Many people just can’t get their dog doing tricks as simple as "sit."
Are you having trouble training your dog a trick? Just follow this one simple tip and your dog should be doing tricks you train it in no time! This requires lots of patience and you cannot train your dog a trick in just one day, remember that.
So, as you may or may not know, dogs can’t just learn a trick by you forcing them or telling them to do it, they need a reward. The example we will use in this article is training your dog to dance, you can use this method to train your dog other tricks as well. I own a dog which I taught to dance in as short as two weeks and he is dancing like a pro. By dancing I mean he spins around when you say “dance.” The way I trained him this trick and many others such as “shake paw” was by twirling a treat above him until he did a twirl and saying “dance” in the process.
If you do this and say “dance” whenever you give your dog a treat he should get the hang of it within two weeks or more. Lets say you want to teach your dog how to roll over. Just roll him or her over saying “roll over” and then give him/her a treat afterwards. Do this whenever you give him/her a treat such as after a walk and once again, your dog should be rolling over within two or more weeks!
And remember, just follow this tip and your dog should be ‘tricking’ in no time! Remember not to give your dog too many treats because that could make him/her sick. Enjoy your dog training and have a great time!
