Need a clicker for clicker training of puppy, help?

Hi Guys, I recently brought a male Labrador Puppy. He has been sucessfully potty trained. I want to start the clicker training. He has learned to give his paws when asked. But so far I've only been using the word "yes" when he does the requested action, followed by a reward which is his favourite treat. I'm now training him to relieve no where except on a newpaper and so far he has responded very well. I want to buy a clicker as that's more effective way of communication than verbal clues. I've been to several pet shops, toy shops for this clicker but have only failed. I've checked Internet to see if thay can be made at home but can't find anything.

Hi Dev, my Lab is just over two months old. We have chosen a little space on the Ladders of our house which leads towards the roof. We have covered that space with newspapers. You can also choose the place where you want him to eliminate. Once you have decided, take him there as often as possible. We take ours after every two hours or after feeding him or after playing with him. Once he steps onto the newpapers, he starts peeing on his own. When you do that for the first time, u can place a urine ( of ur puppy ) soaked cloth or paper on the newspapers. The smell will encourage him to pee on there. You'll have to continue this for many weeks so that the dog can get used to it. There are chances you may meet with failures initially but every failure will give you a lesson to learn. If the puppy eliminates in your room or anywhere else except where you want, don't scold him, just clean off the place and continue the business.
My puppy now does pooty on his own, we don't have to take him upstairs, however, we do have to take him for urination because puppies have weak bladders and they may not able to control for more than a minute or so. They may pee before they go to the spot. These are accidents and you should continue teaching him.
Each time he does it on his own, I offer him a treat ( there are many available in pet shops ) and praise him. The puppy will understand that peeing at the right place will give out great results and he'll make a habbit of it.

Hi Dev, he's Male. Another thing I want to share with you. Most Labs, before they do potty, give a clean indication : Moving in circles and sniffing the ground. If your Lab does the same, it means he's selecting the place to do it. When he's doing it, immediately take him to the right place. This worked for me. You can pick him up and take there even while he's peeing. This will reinforce the idea in him that the place where he was intially peeing was not the right place and the place where you took him is the right place.
If you are thre in Facebook, send me a friend request, we can discuss this real time. My Facebook link is: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=h ome#!/profile.php?id=150564202 2

Guys Ive a 1.5 month lab and he has picked up potty training within a week of arriving home. Just buy these pads and I have a bottle of puppy trainer. He does his business only in the bathroom where he can scent the potty trainer.

Braden, I had problems buying clicker. Till the time, I got it, I was using a metal strip which I had smashed with hammer, the hammered surface of the metal produced a loud and quick sound which is all this clicker training requires. This was working all fine. But after a month or so, my friend , an owner of a popular pet shop in Karol Bagh imported it from the UK. The order was given to an agency in Mumbai which then imported it from the UK. It took not more than a week. If you live in Delhi I can buy one for you as they do have some available. I can also give you their address so that you can pick it on your own. I'm in facebook: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=h ome#!/profile.php?id=150564202 2

Kartik, your puppy will show his clear intention to pee or pop if you moniter him closely. They'll walk in circle and sniff the ground. That's the time when they're about to do. When I was training my puppy, I used to take him to the place every hour and when he has peed there I'd press the clicker and give him his treat. The puppy responded so well to it that I used to say potty, he'd do the potty and ask for his treat!
Usually, puppies should be fed 4 times a day, I feed him Canobites in morning and evening, and curd in afternoon and at night.
