3 Classic tricks for your dog.

We will be going over 3 classic but powerful tricks you can teach your pup so he can be ready for daycare! Make sure to practice 3x per day for 15min.

The Classic Sit

To master this basic command, start by holding out a treat and moving it up and down through the air so that your dog focuses on the treat and follows the movements. Now, keep moving your hand up. This will force your dog’s head to move upwards to follow the treat, causing her bottom to lower to the ground for an improved stance. Whenever her rump is seated, make sure to say “Sit” and then give her the treat.

The Power of “Come”

Whether you’re at the dog park or the front door was left open while bringing in groceries, without a leash your energetic pup is looking to roam and sniff! Mastering the “come” command is useful for breaking those run-away habits or getting your dog by your side if a dangerous situation arises. Start by keeping your dog on a leash and stooping down to her level while holding the leash. Gently tell her to “come” while pulling the leash towards you. Once she is by your side, give praise and a treat. Continue to do this over and over, then remove the leash and practice the same steps.

The Advanced “Stay”

Getting your dog to sit and stay is a more complex command, but with a bit of patience and consistency, she’ll get it down in no time. First, you’ll want to make sure that the sit command has already been mastered. Start by asking her to sit, then reach out your hand in a stop gesture while simultaneously telling your pup to “stay”.Take a few steps back. If she stays, give a treat and praise. Naturally, it will take a few tries for her to understand.
