Weekly Trick – Go To Bed
Your dog can learn this trick with a little patience and a lot of praise!
You will need a dog bed, a leash and treats (in moderation).
First, walk over to your dog’s bed and say “go to bed” in a calming tone. Have a treat handy so that they can see it. Once the dog walks over to the bed tell them to lie down in a calming tone. You can use a leash here or not, to get them to focus on learning this trick.
It may take a while for your dog to go over to the bed and actually lie down, practice this trick in short intervals, no longer than about 5-10 minutes.
Once your dog learns the trick, you can take off the leash if you have used one, and they should no longer need the treat.
Here is a video of the trick. It is NOT ME in the video.
Have a great weekend!
