This is a video of Lucky - a dog I rescued almost 3 years ago. We love him to bits but he has been one of the most challenging dogs I have ever had.
We have never been able to put anything on him except a collar (and even then we risk being bitten!).
Recently I attended a course on TTouch and Clicker Training with Sarah Fisher and her TTouch Team in Bath, UK. The lessons I have learnt from Sarah and her team have been most enlightening.
I have been using the Tellington Touch on Lucky and "clicker" training him for just 2 weeks and the results have been amazing.
In this video, I am putting on a Thunder Shirt (a specially designed shirt for dogs with various issues) recommended by Sarah Fisher.
This isn't a very elegant video (as I am still learning alot about clicker training), but there are 2 main things to note:
1. I have now managed to get the Thunder Shirt on Lucky in 1 minute 20 seconds.
2. Lucky has not snapped or growled at me like he normally does.
When I first started two weeks ago, it took me 30 minutes!!!
Will be posting more videos of Lucky and his progress with the clicker!
