You can easily teach your dog several dog tricks with just a clicker. Actually, there are quite a few cool dog tricks you should teach your dog as soon as possible. Even dogs are fast learners, most especially than you are.
Dogs are a fast learner, most especially than you are, so you won’t need to put in too much effort to train them. A lot of dog tricks are simple enough for you and your dog to learn in just a few days. For example, you can teach your dog to ‘Heel’ or ‘Play Dead’, two simple dog training tricks that can be done in just a matter of days. In this article, I’ll show you how to train your dog to do these two easy tricks.
Dogs are fast learners. You may think that it’s cruel to teach them such simple tricks, but if you think about it, dogs have the same intelligence as you do. And if you think about it, dogs don’t really learn things overnight either. If they could, we wouldn’t have dogs walking around us on a leash instead of on dog walks!
So what does it take to teach dogs these two dog tricks? Well, there are no special dog training tricks that your dog can learn in an instant. It may take weeks before your dog knows how to heel and to play dead. As a dog owner, you should spend time training your dog to make him smart, not dumb. In this article, I’ll show you how to teach your dog to do these two simple tricks in just a matter of days.
The first dog trick’s lesson is called the clicker training. To teach this dog trick, you must use a clicking sound along with the verbal instruction “click” when you give the command. You can use a clicker or a voice command, whatever you prefer.
Another of the dog training tips I’d like to share with you today is to use treats. A treat is just a reward that can be given after successfully doing an action. Dogs love treats and will do almost anything you ask of them to do. So, let’s say that you want to teach your dog to sit down and lie down. Start by putting the dog in his crate and then saying “sit” while giving him the treat.
Once he lies down, give him the treat and praise him profusely. You can then move on to the next step. This time, you’ll need to click your dog by saying “step up” while giving him the treat. Then give him the praise and the treat for standing up.
For step two, you’ll have to be a little more patient and be sure that your dog doesn’t get nervous. You’ll want to click him before he finishes standing up. Start by using the same commands as in step one, but change out the word for the action. For instance, if you’re teaching your dog to sit, instead of saying “step up,” you could say, “stay” or “down.” Keep going with the command until he finishes.
The third and final tip is to give your dog treats during the training. But, don’t just hand out the treats as soon as the training is over. Start by sprinkling the treats throughout the training session. It helps if you do it before he does something that he shouldn’t. I’ve found that the more I train my dogs, the less they crave treats. If you do it right, your dog will love the attention that you’re giving him.
Step four is pretty easy. Once your dog has finished standing up and started the slow walk, you simply repeat the steps that you did in the previous steps. If the command tells you to sit, then sit down and wait. If you tell him to stand, then stand and wait.
The final step is simple: once you complete all three steps, give him a dog treat and praise him for standing up and sitting down. That’s all there is to it. The only other thing you need to focus on is getting your dog to touch the touch stick. I’ve found that my dogs learn faster this way.
