|Tyler and Dolly Taking a break after training!|
1) They'll follow your outstretched hand (as long as it has a treat in it).
2) You can put two chairs out side by side- about 4 feet apart
3) Use your left arm to go around the chair in the right (with left foot extended to the chair so it blocks the dogs way and forces them to go around in clockwise motion).
4) Then, step back as your dog comes around and step to the chair on your left with your right arm and right foot extended to the chair, and do a sweeping motion saying "Go around."
nights when it's too cold to walk your dog for an extended time.
You'll be surprised how quickly they'll learn and it gives them a sense of accomplishment instead of just lying around. Here's a video Tom took of me training Tyler the Dachshund and Dolly the Weimaraner in our den after dinner on the bitter cold night this past Sunday. (Franklin prefers to watch and supervise, and be rewarded with treats).
