HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO SHAKE PAW
This article will show you how to teach your dog to shake paw.
This is one of the easiest tricks you can teach your dog. All it takes is three simple steps, and we also demonstrate it in the video below as well.
- Show your dog a reward, and then take their paw into your hand and lift it up manually. Say “shake” A couple times first and then add ”good dog shake” once their paw is up. Then reward. Do this a few times until your dog is easily lifting up their paw in your hand.
- Then, just tap your dog’s paw with the word “shake” to indicate you want them to lift it. As soon as they lift it, excitedly tell them “good dog shake!” again and reward.
- Once they’ve been doing this well, then just say the word “shake” without tapping them. Once they lift their paw, immediately grab it with “good dog shake!” and reward again. If you don’t keep doing this fairly often over the first few days, you will probably have to go through all 3 steps each time. But, if you keep this up for a few days in a row, your dog should be a pro in no time.
