Weekly Trick – Bathroom Monitor
This has got to be one of the greatest tricks to teach your dog. If you live with a man who does not remember to put the toilet seat down, and you are sick of asking them to remember to do so, you can teach your dog to put the seat down and FLUSH!
Make sure you have something that motivates your dog, usually it is dog treats, but it can be toys, play, etc. Use that to help your dog learn this trick. Remember to give treats in moderation and to be patient as your dog learns this trick, it may take some time for them to get it down pat.
When you are teaching this trick, any contact they make at first, even if it is just a touch give them a treat/reward them.
You will also need a command word such as “toilet” or “flush” so that your dog can run to the bathroom and if the seat is up, he will know to put the seat down and flush it even when you are not in the room with your dog.
It is such a great trick to learn, and you and your dog will impress your friends when they are over and you show them this trick.
There is a video that explains this in three simple steps. It is NOT me in the video. If it is not the first video that plays, it is the third trick down on the list. I hope you enjoy and your doggies go on to learn and impress people with this great trick!
