Now that the dog knows what the clicker means then potential adopters should know, too. Make clickers a part of getting acquainted. Show adopters how to hold the clicker, click it, and give a treat. Clicker dogs quickly focus on a person with a clicker. Two people can take turns calling the dog, clicking it, and treating, so the dog goes back and forth between them. Families love to see a clicker dog's friendly eye contact and wagging tail. And anyone can click, including kids.
Send the dog home with clickers, instructions and treats. Adopters don't need to become trainers; just a few clicks and treats, now and then, will help the dog enormously in making the transition to the new environment. And if the dog knows a clicker trick or two (a bow or high-five perhaps), they'll have fun showing off their extra-smart new dog to family and friends.
