Trick Tuesday: Back Up

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

This week’s trick is all about fun!  We are going to teach our dogs to back up on command.  This one is for everyone!  Any dog can participate.

Our goal is to start by rewarding 1 step backward, then 2, and then ask for a bit more with each repetition.

Therefore, we’ll be capturing the behaviour we want from our dogs.

Method: Capturing
Skill Level: Intermediate
What you’ll need: Food, dog, conditioned reinforcer

Happy training!!!
