Teach your dog to give a big kiss on command. Kiss is a lovely and fun trick to try out on yourself and others.

  1. Sit down with your dog and make kissing sounds to encourage him to lick your face.
  2. When he reacts by doing so simply reinforce the action, reward and add the command word
  3. With practice your dog will soon be kissing you on command.

Top tip; if your dog doesn’t get the idea perhaps allow him to take a small treat from your mouth and reinforce as he touches you initially then progress.

Dog trainers love this trick because it is great fun and easy to teach.
