Thread: Shake Hands

  1. #1

    Default Shake Hands

    I have to say that yesterday night for the first time Murphy lifted his leg to shake on comand.
    I have just done this shake then tapp his leg so he raises it. I then take it and shake his paw while saying shake. I have honestly only done about 5 session each onbly lasting a couple of minutes.
    So I was such a pround dad to my boy last night.
    The wife was on the computer so I took him in there and done it in front of her so she could see him do it.
    These Heelers really learn quick, I think this was even quicker than our last Heeler.

    I have to say I do use treats with all my training.
    So it is reward for the right thing even if it is close to what I wanted at least he is getting the idea.
    I have been doing the drops as well.
    Plus the, from a drop to a sit, these all are in the shake sessions.
    So he is picking it all up bit by bit.

    Ziggy learned 'shake' really quickly as well; only a couple of sessions with a four or five repetitions each time (cattle dog X). We use treats also, she is very food motivated.

    Top work, Ridstars

    My dog learned to shake as a variation of her own command "pat my tummy" ie she would hook her paw around your hand and put your hand on her tummy for belly rub.

    She does most of the training round here, I'm sure.

    Good job, congrats to Murphy.

    We had a super smart staffy/lab x. You only had to show her something once/give a command for an action she was already doing once and it was stuck for life.

    My OH taught her to shake when she was about 6 in about 30 seconds and the cheeky wench used to use it as "please" when she wanted food you were eating LOL

    My sasha is driving me crazy with the "shake". every dog i have had that i can remember has been taught this with very little effort, most of them by myself. ( not my dogs, i had many homes in my teens and liked to teach other peoples dogs "tricks")..

    I think sasha is lazy! or she knows i just will give up if she turns her head and looks in another direction. I have used all sorts of treats, rewards, excitement.... nothing.

    Sitting was never a problem for her,and she now has good recall but anything else, dog help me.

    Congrats Rid!

    My minis did very quick as well. If treats are really good, "shake" can become "hi five" and even "wave" with super treats (such as beef steak)
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.
