Cool Tricks to Teach Your Dog


Bailey learns the dog trick, 'Play Dead,'
or as we like to call it, "Take a Nap."
(This movie has sound.)

Ask your parents if you need to download your free QuickTime player to see the videos.  


 Play Dead
Take a Nap

Have your dog lay down on his tummy. As you gently roll him over on his side, say, "Take a nap." While he is laying on his side, keeping his head on the floor, say, "Take a nap." Don't give him a treat. Encourage him to stay there for a couple of seconds. Then say, "Ok" or "Wake up!", let him stand up, and give him his reward. 

You can use the treat to lure your dog into a laying down position. Don't give your a dog a reward while he is laying down. Give him a treat after he has completed the trick.
