CREATING A TRICK ROUTINE

Having fun in training is really important for both you and your dog. The more enjoyment you create, the stronger your bond will become and the more reliable your training will be.

One activity which is great to do with your dog is build a short trick series or fun routine that incorporates some of the behaviours you’ve learnt so far.

Think about how you can combine different positions and transition between them. Try varying the speed of different actions and using props to mix things up a little.

The more creative you become, the more fun it will be and the novelty will keep your dog engaged and wanting to know what comes next.

You can even perform to music, tying in the different actions with the theme and tempo changes.

It’s also a great way to practice getting your dog to do multiple behaviours before you reward them. In time you can celebrate with a big reward at the end of the whole sequence!
