Double the Fun!
Make trick time twice as much fun and challenging by combing two tricks together. We call it chaining when you combine two behaviors together like sit up and wave. Teach each behavior separately and practice until your pup is good at both tricks. First have your dog sit up then ask for a wave. She may look at you a little confused and you can help her stay sitting up while she waves her paw. With more repetitions she will get the idea that you are delighted with her cleverness! Try Twist and Shout ( spinning and barking), Passing out after too much partying (spin then play dead), or Stop Drop and Roll to practice fire safety. Have Fun!!
