Dogs provide us unconditional love and affection. Undoubtedly, dog is a man's best friend. There love and affection not only brings a smile on our face but also radiates ample of positive vibrations.

Dogs travel hundreds of miles during their lifetime responding to commands as "come" and "fetch."

In no time, they become one of the most important and loved members of the family. Not only their cuteness but loyalty is also a perk of adopting a dog/pup. But sometimes the communication between a dog and its owner often gets interrupted by the love we show to them.


In order to make sure that your dog behaves well and follows your orders here are some of the most essential and easy tricks you must teach your dog:

Calling them

Dogs

This trick includes telling your dog to come to you. It helps in preventing accidents and getting rid of the leash. To teach this you may start by putting a leash and collar on your dog. Then gently reach to his level and say, "Come" while slightly pulling the leash. When he gets to you, reward him with affection and a treat.

Make them sit

Dogs

One of the easiest dog tricks to teach is also very essential to further teach them to 'sit and stay' at a place. Start with holding a treat close to your dog’s nose. Then move your hand up, allowing his head to follow the treat and causing his bottom to lower. Once your dog's bottom is lowered down, say "Sit" and treat him for his obedience.

Sit and stay

Dogs

Once your dog is an expert to "sit", he must be taught to "stay" so that your dog is a lot less fragile while unattended. First, ask your dog to “Sit.” Then show the palm of your hand in front of them, and say “Stay.” Take a few steps back and reward him with a treat and affection if he/she stays. Gradually increase the number of steps you take before giving the treat. This exercise will help your dog in learning 'self-control'.

Let go

Dogs

No wonder how darling your pup is, curiosity often gets the better of him/her. Therefore teaching them to let go is very crucial when they smell something intriguing but possibly dangerous. Start by placing a treat in both the hands. Show him one enclosed fist with the treat inside. Let him lick, sniff, mouth, paw, and bark to try to get it. Ignore their behavior and say, “Leave it.” Once he stops trying, give him the treat from the other hand. You must repeat until your dog moves away from that first fist when you say, “Leave it.”


These simple four tricks will ensure good behavior as well as safety of your dog and its surroundings. Making your dog learn new tricks will help them utilize their energy in a productive task.
