Training & Teaching Dog How to Knock Door

Go to Index

Training a dog to use the paw will give it dexterity. This is one of the ways the dog gets in touch and you state the bases to "give the paw"; a valuable game since raising the paw is a submission gesture and by doing it, you are reinforcing your position as the leader of the flock.
1. With the dog at your left, order it to sit. Get on your knees next to the dog, hold its collar with the left hand and show it the food you keep in your right hand.
2. Lower your right hand to the floor, until you get to the front paws of the dog. Hold the collar in order to keep the dog from laying down.
3. Get the food closer to the front paws of the dog. When the dog raises the paw, put your fist under it and then raise it from the floor slowly. Keep on grabbing the dog by the collar.
4. With the dog's paw resting on your fist, raise and give the dog the order "paw"
ADVICE 297
Then, give the food to the dog. Repeat the exercise using the word paw instead of the food to reward its obedience.
5. Once the dog gets to always raise the paw to your hand just with the verbal order, show the animal that you are hiding a food reward behind a piece of something.
6. Give the dog the order "paw" and reward it with the food when it touches the object placed in front of the paw. This will be the base for a series of touching games that are very useful in many cases.
TOUCHING GAME
ADVICE 298
Once the dog learnt to use its paws when it is ordered so, then you can teach the dog to open doors and games that are mentally stimulating.
EXCESSIVE USE OF THE PAW
ADVICE 299
If the dog claims for your attention excessively by touching you with the paw, say "NO" firmly and order it to lay down. However, the dog is indicating you that it needs stimulus.
WALKING NEXT TO YOU
Before beginning the following lesson that it is convenient for the dog to know how to sit obediently before teaching it to walk next to you. Begin by training it in a quiet room, walking to a door that doesn't lead outside. Increase the distractions until the dog walks quietly next to you towards the front door.
ADVICE 300
If your dog is strong or unruly, you will be able to control it better by using a head collar. Try to constantly repeat the order "next to me".
1. Begin the training with the dog sitting at your left and tied with a retractable leash that you will hold with your right hand, in which you will have besides, a food reward. Hold the other edge of the leash inn your left hand, near the collar.
2. Once the dog is able to walk twenty steps without a problem, use the food reward to induce it to turn right.
3. Sliding your left hand through the leash up to the collar and guiding the dog with your left leg, increase the speed while the dog stops to turn left.
4. Now you can turn in circles. Keep on using the food to incite the dog, call it by its name and order "next to me" while you make a complete turn.
NEXT TO YOU OFF THE LEASH
Once the dog learnt to walk next to you on the leash, repeat the exercise without it.
ADVICE 301
Put the leash on your shoulder and take a food prize with you.
Keeping the dog next to your left leg and holding the food prize in your right hand, order "next to me" and lead the dog to the right.
ADVICE 302
Show the dog the food you have in your right hand by crossing your arm in front of your body, while, with your left food you keep the dog from turning right and you give the order "next to me". The dog will slow down in order to be close to the food.
