Your Dog Tricks
Article by Ani
|If you have the time, patience and
a dog, there is no limit of the tricks you can teach
old Rover! What wise guy said you can't teach an
old dog new tricks? Totally wrong! The only problem
is that people don't take the time to teach that
old dog some new tricks!
Patience!!! Only work with your dog for five minutes
at a time! If your dog totally does not get it,
stop for the day and review the directions. Always
end the session on a cheerful note even if your
dog made no improvement!!! Use yummy treats to keep
your dog from getting bored! Have a play session
after you train your dog. This will keep old Rover
Speak! This is a cool trick because
you can't really force your dog to do this!
I have also included some tips for those problem
Calm your Rover down and have him focus!
The amazing counting dog trick!\
- Hide! Awww, so cute. Rover hides his
eyes underneath a paw!
- Shake! At your command, Rover shakes
his head, as if in disagreement!
- Give Your Paw! This is a very easy
to teach trick that later can be used as a basis
to teach WAVE.
- Wave! You can teach your Rover to WAVE
after you teach your Rover to GIVE YOU PAW.
- Sit High! Nothing is cuter than a dog
sitting up on its hind end. This trick can later
be used with a cookie on the nose!

teach. Now you can show your guests what good
manners your Rover has!

trick! Try it! Your dog might like it. Who knows,
soon your dog will be the most popular dog on
the whole block with all the children!
- Roll Over! ROLL OVER is an old goody
which every Rover should know!
- Crawl! Ever wanted to teach your dog
how to CRAWL? On command Rover will hit the
ground and CRAWL to you. It can be used to make
a very impressive trick if combined with LIMP
and PLAY DEAD. Check below for that trick.
- Limp! This trick can be very useful
and cute at times! If you use it to impress
a friend, or to get out of a tricky situation
(You forgot to ..... because your dog was limping)
it can be very useful!
- Play Dead! This is a nice trick. It
can be used as a part of BANG, or by itself.
- Bang! Rover limps. Bang! Rover crawls.
Bang! Rover plays dead. How can you ask for
a better trick? After teaching LIMP, CRAWL and
PLAY DEAD, try this one! It's a real crowd pleaser!!!
