I am reading "Fired up, frantic and freaked out" by Laura VanArdendonk Baugh.
On page 23 she describes the clicking process as the following steps:
Move the treat hand
So what's with this "pause" step?
I've been doing clicker training for a while now (and I think it's working) but I am doing it on the premise that I have to deliver the treat within 3 seconds of the click in order for the dog to make the connection. And the sooner the better so: better deliver the treat immediately after the click (that's probably within one second).
My question is:
Are there any clicker training experts or preferably someone with an animal behaviourist degree out there who can tell me if this pause step in the book is a typo?
