Six-month-old Bonnie learns the dog trick, 'high five'.

I have always enjoyed teaching my dogs to do tricks. It's something I can do for short time whenever I have a few minutes with nothing to do. Since Bonnie is a new dog for me, I am inspired to learn and teach her tricks that I've never taught before.

'High Five' is a trick I've never taught, but I've seen dogs do it and I've read instructions on how to do it. It always seemed like it would be fairly easy to do, but I had never tried it. So now it was time to try it with Bonnie.

She learned the trick quickly. I had taught her to shake hands when she was three months old, so she is used to giving us her paw. I decided to have her use the other paw for the 'High Five'.

I've made a short video of Bonnie learning the 'High Five'. Can your dog do a 'High Five'?
