Telling Your Dog To Back Up Is Both A Fun Dog Trick And Training
Telling your dog to back up is both a fun dog trick and training that has practical uses. Many dogs pick up this trick quickly. It's a fun command to add to training sessions. You don't need special equipment to train your dog back up. Start by giving your dog the stay command. If your dog doesn't know how to stay yet, it would help if you went back and worked on that before moving on to the next step. Practice these steps for a few minutes each day. Your dog will soon respond to the back up command. Use the part of your leg above your knee to gently give back. As soon as the dog moves back, you can offer praise or give it a treat. It is important to keep training sessions short and positive; practice for only about ten minutes. . . .
