March 30th: Teach Dog a New Trick

Everyone knows the saying… “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Well, I am attempting to break that stereotype! And honestly, I can see why that is a saying.

Mia just turned 7 in February and has always been a pretty well behaved dog, spare some chewing on things and barking incessantly at the mailman everyday. 

Regardless, she has always know how to sit, shake, hi-five, and lay down. So the other day I really wanted to get her to learn “kiss”. She had never really been a dog that licks but I would just like to teach her to “kiss” on command. I worked on it for quite a while the other day… she is kissing now, but I do not think she actually knows what she is doing. Not like she does when she sits or shakes.

If anyone has some good tips for teaching dogs tricks please share them!
