Seminar hosted by CLEAR Dog Training - in Brisbane, July 2014
Many dog owners are familiar with the concept of using a marker signal such as a clicker or whistle to make learning more enjoyable and quicker for dogs, dolphins, horses, pigs and parrots.
[Click HERE with sound turned on to see a 20 second video clip of a well-trained chicken!] What is not such common knowledge is that an event marker has for some years been used widely in North America and Europe with people. Instead of calling it 'clicker training for people' teaching with acoustical guidance for humans is known simply as TAGteach.

TAGteach (Teaching with Acoustical Guidance) is clicker training for people in all walks of life: gymnasts, coaches, athletes, dog trainers, teachers and business men. TAGteach enables already good communicators and trainers to become great communicators and trainers, and already great communicators and trainers to become brilliant communicators and trainers.
