand the details of this system if they are to be successful. Once they grasp the concept and learn to apply it to their training they create dogs that become problem solvers and dogs that love the work.

Marker training can be started on 8 week old puppies or older dogs. It is a purely positive method of training dogs that is 100% non-confrontational. That is one of the reasons it can work with dominant dogs. This system goes a long way towards building or repairing the bond between handler and dog.
