How To Train A Dog To Leap You

This tutorial is part of The Ultimate List Of Dog Trick Ideas which contains 99 other tricks like this!

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.

  1. It will be easier to teach this if you have a helper, target stick and of course some tasty treats.
  2. 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.
  3. Extend the jump until your dog is jumping the helper completely. Reinforce this action.
  4. 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.
