Trick Tuesday: Hand Stand

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

This week’s trick is about balance and rear-end awareness.  We are going to teach our dogs to do a hand stand.  Before starting this trick, make sure your dog is physically fit and capable of putting pressure on their front end.

We are going to use our back-up command and a ramp to teach our dogs to balance on their front end only.

Method: Capturing
Skill Level: Advanced
What you’ll need: Food, dog, conditioned reinforcer, movable ramp

Happy training!!!
