Being a Successful Clicker Trainer — Tip 6

Distance. Now that your dog will sit for up to a minute with one or two distractions, you may add distance.  In Tip 5 you practiced walking circles around your dog.  Now that your dog is accustomed to you shifting positions, adding distance is simple.  After your dog sits on cue, take one step ahead of him then turn and face him.  At this point you do not want to combine duration yet, so return to him, then click and treat. Once he gets this and sits comfortably, gradually add steps away from him, one step at a time before you stop to face him. 

stay tuned for Tip 7
