Teach your dog the "sit" command as the foundation for tricks like "shake" and "stay." Use leash control, a treat, and repetition for successful learning.
eaching the "stay" command fosters safety, impulse control, and trust between owner and pet. It prevents jumping, bolting, and instills peace of mind. Short sessions, firm cue, and rewards ensure your dog comprehends when to stay.
Teach your dog to shake hands: start with sit and stay commands. Use a treat, wait for pawing, reward, repeat. Transition to the handshake when consistent. The reward for gentle contact, not pawing.
Teaching "play dead" requires prior knowledge of "lie down" and "stay." Use known commands, lure with treat, guide roll over. Reward and praise when correct position achieved. Repeat for mastery.
After teaching your dog to sit and lie down, they can learn to roll over. When your dog is in the down position with its belly on the ground, paws in front, and head up, place a treat near their nose to guide their movement.
Move the treat so your dog has to roll onto their side and then over to keep the treat in sight. Once they complete the rollover, reward them. Be watchful as they try to snatch the treat before finishing the trick.
Once your dog understands "quiet," teach them to "speak." Excite them to bark, give cue, and reward them with a treat.
Affectionate dogs catch on quickly, but all can learn to kiss. Hold a treat near your face, encouraging a lick. Give verbal cues and treat them when they lick your cheek.
