Your dog will jump over the back of a person on their hands and knees when performing this trick. When the command is learned it can be extended in order for your dog to jump over you. This is a great trick to add into any routine.
- It will be easier to teach this if you have a helper, target stick and of course some tasty treats.
- Ask your helper to kneel on the ground in a hands and knees position and use the target stick to encourage your dog to jump into the air beside them.
- Extend the jump until your dog is jumping the helper completely. Reinforce this action.
- Add your command word and practice until perfect.
Top tip; if a helper on his knees is too high begin by teaching your dog to jump someone lying down.
Dog trainers love this trick because it improves stamina in a dog and trust between dog and trainer.
