Here’s our trick!
I admit – Wynston is not much of a trick dog. He prefers to lounge around or be active outdoors. However, he does have one trick that I call the ultimate manipulation. All of his Facebook followers love it and he is irresistibly cute. I call it “the crouch,” while others may call it “sit pretty.” Make sure you use lots of treats for positive reinforcement!
- Start your dog in a sitting position, and make sure you have lots of treats handy!
- Take a treat and slowly move it toward your dog’s nose, then move your hand upward (with the treat still in your hand), almost like you are pushing your dog back. This will cause them to lean back and sit in a crouching position.
- If your dog can stand on it’s hind legs, you can also start that way. Then you would slowly move the treat and your hand downward at the dog’s nose, so he goes to a crouch position from a stand.
- If your dog is sitting in the correct position, keep feeding him treats!!! The positive reinforcement will make it fun and rewarding for your dog to learn the trick and repeat it.
Time to enter the giveaway! And remember to enter the other giveaways as well!
Each entry you make in the giveaway goes toward winning the grand prize! Good luck!
