I am the owner and creator of a UK, Essex based Dog Daycare Centre, Woofs n Wiggles Academy, in Colchester. It’s 3.5 years of age now and is getting stronger by the week, we are not a daycare with huge numbers and we aren’t fully booked. We’ve had days where we have reached our licensed capacity of 30 dogs with the space of 6 huge rooms, a large playground all covering 7,500sqft. 
A Brief History 
It was actually B. F. Skinner who first suggested using clickers with dogs back in the 1960s, however clicker training really grew in popularity in the 1990s. Seemingly overnight, clicker training grew from being used by a handful of dog trainers to millions of people across the globe, from professionals to the average pet dog owner. Though it began in domestic use as a method of teaching dogs, clicker training has been developed for an array of animals, from dogs, cats, horses, reptiles and even fish. Yes, fish! An training challenge was even born through the explosive popularity of clicker training; The Hot Dog Challenge! Can your dog carry a hot dog to you without eating it? With a clicker, anything is possible!
