Dog clickers and dog whistles are two different tools that can be used within your pup’s training regimen. A dog training whistle is often used as a cue to signal to your dog what you want them to do. The sound of the whistle carries a long way, and some can be used to create several signals—like to start, turn or stop.
The best dog clicker use is as an event marker. That means that it’s a way to tell your dog that they just exhibited the correct behavior—similar to a checkmark checking off an item on a list. This event marker can help encourage your pup to repeat the marked behavior and be used as a signal before a treat or praise as a reward is given.
