I have been working and training dogs for almost 10 years. I teach puppy classes and have taught obedience classes and service dog classes. I am also an AKC CGC Evaluator. I am currently working on earning my 2 dogs (one blind) their first trick dog title (Novice) and plan to advance to at least Expert level (hopefully Champion). I love working with dogs and watching them learn new things and helping owners understand how to communicate with their dogs and have fun too.
10 Fun, Impressive Tricks You Can Teach Any Dog - Dogtime
Remember, anything you do with your dog is better than nothing! Even if you’re not a star trick trainer, your dog will love you for trying. Always keep training sessions short and fun. We want our dogs excited to come back for more!
Tricks are an enjoyable and gratifying aspect of training
is a dog trick which involves having your dog put his chest to the ground while keeping his rear end up in the air. It may sound like a difficult dog trick to train a dog to do, but the truth is that bowing is a natural behavior for dogs.
Similarly, dog tricks are no different from basic obedience commands
Its fortunate that there are many positive training options for our dogs today! Increasingly, people are choosing to extend their dogs education past classes in good manners, and I strongly advocate following up those basic classes with a tricks class! Learning even just a few basic tricks is fun for you, your dog, and your potential audience! And while the benefits to you and your dog are many, I will describe my top five.There are an almost endless list of benefits to teaching your dog a few (or more!) new tricks. Perhaps most importantly, teaching any behavior using a gentle, motivation based approach is a wonderful way to form a closer, more communicative bond with your dog. And an amazing side benefit is the more you teach your dog the quicker they learn because your teaching skills improve as does your dog’s ability to understand the training game and learn most efficiently.
