Dog Tricks to Teach Your Dog
Before you begin training, it’s a good idea to test the dog’s physical limitations. To do this, first put on his leash, then pull the dog directly until he is looking at his haunches and see if he is able to hold the position for a few seconds.
Begin by having the dog sit prior to you while on his leash. Begin pulling your new puppy up with the leash while saying, “Sit up,” then drop the leash and stand back. When the dog stays up, praise him highly; otherwise, repeat the command until the trick is mastered. If necessary, you can also hold his paws up and say, “Stay!”
