What can I teach my dog?
Using positive reinforcement you can teach your dog a number of things, such as peeing in the designated spots, not pulling the leash when you’re out on a walk, to come back to you if you need him to, and even several party tricks. These are all useful and entertaining things to teach your dog, and this learning process will deepen your emotional connection with each other.
When starting to teach your puppy, make sure you’re in a spacious and closed-off space, that you have a leash and a collar ready, and lots of stinky treats and love to give him. Patience, treats and love are a fool-proof way of teaching your dog.
The most popular (and easiest) commands to teach your dog are to sit, to come, to lay down, to stay, and to leave it. These commands will make your walks together easier and more fun for the both of you. If your dog catches a glimpse of a squirrel, you can make him not run after it by using the order “stay” or “leave it.”
Some funny and amusing commands to teach your dog are to kiss, to give you their paw or to shake your hand, to fetch, to roll over, to play dead, to spin, and to hug. The process of teaching them these are the same as for sit, and they’re an adorable trick to show your friends.
