These treats are perfect for rewarding your pet for good behavior, performing tricks, or just because! These are also good for helping to train your pet new tricks. Training your pet new tricks, dog or cat, can be difficult, but once they learn it, it can be so rewarding. Teaching your pet something new takes a lot of patience and even more treats for rewards.
Many people think tricks are just for dogs, but cats are more than capable of learning the same tricks as dogs. With the instructions below, teach your pet how to give a high five!
- Have your pet sit in front of you and make sure you have plenty of treats.
- Hold a treat in your hand and let your pet sniff it, but don’t let them eat it.
- Slowly move the treat back and forth above your pet’s head. If they stand or try and get on their hind legs, reset them and try again. If they mouth, take your hand away and reset.
- Repeat step 3 until your pet gently touches your hand with one paw. If they do, say the reward cue and give them a treat.
- Once your pet catches on, try without a treat in your hand and practice it several times.
- After your pet confidently touches your hand, open your hand and when your pet touches your palm, introduce the command “high five”. Reward them when they do.
- Continue to practice step 6 until your pet connects the command with the action and Voila! Your pet can give high fives!
