As katielovesleo mentioned, its about marking the behaviour you like. The studies on clicker training are extensive. I have had many clients who don't like using the clicker itself, however love the theory so they mark with a "YES".

Basically, there are amazing books and information on clicker training... so its easy to use, positive and as mentioned you ignore the bad and reward the good.

I have not seen clicker training fail when done properly. Don't forgot to prime your clicker

Prime? You mean load it? Is that the same thing as basically introducing the clicker? Sorry, I know some of the terms, but not all. And should the introduction be a session by itself? I shouldn't introduce the clicker and then, once they get it, immediately start training, right?

We started by capturing a behavior you like. When your dog sits click and treat. Don't insert a command until they "get it". You'll know he "got it" when he is sitting down to the point it is annoying. THEN insert the command "sit" as he is sitting. Click and treat.

I think she means load it lol. I was wondering the same thing when I read it.
You don't have to make it only one session, I have went on from there to capturing a sit or capturing eye contact. But it doesn't matter.
