12 Easy Tricks to Teach Your Dog

12 Easy Tricks to Teach Your Dog with Pro Tips

  1. Sit:

    • Teach your dog the foundational "sit" command, a prerequisite for many other tricks. Use treats and gentle guidance to reinforce this basic but essential skill.
  2. Stay:

    • Enhance impulse control and safety with the "stay" command. Short training sessions, a firm vocal cue, and positive reinforcement create a trusting relationship.
  3. Shake Paws:

    • Build on the sit command for a charming handshake. Reward your dog when they paw at your hand, refining the trick over time to distinguish it from a simple pawing gesture.
  4. Play Dead:

    • Combine "lie down" and "stay" to teach your dog to play dead. Using treats and verbal cues, guide them to roll over and reward them for lying on their side.
  5. Roll Over:

    • Progress from sit to lie down, then teach your dog to roll over. Use a treat to lure them into a roll, gradually refining the action until they complete the trick.
  6. Speak:

    • Encourage barking for the "speak" command if your dog already knows the "quiet" cue. Reward single barks to avoid reinforcing excessive barking.
  7. Kiss:

    • Lure your dog to give a gentle lick for the "kiss" command. Use treats and verbal cues to associate the action with the command.
  8. Spin:

    • Guide your dog in a circle with a treat, introducing commands like "spin" or "twirl." Reward each successful spin and vary the command for clockwise and counterclockwise spins
  9. Beg: 

    • Entice your dog to stand on hind legs with a treat for the "beg" command. Gradually raise the treat, encouraging them to maintain the position for a reward.
  10. Bow:

    • Utilize your dog's natural inclination to bow. Use a treat to guide them into a bowing position, rewarding them when they achieve the desired stance.
  11. Wave:

    • Extend the "shake paws" trick into a wave by gradually raising your closed hand. Reward your dog for waving their paw in the air.
  12. Back Up:

    • Teach your dog to move backward with the "back up" command. Use body language and a verbal cue to guide them away from you.
