Basically, you want to "catch" good behavior with the clicker. What this means is that you want to train your dog that whenever you click (which means he has done something good.) The way we train the dog to respond to the clicker is simply by clicking and immediately treating the dog. It won't take your dog long to understand that whenever he hears the clicker he'll get a treat. This is an essential step in clicker training your dog. Another term that we will use is jackpot. This is an extra reward that you give your dog, usually when he has done exceptionally well or performed the trick perfectly for the first time.
Step 1: Click and give your dog a treat. Step 2: Repeat about 30 times. This teaches your dog to associate the click with the treat. Step 3: To maintain this connection, it is important to follow the rule: Never click without treating and never treat without clicking.
