Has anyone of you ever trained a goat using operant conditioning, more popularly known as clicker training?

The reason I ask... I just got a donkey I hope will be my new goat guard, and of course, I am training her with a clicker. Today is day 3, and she has now learned completely what the clicker means, follows me everywhere with no halter, stops on command, and is even starting to lift her feet by herself on command. I've always used clickers with my horses, and sure enough donkeys respond well too.

So it got me thinking - has anyone ever used clicker training for a goat? You could teach them all sorts of cute things with a clicker. If anyone has done it, I'd love to hear about it ... and even better, if you have a video or pic of your goat performing, I'd love to see it!

I've done some clicker training, though never with my goats. I have considered it and think it would work really well!
