Teach – #52Snapshots

For this week’s #52Snapshots of Life theme teach, I decided to share some photos of a trick I’ve been practicing with Sadie. I take a treat or piece of food and hide it in one of my hands. Then I hold out both of my hands, closed so Sadie can’t see the treat, and ask her “Which hand is it in?” Sadie needs to respond by tapping the correct fist with her paw before I give her the treat. If she uses her mouth or head or tries to force my hand open, I just repeat the command. But when she uses her paw to correctly identify the hand with the treat, I open my hand and allow her to take the treat.

  1. Sadie, you are so smart! And cute! When I try that trick with Sophie, she gets so excited, she paws my hand to death! I have scratches from that pup! But she loves it. The newest game I’ve taught Sophie and Jasper is “Find the Treats.” I put them in a sit/stay by their beds, hide the treats in an adjacent room (they actually stay and wait for my release command, which never ceases to amaze me), then it’s “Go find the treats!” They love it and are getting really good at my ever-increasingly difficult hiding spots! 🙂
