This is a physically demanding trick that must only be carried out by a dog that has physically sound hips and rear legs. He will learn to stand up on his rear legs and twirl in a circle; it looks impressive and is great fun.
- Use your target stick to encourage your dog to stand on his rear legs then gently turn it in a circle so that your dog follows it with his nose.
- Add your command and reinforce and reward.
- Now this trick may take time and encouragement to teach but with patience and perseverance your dog will be preforming like a true professional. Keep sessions short and sweet.
Top tip; if your dog does not go a full circle initially that’s no problem, in fact few do. Simply reinforce part turns and build up to a full circle gradually.
Dog trainers love this trick because it is amazing to watch and extremely impressive.
