Sharing buttons:

today I'm gonna show you how to teach

you oh my gosh something really cool

quick thumbs up if you think Ricky jr.

has the cutest ears ever we borrowed him

from the Jefferson Parish animal shelter

here in New Orleans he was picked up as

a stray a few weeks ago and he's just

been adopted so we're gonna give him a

little bit of training to get him off to

a great start if your news subscribe to

your dog quickly and with modern methods

your dog pick up a copy of my book dog

training revolution wherever you see

this play button there's a corresponding

video on my youtube channel today we're

gonna be using a clicker to teach Ricky

jr. to shake hands or give paw I find

that using a clicker can really deliver

fast results especially if you're a

beginner this sound to Ricky jr. is

gonna mean good dog a delicious treat is

on its way now this whole concept just

takes a second to teach your dog and

guess what the doggone good clicker

it's get the deluxe puppy package and

you'll have everything you need to

become an expert in clicker training and

you'll look good doing it too or check

out the description for a link and the

special coupon code you can't bite me

when you bite me for if you successfully

teach your dog how to give paw or how to

shake you're not just teaching a cool

fun trick but you're really broadening

your communication with them and that's

why we do things like this the benefit

of clicker training is that it allows

you to have precision timing so that the

moment your dog is even a little bit on

the right track

you can get traction and bring out the

behavior you want more quickly from the

inside out so the first thing I want to

do is teach Ricky jr. what this click

actually means so every time I click I'm

just going to follow it up with a reward

you can see how after doing this a few

times the dog is going to start to make

the connection that hey when I hear that

sound I get an amazing awesome treat

use really small really good tasting

treats too that's important you don't

want your dog to fill up because you

want the option to click them and give

them lots of rewards over a period of

time now you could use really good soft

dog treats for this or you could use

something like real meat or real chicken

I'm gonna click that you can see in his

eyes look at that he's really making the

connection and looking at my other hand

where the treats are coming from he is a

bright boy now my job is to get Ricky

jr. to move his paw any way that I can

now an important note here simply

grabbing there Paul like this isn't

gonna do much there are several ways you

can go about doing this the first thing

you could try to do is maybe tickle

their paws yes right there he doesn't

barely move this paws if you can get

really good at identifying those tiny

moments of progress you're gonna do

really well so Ricky jr. is really

catching on quick let's go over another

way that you can encourage your dog to

give their paws he does know a sit

really good I'm gonna click him and

reward him because he did something I'd

like and now I'm gonna kind of lure him

off the ground and see if he lifts

either of those paws

yes good job and so we're just gonna

acknowledge look at that right there if

you might notice I'm not saying shake or

give paw we're gonna do that when the

behavior becomes a little bit more

reliable in a second if you have a young

puppy especially or really inquisitive

dog sometimes dogs will use their paws

to interact with the world and you might

find that just simply showing them a

treat like this and waiting a minute

they may actually start pawing at the

treat at which time you can click it

even if it's an accident on their part

it's great to still acknowledge that

they're doing something you like so I'm

letting them see the treat and we're

just seeing if he's gonna move those

paws at all

whoa that's what I'm talking about yes

good nice work

I love the magnetic clip on this treat

pouch too you can really start to see

how he's comprehending that oh if I do

this the clicker goes off and I get paid

and he's really into it so therefore

he's more likely to repeat the behavior

only when you're pretty confident that

your dog is going to offer the behavior

you want do you then begin to introduce

the word that you're trying to teach

them so it goes like this good shake

nice work I mean you can teach this in

minutes with many dogs now let's see if

we can get him to do it when we just ask

and give him the treat afterwards shake


rather than saying shake shake shake you

could see it in his eyes he was thinking

about it and it's important to kind of

let your dog think it through in those

cases rather than muddying up your

communication and shake o other hand you

fancy and the dextrous dog he's

demonstrating why shelter dogs can be

some of the best dogs in the world found

as a stray and look how quickly he's

learning a new trick just a few minutes

that's all it takes this is only the

beginning though once you teach your dog

shake there's a million things you can

teach your dog you guys push the dog
