Ready to enter your pooch in a dog contest, or at least make him the star of your block? Andrea Arden, certified dog trainer for Animal Planets Underdog to Wonderdog, shares three tricks that will wow dog owners and fellow pups alike.
Take a Spin
Arden taught readers of our June 1, 2010, issue how to get their dogs to spin. Here are the tips, in case you missed them:
1. Hold a tiny treat at your dogs nose, then move your hand slowly toward his tail. Say yes and give the treat when he begins to move his head away from you.
2. Gradually increase the turn by holding the food in your hand farther away. When your dog confidently follows your hand through a full spin, say spin right before you move your hand to lure so hell start to connect with the behavior.
3. Once hes mastered that, use a smaller hand circle as a cue, so hell learn to spin when you make that gesture and say the command.
Crawl to Your Owner
Begin on a smooth surface so your dog feels comfortable moving along the floor, suggests Arden. Help your pup make his crawling debut with these steps:
1. Start by teaching your dog to lie down. Hold a treat just in front of your dogs nose when he is lying down and move it slightly forward. Reinforce any movement forward by saying yes and giving a little treat. If he tries to stand up, dont say anything. Simply start again.
2. When you are confident that your dog understands to follow your hand by staying low to the ground and inching forward, add the cue "crawl" just before you begin to move your hand.
3. Move the treat progressively farther away from your dog, but remember to be patient. Even if your dog is very fit, he will need to gradually build up to being able to crawl for more than a few inches.
Take a Bow
This is a great finale to a routine of tricks, says Arden. Follow these tipsand then get ready to applaud your dog.
1. Most dogs will stretch when they wake up or go into a bow as a way to solicit play. In either case, you can capture the behavior by simply marking the moment she bows. Say "yes" and give a treat. This way you are clearly telling your dog that what happened at the exact moment she heard the marker sound is what results in the reward.
2. You can also lure this behavior by holding a treat at your dog's nose when she is standing. Lower your hand to the ground and be prepared to mark the moment her front end goes down so she doesn't slide her whole body to the ground and lie down. If she does, just try again and be careful to mark before her rear end starts to go down.
3. Once you can reliably get the bow either because your dog is freely offering it or because you are luring, add the cue word or phrase such as take a bow or bravo right before she goes into a bow so she starts to connect the verbal cue with the behavior.
