Trick Tuesday: Spin and Unwind

Welcome back to Trick Tuesday! Every Tuesday, another trick!

This week we add a bi-directional spin to our bag of tricks. This trick is lots of fun and can even turn into a “washing machine” command. Once your dog understands how to spin in both directions individually, you can put them together.

Method: Luring
Skill Level: Beginner
What you’ll need: Food, dog, conditioned reinforcer

We also talk about proper timing when adding in verbal cues in this video.  It’s very important to separate your verbal from your signal to help the dog learn a behaviour on the verbal cue alone.  Watch the video for more details.

Happy trick training!
