Dogs are our loyal companions and nothing makes us happier than when we can see them happy.

Our dogs bring out the best in us as humans and we can do the same for them in return.

There are so many things that we can teach our dogs and often times they end up surprising us with their intelligence.

 

Have you ever wondered if you could teach an old dog new tricks?

It’s actually possible! Dogs are known to be one of the most intelligent animals on the planet.

However, they are also known to respond well to positive training, which is very important when training dogs.

This blog will discuss the different tricks that your dog can potentially learn and will also provide you with some important tips on how to go about teaching your dog a new trick.

 

Speak

If your dog is barking or whining, you can use the Speak command to get his or her attention and stop the behavior. Additionally, the Speak command can be used as a training tool.

For example, if you are teaching your dog to sit, you can use the Speak command to get your dog’s attention and then give the Sit command. This can help your dog learn the commands more quickly.

Finally, the Speak command can be used as a party trick! It’s always impressive to see a dog that can Speak on command.

So if you’re looking for a fun and useful command to teach your dog, the Speak command is a great choice.

To teach your dog the speak command, start by saying the word “speak” in a positive, encouraging tone.

Then, offer your dog a treat. Repeat this process several times until your dog begins to associate the word “speak” with getting a treat.

Once your dog understands the command, you can begin to use it in different situations.

For example, if your dog barks to ask to go outside, say “speak” and then take him outside. If your dog barks for attention, say “speak” and then give him some attention.

With patience and consistency, your dog will learn to speak on command.

 

Shake Paws

This command is a great way to show your dog affection and bond with them. It is also a great way to get your dog’s attention.

This command can be used in many different situations, such as when you are leaving the house or when you are getting ready for a walk.

This command is also a great way to show your dog that you are the leader of the pack. To teach your dog the Shake Paws command, start by having your dog sit in front of you.

Then, hold out your hand and say the command “Shake Paws.”

As your dog lifts its paw to shake your hand, give it a treat.

Repeat this process until your dog is consistently shaking your hand when you say the command.

Once your dog has mastered the Shake Paws command, you can add a cue word, such as “Please,” before the command.

 

Give Kiss

It can be a great way to show your affection for your furry friend.

It can also be used as a calming signal, to help your dog feel more comfortable in stressful situations. Plus, it’s just plain cute!

It can be used to help train your dog to be more gentle with his or her mouth.

This can be especially useful if you have a puppy who is prone to nipping.

By teaching your dog that he or she needs to be gentle in order to get a kiss, you can help prevent unwanted biting behavior.

So, if you’re looking for a way to show your love for your dog, and help him or her learns to be more gentle, the Give Kiss command is a great option.

If you want your dog to give you a kiss on command, you’ll need to start with basic obedience training and then move on to more specific commands.

When your dog goes to lick your face, give him the treat and praise him enthusiastically.

 

Spin

This command can be used as a fun party trick to show off your dog’s tricks, or it can be used as a useful behavior in obedience training.

The Spin Command can also be used to help your dog exercise and burn off excess energy.

When teaching the Spin Command, be sure to use positive reinforcement such as treats or praise to encourage your dog to perform the behavior.

With patience and practice, your dog will be spinning in no time.

If you want your dog to be able to perform the Spin command, there are a few things you’ll need to do.

First, you’ll need to teach your dogs the basic commands of sit, stay, and come.

Once your dog has a good understanding of these commands, you can begin teaching the Spin command.

To do this, you’ll need some treats that your dog loves. Stand in front of your dog and hold a treat in your hand.

Say the command “Spin” and then move the treat in a circle around your dog’s head.

As your dog follows the treat with his eyes, he should start to turn in a circle.

Once he’s turned a full circle, give him the treat and praise him. Practice this a few times a day until your dog gets the hang of it.

 

Beg

One of the great benefits of teaching your dog the Beg command is that it can be a great way to get your dog’s attention.

Additionally, the Beg command can be a great way to get your dog to calm down if he is getting excited or worked up.

Simply telling your dog to “Beg” can often help to settle him down and get him back to a more relaxed state.

Finally, the Beg command can be a great way to show off your dog’s tricks and obedience skills to others.

If you are at a dog park or dog show, having your dog perform the Beg command can be a great way to impress others and show off your dog’s training.

Second, be consistent in your commands – using the same word or phrase each time you ask your dog to beg.

Third, be patient with your dog, and don’t get frustrated if they don’t catch on immediately – remember that they are just trying to please you and eventually they will get it.

Finally, have fun with it! Dogs love to learn new tricks and commands, so make sure you make the learning process enjoyable for both of you.

Fetch

Fetch is a great way to keep your dog active and entertained. It also helps to build their coordination and stamina.

And, of course, it’s a lot of fun for both you and your dog!

To teach your dog to fetch, start by showing them a toy or ball that you’re going to throw.

Then, say “fetch” and throw the toy a short distance. Encourage your dog to go after it and bring it back to you.

Praise them enthusiastically when they do. If they don’t fetch the toy, just go and get it yourself. Then try again.

 

Roll Over

There are many benefits to teaching your dog to roll over. For one, it’s a great way to bond with your furry friend.

It’s also a great way to get them some exercise, and it’s a trick that’s sure to impress your friends and family.

To teach your dog to roll over, start by getting them into a lying-down position.

Then, hold a treat close to their nose and slowly move it over their head to the ground on the other side.

As they follow the treat with their nose, they should start to roll over. Once they’re all the way over, give them the treat and lots of praise.

 

Play Dead

It can be a useful tool in emergency situations, such as if your dog is ever in danger and you need to quickly get them to safety.

So how do you teach your dog to “play dead”? The first step is to get them into a lying-down position.

Once they are lying down, you will need to give them the command, which can be simply “play dead” or something more creative like “Bang, bang! You’re dead!”

You will then need to provide a treat or some other form of positive reinforcement.

With patience and practice, your dog will eventually learn the command and be able to perform it on cue.

 

Take a Bow

There are a few different ways to teach your dog to take a bow. One way is to start with them in a sitting position.

Then, gently pull their front paws forward until they are in a bowed position. Another way is to start with them in a standing position.

Then, simply push their hind end down into a bowed position. Whichever way you choose to teach your dog to take a bow. Be sure to give them lots of praise and treats when they do it successfully.

 

Pick up Toys

There are many benefits to teaching your dog to pick up their toys. Not only will it help to keep your home clean and tidy.

But it will also give your dog a sense of responsibility and help to build their self-esteem.

One of the best ways to teach your dog to pick up their toys is to start with a simple command such as “pick up” or “get your toy”.

Once your dog has mastered this, you can then add in a cue such as pointing to the toy or using a hand gesture.

To reinforce the behavior, you can give your dog a treat every time they successfully pick up their toy.

You can also praise them verbally and give them lots of cuddles and scratches.

 

It may be a cliché but it can be true, dogs will surprise you with their capabilities and willingness to learn.

Have you ever seen your dog jump up on the couch or counter, or try to pull the vet’s pants off?

These behaviors are not normal for dogs, just like a dog opening a door isn’t normal for humans.

Now you can have a dog who will open a door for you, or jump up on the couch with your permission.

Dogs are very smart and they love their people. They will do almost anything to please you.

If you reward your dog with treats, she will soon learn to perform tricks to get more treats.

The more tricks you train your dog to do, the more fun you will have. It is a win-win situation!
