How can I teach my dog a trick?

Tricks and Routines

To get your pooch started learning tricks - have some treats handy and pick a time when he's calm and relaxed.

Start by extending your hand to your canine's paw. You may have to pick it up yourself at first. Regardless of the result, award him a treat. Eventually, he'll learn that when his paw is extended, he'll receive a treat and soon, he'll offer up his padded feet on his own.
