This is a trick for ADULTS to teach to dogs. In fact children should never teach dogs tricks alone, and should be supervised at all times around dogs. Remember! ALWAYS use a TOY or soft object for this trick! The idea is to have fun with your dog in a SAFE environment. NEVER swing an object at a dog without training the dog to feel relaxed and comfortable with the “game”! NEVER actually TOUCH the dog with the object in this video- if the dog doesnt want to jump, be patient and go back a step. This trick is about teaching the dog to jump for the fun of it, like in agility, not to jump out of avoidance.
