3 Top Tricks to Teach Your Dog
Updated: Jan 9, 2022
Train your puppy first & impress people with a good dog
#1. Shake a paw! Instead, train your dog to sit for three minutes. This is a tricky thing to teach, but none the less you will impress many, many people. First thing to do is attach a leash to a martingale collar. Flat collars often slip off the dog, harnesses are useless and halti’s are no good.
Stand in one spot, pull the dog towards you, never move towards the dog when placing in a sit.
Pull up on the leash, do not pull up and down and jerk the leash. One consistent movement with the leash.
Once the bum touches the ground start timing. Begin with 10 seconds, then 20, 15, 30, 20, 45, 10, 60 all the way up to 3 minutes (180 seconds). Once you have success indoors move out to the front steps, then to the sidewalk, keep placing your dog into a sit. You can add a snap of the fingers to teach your dog to sit. Praise your dog with pats. Never praise with food. Do not use treats.
