We are happy to introduce you to another Dogo training plan – Strengthen your Friendship Training Program. If you want to impress your family and friends, learn those fun tricks with your dog. During this program, your dog will master 12 new skills within only 2 weeks.
We recommend the program to those who completed the Basic Obedience Program. It is important that your dog already knows the basic commands so the training of cute tricks can go smoothly.
Benefits of training cute skills
You could ask yourself: Why does my dog need to learn fun tricks at all? First of all, the training process is a great mental workout for your dog. Learning new things stimulates your dog’s brain which simply makes them smarter. A mentally challenging exercise is always a good idea for dogs at any age. It helps puppies discover and explore life as well as it keeps older dogs in a good mental condition for as long as possible.
Dogs are social animals. They prefer being around people or other pets much more than being alone. When they are being left alone or without any attention for hours, they might develop behavioral issues. Therefore, to prevent boredom or more serious condition, be sure to provide them with a great dose of various playing activities. Here comes Adorable Tricks Program, full of ideas on how to creatively spend time with your pooch!
Last but not least, training funny tricks together significantly improves your relationship. Trust us, it makes your dog so happy to be around you, especially when you give them your full attention. Remember that your attention is also a reward for your dog, sometimes even better than a yummy treat.
In the first week of the Strengthen your Friendship Program among others, you will teach your dog to give you a left paw, a right paw, and a high-five. You will also train your dog to perform the ‘’Rollover’’ trick. Additionally, you will practice the ‘’Relax’’ trick. It can be helpful especially with high energy dogs who don’t know how to calm down by themselves. Therefore, it is useful to teach them how to do it on command.
The second week of the training will challenge your dog’s balance. You will teach them even more impressive tricks, such as ‘’Sit pretty’’ (sitting on back paws), ‘’Footsies’’ (standing with their front paws on your feet and walking slowly together) and ‘’Peekaboo’’ (standing between your legs). In addition, your dog will learn other cute skills: how to show that they are shy, how to bark on command and how to look right and left. Exciting, right?
