Hi, I'm an eleven year old that loves dogs and every thing about them. Today I'm going to tell you how to teach your dog sit, lay down, and speak.
Where to Start:
Let's start with the easiest trick in the book, ”sit”. You will need treats and be ready to work. First start with showing the dog the treat, then put it up in the air with two fingers so your dog can see it, then see if he or she sits if they do then reward them with the treat and say sit while you do so then can get used to the word. If this isn't what happens then tap or push your dog's lower back till he/she sits. Do this till he/she understands, then you can start doing it when you feed them meals too.
When you want to teach your dog to lay down you need to make sure your dog knows sit.
To teach your dog to speak, you have to wait for your dog to bark then you have to say "good, speak" and give them a treat. This trick is hard to teach, so you to keep this going for a while. Every now and then say speak and see if your dog barks if they don't bark then you may have to keep the training going till they speak. Again this is a harder trick to teach but it depends on you and your dog.
Thank you. I hope you got some help!
