Hi ~

How do I train my pom to do a Hi 5 or Shake?

She knows how to sit, lay down and rollover, so when I get the training treats out-she automatically does those 3 tricks right in a row (she also knows those 3 tricks by hand gestures too-so I wonder if putting my hand out will confuse her???) so I can't get her to sit to learn to Hi 5 or Shake cuz she will automatically lay or if I bring my hand to her paw she sniffs it and checks to see if I have a treat for her.

Any help would be appreciated! smile

Thank you~

Chance learned to shake hands this way: I showed him a treat in my right palm. Then I closed my fist around the treat. If he hit my closed fist with his right paw...he got the treat. Repeat a zillion times, but not all at once. You can train Hi 5 the same way, just put your hand higher. Lots of luck. Let me know how this works for you

You could tickle just behind the paw pads until they lift the paw.

Hi Chance,

I finally tried this trick with Foxie. I think she's starting to get it...she will put her paw in the air but won't put her paw on my hand...we'll keep trying though...

She was kind of funny because she always tries to lay down, so each time I ask her to get up and sit and she doesn't always pay attention to what she's doing and she falls over. It was cute.

I always just grab their paw, saying paw/shake, and as soon as they relaxed (sometimes it would freak them a bit) I would give them the treat. Worked great for them! Good luck! way to go

ummm i don't remember i think i would gently coax Wolf's paw upward and give him a treat or i would show him my hand and keep the treat away and take his paw then give him the treat either way he's pretty good at it

Is today agility- day??

I just learned this trick! The way I did it was mommy held a treat above my head in her left hand so I wouldn't look at my feet. With her right hand, she touched the back of my paw on the back side (on the pad). When I lifted my paw, I got the treat. Repeat this way a bit and then add the command. Eventually, your paw should lift with only the command and no paw touch. I had this down in a few days. Good luck!

this was one of my first tricks. my owner held a treat in her right hand, and waited. Of corse I went straight for it, but my owner said "no" and took it away. I started to give up, but right before I did, I tried putting my paw in her hand to push it off. Then she said "good!" and we did it over and over. Now I do it without a treat!dog

With Annie, (this was one of her more recent tricks,) I just told her to lay down and caught her paw on the way and say shake. She learned it in ten minutes!
