YOUR DOG TRICKS
dogs tricks can be great fun for you and your dog. When you think about it
most obedience exercises are only a set of Tricks. When you are
doing a lot of formal obedience work with your dog sometimes tricks can break
up the training session and any type of work with your dog is building a bond
between you both.
teaching sessions short and above all have fun!!!
Started . . . Beginning training sessions should be in a safe area with
no distractions. After you and your dog have finished this "course"
and he has the commands down pat every time, try moving the sessions to a
park so he will eventually learn to follow commands despite any distractions.
only concentrate on one new command per week. Once you start your dog's training,
you will need to practice the new command for at least fifteen minutes every
day. After adding a second command, practice both every day. And so on. It
won't take long for your dog to forget these new things if you don't keep
practicing. Not all dogs learn at the same pace, so don't feel discouraged
if you need to practice each command for two weeks instead of one.
wants to make you happy, and he will quickly do what you want once he knows
what it is you want him to do. The way for him to know it is what you want
is to praise him every time he does it - even if you had to put his body in
the right position or he did the right thing on accident. In the beginning,
your praise should sound hapy and excited and include lots of nice petting.
commands you give should be said in a commanding voice - just slightly louder
than normal, very authoritative and stern, and in a slightly deeper tone than
normal. "Sit!" means sit down right where you are and do it immediately.
Saying "sit?" means please sit - that is, if you feel like it -
okay, when you get around to it - maybe?
say come in your most authoritative voice and he runs through the front yard
of three neighbors before coming to you, do not say no, yell at him, or sound
mean. He came, so praise him. The last action is the only one he will relate
to your praise or lack of it - the only one that he will think made you happy
must be enforced. Dog training is not for a lazy person. In the beginning,
each command will be given at the same time that you literally put his body
into the position that you want. When you think he knows the command, try
it with the verbal command alone - once. If you have to give the command a
second time, it should be done at the same time that you physically put him
into position. Otherwise, he will think that he can either obey or not, or
that he can take his own sweet time to obey.
that you have been allowing a dog to do in the past that you want to change
now will take longer than if you start with a new puppy that does not yet
have any bad habits. A six-week old puppy can learn to sit, come, stay, get
off, and heel in a matter of days. Stay takes longer with the really young
ones because they are usually only not moving when they are sleeping or chewing
on your good slippers. But, a dog of any age can and will learn all of these
things if you are persistent, you sound authoritative when you give the commands,
and you praise him as soon as he does it right.

Sit and Stay . . . Teaching your dog a few fun tricks will entertain the
both of you and perhaps amuse friends as well. Some easy fun tricks include
fetching the paper, jumping through a hoop, and speaking. Before trying these
tricks do make sure your pooch has down the basics such as sitting, staying,
lying down and perhaps shaking hands before attempting anything
more ambitious. Also decide on what you will try for motivation. You can use
good old dog biscuits or simply enthusiastic praise.
