Tibby's Tricky Tuesday!

Hello Friends!
Welcome to MY Tricky Tuesday! Today we will be learning another pawsome trick I know!
This one is called...

WHICH HAND?
(Bad cellphone pic of a pic on good camera, long story)

Here's what your owner should do:

1. Remember to get some yummy treats!

2. Have your dog sit.

3. Put one treat in one hand then turn both hands over in fists and put them in front of your dog. He may sniff at your hands but don't open your hand to give him the treat until he puts his paw on the correct hand.

4. If your dog is only smelling you can lift his paw to your hand to show him what to do.

5. Once your dog is "tapping" your hand consistently you can start making the trick a little more of a challenge. Hold the treat up where your dog can see it. Then switch the treat from hand to hand a few times (slowly at first) before closing both and asking your dog "which hand?"

6. Before long your dog will be a pro and will impress all he meets with his skill and intelligence!

Always remember to keep training sessions short and fun for your dog. If he doesn't seem to be getting a trick, don't get frustrated, move on to one he knows well and revisit the new one later.
These are just the steps that worked for me and Owner Girl. If they don't seem to be working for you and your dog, don't worry! There are many resources and professionals that can help you!

Good Luck & Happy Training!

Why do humans torture us? Why can't they just give us a treat?
