How to teach your dog: "Touch!" — a genius re-positioning tool
A simple technique that can reap major benefits for your little pooch
Welcome to CBC Life's pet training classes. This series of short videos will teach you how to get your pup to obey simple commands that can be used in a wide variety of situations.
This week Danielle Hodges teaches us how to get your dog to "touch" your hand — with the assistance of Gordon! The idea is to appeal to your dog's curiosity: holding out your hand out, and away from where you don't want them to be, so that they re-position themselves out of that taboo area.
Persistence is key with this command; re-teaching this in different rooms so they will eventually be accustomed to obeying this anywhere.
