What You Need:

The only things needed whentraining a dog to paw shake paws is your dog and a handful of treats. If you are clicker training, you will need your clicker.

Here’s How to Do It

  1. Have your dog sit. If he doesn’t know how to sit, go back and practice that command before moving on to step two.
  2. Hold a treat in one hand, and show it to your dog. Close your fist over the treat so he can’t get it.
    1. Give your dog the command “shake,” and wave your closed fist under his nose to keep him interested in the treat.Wait for your dog to start digging in your hand for the treat. Usually dogs sniff around, and when that doesn’t work they begin to paw at your hand.
      1. Wait for your dog to start digging in your hand for the treat. Usually dogs sniff around, and when that doesn’t work they begin to paw at your hand.The moment your dog touches your hand with his paw, tell him “good” or click your clicker, and open your hand and allow him to have the treat.Practice “shake” for 5 minutes, two or three times a day. Your dog will be offering you his paw the moment you give the command

        Troubleshooting

        There are a few things you can do if your dog has trouble learning to shake:

        1. If your dog doesn’t put his paw on your hand, no matter how long you try to entice him with the treat, move the hand holding the treat closer to his paw. You can even give his leg or paw a little nudge. As soon as he raises his paw to your hand, give him the treat and follow the directions from step 5 above.
          1. If your dog still doesn’t understand what is expected of him after you nudge his paw, you can try lifting his paw into your hand yourself. Give the command “shake,” reach down and pick up his paw, and then tell him “good” or click your clicker and give him the treat. Repeat this quickly several times in a row giving him a treat each time, and then go back and start off from step 1 above. Most dogs will now understand what is expected, and begin to offer their paw

          Phasing Out the Treat

          Once your dog is offering his paw on command, you can begin phasing out the need to hold the treat in your closed hand. Here’s how to do it:

          1. Start with your hand closed over the treat, and give your dog the command “shake.” As soon as he offers his paw, give him a treat from your other hand rather than the one closed in your fist. Repeat this several times.
          2. Next, put out your hand without holding the treat inside and give the command “shake.” Give your dog a treat from your other hand as soon as he offers his paw.
          3. Practice step 2 over several training sessions. If your dog seems confused at any point, go back a step or two in your training.
          4. Now you are ready to phase out the treat almost entirely. Begin by offering a treat less frequently, first by giving him a treat after every other time he offers his paw on command. Slowly decrease the number of times your dog gets a treat after he offers his paw. Soon your dog will be offering his paw on command, and you will only need to give him anoccasional dog treat to reinforce the behavior.

Kimberly’s Pet Taxi & all pet sitting Services Hobart Pet care for when your not there

Safety & luxury transport for your pets!

Kimberly’s Pet Taxi has just been fitted out to the safety standards of pet travel.I have had several consults with various Vets throughout Hobart and had there feed back and suggestions on how to transport your pets in the up most safety and comfort of you pet family member.Also i went to the local council to affirm these and they have given me the go ahead with the safety i have taken on board.I had my van fitted out by the experts who fitted out the dogs home vans as well as the police sniffer dog vans as these are the proper safe way to transport your pets.I have done my homework to make sure your pets are safe and comfortable.Pets should not be put in a van together without barricades between them as if a fight breaks out this could be disastrous to you and your pet as  well as for me i do not need the headache of having to worry about this and neither should you.Your pets should be in a secure  area of it’s own to ensure your pet is safe and not sharing any other pets space unless they are of the same family.Even if a fight did not break out some pets get anxious and they might not show it but they could be very nervous and can bring on stress this is not good for your pets,so I have eliminated this problem your pet will not even see the pet next to them if there are a few pets traveling at the same time which does not happen often but just in case I am prepared for that. I was advised by the vets and the animal control that pets should never be attached to any sort of lead while they are traveling as this is not the appropriate way to transport pets.My van is a Quality fitted out air-conditioned vehicle.With a touch of luxury all sections have there own mattresses and there is water on board as well as snacks provided.I will help you with your pet every step of the way if you want me to make an appointment for you i can arrange that.You are quite welcome to come for the drive if you wish as i hold a PPV license so i am Qualified  to do so.I will also arrange airport travel for your pets and i can arrange for your pets to be picked up at there destination in other states and taken where they need to be,i can also arrange for them to be taken to other airports throughout the state to board there flights so they can be bought down here and i will greet them at Hobart Airport and bring them to there final destination in comfort & safety.So whether your pets need to go to the Airport,Vets,Groomers,breeders,dog minders,pet sitters let me take them for you never fear Kimberly is here!
