There’s nothing cuter than a dog who gives it’s owner a High-Five on request. The perfect team needs the perfect celebratory gesture and with this guide, you’ll be mastering the command in no time.
When he’s engaged, get your dog to first Sit, then with your free hand, slowly pick up and hold his paw, like a hand shake but without shaking his paw.
Continue working on the trick, repeating the verbal phrase you’ve chosen slowly and calmly. Once you can perform the trick without having to pick up the dog’s paw, and he gives it to you after you’ve given the verbal cue, you’ve successfully taught the trick.
Keep the training sessions short and sweet, twenty minutes a day focusing on one trick at a time is all that’s needed.
