I bet you want to have the coolest dog in your area! Who wouldn’t? You can find below some advices that will help you to make your dog special, great and skilled. Teach him these puppy tricks and you will be proud of him.

1. Most of the dogs like to lick. When he does so, let’s teach him to kiss. Each time your dog starts licking your face say “Give me a kiss” and when he does so, don’t forget to mention that he is a good dog and show him that you are satisfied with what he did. At the beginning you might have to put on your cheek something you know that your dog might like to eat. Later, whenever he licks, say “Give me a kiss” and “Give me a kiss again”.

2. Let’s also teach your dog how to go to bring you things. For the beginning take a stick and make your dog recognize it. Than throw the stick down and ask for it. You might have to ask it several times at the beginning, until the dog gets used to the command. When he takes the stick and give it to you reward him and encourage. Than throw the stick further and further and keep asking your dog to bring it back. You are going to have a lot of fun!
