Many of the things we want our dog to do in agility and obedience require the dog to focus on a particular location or object. Touch/target sticks are a wonderful tool for teaching targeting, contacts and weave poles, send-aways or go-outs, heeling, and lots more. For those of us that find a traditional target stick hard to handle when we're also trying to coordinate our clicker and treats, the Clik Stik features a clicker built into a collapsible target stick. This click/retractable target stick combination frees up one of the trainer's hands and means there's one less piece of equipment to drop, juggle, or lose. The Clik Stik includes a molded-in belt clip and extends from 6" to 23" in length. Includes a target training booklet by internationally renowned dog trainer Terry Ryan.
- The Clik Stik is fully telescoping.
- At full extension (23"), the Clik Stik reaches the nose of short dogs when the trainer is standing.
- The sound of the Clik Stik is less percussive than some clickers, which may be helpful in working with sensitive dogs.
Great for focusing my pup
My pup is being trained for detection work. I am training individual skills in isolation now. (She is 15 weeks) she currently is touching the green bead with her nose. Later we will teach her to detail her nose work, using this same clicker. I often use it as a regular clicker too. It does tend to fall out of my pocket, and I may start using a lanyard to keep track of it. The belt clip doesn't work as well for a short waisted individual.
