Shake a Paw

It’s Training Tip Tuesday!

Does your dog know how to “shake” a paw?  This trick is relatively easy to teach.

When your dog is sitting, push down on his paw until his picks it up.  Reward with him a treat. Repeat about 4-5 times. After the fifth time push down on his paw until he lifts it again. At this point verbally say “shake” and hold his paw and “shake” for a few seconds , give him a treat.  Repeat again. He will quickly learn this new trick! Practice makes perfect, so be sure to practice this new trick each day until your dog is a pro at shaking hands!
