Hi! I'm new to clicker training and am expecting my clicker to arrive Wednesday! I have a 9 year old son with autism who we've decided needed his own puppy. We already have two dogs, but they are both older and not so interested in romping with an energetic young boy. We ended up with a beautiful Black German Shepherd/Brindle Pitt rescue. She's 9 months old and seems SO eager to please and VERY smart, so I'm really counting down the minutes till the clicker gets here!!! I have watched probably a hundred videos on clicker training dogs as well as training service dogs and already have my list of undesirable traits we need to train her out of (the major one being she is a mouther) and the list of tricks we would like to start her off with (she already has most of the basics which we will go over with the clicker.) and I understand the repetition process... but I haven't come across how LONG each day (or how many TIMES each day) is desirable... I don't want to spend TOO much time at this and I'm awful eager, so I think that could be an issue!!! Any suggestions on what would be ideal? 3x a day 20 minutes each? more? less??? Will it just "work out" as I learn what she can handle??? thanks!! Oh, and I will so continue with updates on her progress!!!
