How does the Trick or Treat Giveaway Hop work?
Fifteen amazing bloggers (ChiPets included) created posts dedicated to teaching you one of their favorite dog TRICKS.
The TREAT is, every one of of those blogs also has an option for you to enter an amazing giveaway with nearly $600 in prizes which is open from October 20th until October 30th, 2016.
Get it? Trick or Treat!
To make it easy, we’ve even taken the time to link to each blog’s trick for you at the end of this post.
Now, for our TRICK:
How to Teach Your Dog to Wave
Teaching your dog to wave is a fun and simple behavior that can open the door to teaching other tricks. Now, typically when you wave, you use your whole hand. BUT, since we’re small, we use just one finger to cue the wave. Simply follow the three easy steps below, and your dog will be waving in no time!
Step 1: Choose a delicious treat and a non-distracting environment. If you have more than one dog, it is best to train this trick (or any trick) with only one dog at a time.
Step 2: With a treat in your hand, reach toward your dog’s paw. When they lift up their paw, give them the treat. If they don’t lift up their paw, it’s okay to use your hand to gently lift their paw and give them the treat.
Step 3: When your dog starts anticipating the treat and starts lifting their paw before your hand gets close to their paw, you can now start adding your cue (again, we use the word “wave” and one finger, but you can use whatever feels comfortable to you). Repeat, repeat, repeat, and soon you will have the wave on cue!
Always remember to keep things positive when you are teaching a new trick!
