Ivan Pavlov famously worked to condition dogs’ behaviors by ringing a bell whenever he fed his canine subjects, creating a mental link between the food and the sound. Soon, the dogs began to salivate anytime they heard the bell, regardless of whether food was offered. The owner of Hanna's Naughty Dog Training trains pooches with her own spin on the Russian scientist’s technique: she ticks a clicker and presents a treat whenever a dog successfully follows a command. After a few sessions, the treats aren’t even necessary—the dogs will respond to the sound of the clicker alone, and owners can continue training them at home with their own clickers. Training sessions are personalized to each dog and can be geared to tackle common issues such as excessive barking, chewing, and potty training.
