Fun tricks to teach your dog to do tricks and be obedient

By Tania Hockley

The first trick to teach your dog is to learn to walk politely on the leash. It may sound simple, but it is not easy for some dogs. They may be very excited, they may be aggressive, they may be frightened or they may not even know what they are doing.

It's not necessary to train your dog to behave perfectly, especially if he or she is not showing any obvious signs of aggression. However, if your dog is not acting politely on the leash, it can lead to further problems in the future. It could make you frustrated, it can make other people irritated and it can be hard work for you.

If you know you can manage this part of training, then you can make your life a lot easier by having your dog's training go much faster.

If you feel that your dog is behaving badly, there are things you can do to help him or her to behave properly and it can be possible to correct bad habits while you are training.

If you get to know your dog's character, you may notice that your dog's temperament is very different to that of other people. Your dog may have lots of different characteristics, but he or she is probably most likely to be good-natured, loyal, happy and eager to learn.

As a result, if you understand your dog's temperament, you will be able to know when to approach him or her or when to back off. You will know when you are going too far and you will be able to correct any undesirable behaviour.

If your dog is nervous or fearful, he or she may bark or yelp, even if you have approached them in a relaxed manner. If your dog is fearful, it is probably best to start off by teaching him or her a simple 'Sit' command, so that your dog can feel a little bit more secure before you approach him or her on a walk. You can start off by putting the leash on your dog and then asking him or her to sit.

If your dog does this, then you will know that your dog is willing to accept your guidance. You can then gradually start to work on more complex commands that can be taught at the same time as you are walking together. If you teach your dog to sit on the leash, this will teach him or her that you are there for a reason and that you mean no harm. It will give your dog some confidence before you start to introduce the 'Heel' command.

It can be very rewarding for both you and your dog to learn these commands together and it will give you an enjoyable time of training as you can go on a walk together and work on some commands at the same time.

Training your dog to heel

The next trick to teach your dog is to teach him or her to 'Heel'. Teaching your dog to heel on the leash will enable you to train your dog in a much quicker way and this will give you the opportunity to get to know your dog better.

If you are teaching your dog to 'Heel', it is best to start off in a quiet area, so that you don't distract your dog by having the noise of your own voice. When you are teaching your dog to 'Heel', you need to be very patient. It is important that you use lots of praise when you are working on a new command with your dog. It is also important to praise your dog every time that he or she follows your commands. This will teach your dog that it is a good idea to listen to you and to work on the commands that you are teaching him or her.

If your dog is very well behaved and obedient, he or she will already know the command, so there is no point in teaching it to them. However, if your dog is not very good at heel-walking, it can be very helpful to start off teaching your dog to 'Heel'.

It can be important to be gentle with your dog when he or she is learning to 'Heel'. You must not push your dog too hard. As your dog gets used to the command, he or she will start to move away from you a little bit, so it is a good idea to leave a little bit of space between you. Your dog should not be too frightened or he or she will not learn the command well.

If you are teaching your dog to 'Heel', it is best to use a flat leash rather than a retractable leash. This will make it easier for your dog to follow your commands. It is important that you do not pull your dog's ears back, this will only make your dog more frightened and will make your training a lot more difficult. If you do use a retractable leash, you will have to be very careful to prevent your dog from pulling it away from you, as your dog may start pulling on the leash, in an attempt to get it back.

Your dog may take a little time to get used to walking on a leash, so it is important that you do not put too much pressure on your dog to learn the command. The leash will only be holding your dog's attention for so long and if you pull your dog too hard on the leash, you will only be frustrating your dog. As your dog learns the command, you can gradually start to shorten the length of the leash, until your dog will be walking nicely beside you.

You can also train your dog to 'Heel' by using some treats. When you start to give your dog some treats, your dog may not know that you are giving him or her a treat as your dog may be very focused on the command. This will be good for teaching your dog the command, as your dog will know that when you give him or her a treat, you are not doing something that you do not want him or her to do. If you have trained your dog to 'Sit', your dog will know that when you give him or her a treat, it is not the time to be running off, so your dog will learn to work on the command even if he or she is running around in a playful manner.
