What we mean here is that youshould look at what tricks your dog naturally does, or look for a dog trick in the making, likenaturally putting a paw on your knee or rolling over etc.If you choose a dog trick that naturally occurs, half your work is already done. Your dog willprobably be eager to please as most dogs are and should therefore respond well to rewards. Youcan build on this to reinforce your dogs natural ability rather than starting an entirely new dog trick.Which Dog Trick Do You Choose?Observe your dog and watch out for a potential dog trick. This may be something as simple ascrawling along on its belly to, catching a Frisbee or a ball. As soon as your dog performs one ofits natural tricks, associate it with a hand gesture or verbal command and then reward your dogwith its favorite treat. It wont be long before your dog learns the procedure.Eventually over time, you will be able to cut back on the rewards until your dog will perform thedog trick with just the hand gesture or verbal command such as fetch or go get. Now that thenew trick is firmly lodged in your dogs head, you will be able to build on it.For example, if you have taught your dog to catch a Frisbee, how about increasing the distancethat he will catch it from, or throw two Frisbees one after the other. Get your dog to catch one,drop it and then run for the other!Popular Dog TricksSome of the most popular dog tricks are sit and come etc. These are pretty simple to teach. Toteach your dog to sit, with your dog standing firmly press on its hind quarters directly above itsback legs whilst at the same time saying the word Sit quite assertively but NOT shouting. Mostdogs will naturally sit. At this point, heap lots of praise on your dog and then give them a treat.After several repetitions of this, your dog will soon learn what Sit means. Do not try this on olderdogs that may have arthritis in their hind legs or hips.If your dog does not sit when told, NEVER scold it. Just ignore it and try again another time.Otherwise your dog will associate Sit with being scolded. If your dog persistently fails to sit, tryanother trick.Each dog has different talents.
  2. 2. To teach your dog to come is simple. When your dog is at a distance, say loudly but not shoutingCome here or Come. This will usually get your dogs attention. Repeat the statement Come on,Come here. Most untrained dogs at this point will probably look away and carry on with whateverit was doing.At this point walk up to your dog but keep within around 5 feet away. Say Come here. Your dogwill probably now come to you. When he does, its time for a lot of praise and a treat. Repeat thisbut increase the distance that your dog has to walk towards you more each time. Eventually, yourdog will instinctively come to you whenever it hears you shout Come here, from any distance.Again, if your dog fails to come to you, DO NOT scold it. I once got asked "Why wont my dogcome to me?" On further investigation I found out that every time the dog ran away and then failedto come back, the owners would scold the dog when they got hold of it again. WRONG! The dogstarted to associate the command Come here with a scolding. Totally the opposite. No wonderthe dog failed to come to command.Another dog trick you can try is Paw. This involves saying Paw then gently lifting the dogs pawwith your hand followed by lots of praisetreats. After a while saying Paw will cause your dog toraise its paw. You can extend this to two paws where your dog Sits pretty on its haunches.Another trick is Speak. This usually works best with a naturally vocal dog. Every time your doghowls or makes a funny noise, praise the dog whilst saying the command Speak. Eventually yourdog will speak on command.Teaching your dog a new dog trick should be a fun experience for both of you, and will give youlots of quality time together.
