How to train your dog to ring a bell
I have featured my dog, a Boston Terrier named Dino, in a few of my videos. In one of my videos I happened to show Dino ringing a bell to indicate that he needs to go outside to use the bathroom. A few people asked me how I was able to train a dog to do such a trick.
Training a dog is actually quite easy using the clicker method. The clicker method is really just classical conditioning.
So I thought I would create a video showing some of the basic training techniques. I know this is different than my usually political/satire videos. But it was a nice day and I thought it would be fun to work with my dog.
