Clicker Training For Any Animal, Even…A Goldfish?   2 comments

Early development of clicker training was done by trainers working with large marine mammals. You can’t physically manipulate a killer whale into position, nor can you give them a leash correction, so a new method had to be developed!

Virtually any animal can be clicker trained; horses, cats, and chickens are some o f the more common subjects.

Recently I came across this post by Mary, the host of the Clicker Carnival, at her blog Stale Cheerios, in which she describes clicker training her goldfish! Watch this video she put up showing her progress.

If a goldfish can be clicker trained, your dog can be clicker trained!

  1. Thanks for posting the video of Blaze!

    He has been a fun little fish so far.

    It’s amazing the number of people who think a fish can’t be trained.

    Probably about the same number of people who think that their dog can’t be trained!!

    Of course, most animals can be. The untrainable animal is usually not the fault of the animal!
