Are you tired of teaching your dog the same old tricks? Do you want to add a little fun and quirkiness to your dog’s training? Then it’s time to teach your dog the Hokey Pokey!
The Hokey Pokey is a classic dance and song that many of us learned as kids. But did you know that it can also be a fun and engaging way to train your dog? Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Start with the basics. Teach your dog the “sit,” “down,” and “stand” commands. These will be the foundation for the Hokey Pokey dance.
Step 2: Add in the twist. Once your dog is comfortable with the basics, it’s time to add in the twist. When you give the command to “sit,” move your hand in a circular motion to the left or right. Your dog should follow your hand and turn in a circle.
Step 3: Add in the shake. After your dog completes the circle, give the command to “shake.” Your dog should lift one paw and shake it.
Step 4: Add in the turn. After your dog shakes, give the command to “turn around.” Your dog should turn in a circle, either to the left or right, depending on which way you initially turned.
Step 5: Put it all together. Once your dog has mastered the individual commands, it’s time to put it all together into the Hokey Pokey dance! Give the commands in the following order: “sit,” “twist,” “shake,” “turn around.” Repeat as many times as you like.
Not only is the Hokey Pokey a fun and quirky trick to teach your dog, but it also helps improve their coordination and body awareness. Plus, it’s a great way to bond with your furry friend and have some silly fun together!
So why not try teaching your dog the Hokey Pokey today?
It’s a unique and entertaining way to train your dog and bring a little joy to both of your lives.
