Canine Freestyle Footwork Trick! – Dog Tricks Training

This is a super cute trick! A word of warning, don’t train paw work as one of the first behaviors you train your dog. First train your dog a handful of other behaviors you don’t mind your dog “offering” to you, until they learn the concept of only doing a specific behavior when asked.

To teach this trick your dog will first need to know a couple of foundations:
1 The sit stay
2 To offer his his left and right paw on cue

Happy training 🙂 Love, KIKOPUP

Dear Emily;

Me and my boyfriend are expecting a border collie puppy by the end of the summer. I have been watching your videos for quite a long time now, and I would like to express my gratitude for showing me that there is another way of training, as well as ask a few questions.
I noticed that some of the tricks has somewhat like a "recommended age". I would like to know exactly, when it is safe to start to train the following tricks:
Handstand+walk, bouncing off walls and/or people (me), jumping over arms, limb, sword fight, "dancing", or simply walking on her back legs, and sit pretty.
I am unsure about these tricks, as I figured they contain repetarive jump (Which you made a warn about before) or unnatural poses.

Thanks for posting another excellent video tutorial.. Absolutely love your videos & (whilst a bit presumptuous) always look forwarded to the next.
As is often said you are a great inspiration. Wonderful work.

Loby says:

This is so cute and amazing! ♡
I've actually just started these tricks with my boy. It's a wonderful bond.

It's amazing to see you making videos again! I've been teaching the jump through legs video you posted, but after that I'll teach this one!

Great tutorial! Thank you! I am so exited to give it a go with my dog! You've been such a huge inspiration for the past 3 years, so thank you so much <3
We've made a lot of progress and your tutorials have always helped us perfect it. Sometimes we will change it up just a little bit to suit the specific dog, but they have always helped 🙂
You can see some of the tricks I have taught my chihuahua/corgi on my channel if you are interested btw
Oh and also, how old is the chihuahua?
