How to teach a puppy to let go

Among dogs of all ages, puppies are the fastest learners. Don’t be fooled by the oversized paws and the sweet smell of newborn babies: the puppy’s brain is powerful!

In that puppy’s young body, only the clumsy brain is eager to learn new things. Where is the best starting point? Of course there is a foundation.

For most new parents of puppies, it is easy to get their hips sitting firmly on the floor. Next on the list: Lie down.

This technique is a bit more complicated, but we have broken down it step by step below. All you need is delicious food and a clicker to get started.

Step 1: teach the puppy to sit down from a standing position

  1. Hold the puppy’s tone tightly and enjoy snacks. They can even lick it a little bit, but hold it tightly to avoid being broken by their fingers.
  2. Now they began to slowly lift the food upwards so that their muzzles stuck to them like magnets. When their noses rise, their buttocks will naturally fall to the ground.
  3. After hitting the ground, he immediately marked it with the words “Yes!” Or click the device and release the treat.

Does your puppy stand on its hind legs instead of planting its butt for treatment? Lower your snacks and apply a little pressure to encourage their hind limbs to face the ground instead of standing up.

Step 2: Teach the puppy to lie down from a sitting position

  1. Grab another snack and place it in the same place as the muzzle of the puppy, allowing them to lick it at will.
  2. Slowly put your hand on the ground, so that their tone of voice follows. Stop about an inch from the ground, and then secure your hand/treatment device in place. When your puppies are trying to figure out how to get treatment, most people will eventually think of the idea of ​​lowering their body to the ground.
  3. When they lie down, mark this moment with the word “Yes!” Or click the device and release the treat.

If your puppy does not solve the problem on their own, they are most likely just confused about what you want. Some puppies like to lay flat like pancakes, and some puppies bend like question marks. You may not know what your dog’s tendencies are, so try these two tips to see which works better:

Training lying flat

  1. Lower the snack directly to the ground slowly so that the muzzle of the puppy sticks to it like a magnet.
  2. When you reach the floor, slowly pull the snacks back toward you so that they cross the floor so that their muzzles are always in contact.
  3. When they are flat, put a “Yes!” mark. Or clickers and rewards.

Training on the side

  1. Lower the snack directly to the ground slowly so that the muzzle of the puppy sticks to it like a magnet.
  2. When you reach the floor, slowly push your hands towards the puppy’s body. They should bend their spine to follow the treatment and fail on their side.
  3. When they are completely on the ground, please mark “Yes!”. Or clickers and rewards.

How to teach a puppy to stand from a low position

  1. Grab the snack and place it on the dog’s muzzle.
  2. Slowly pull it back toward you to keep your hands in a stable position on the floor (so, don’t lift your hands to the sky).
  3. To enjoy snacks, your puppies must stand up. When they do, mark it with “Yes!” Or clickers and rewards.

Step 5: teach puppy push-ups

Once your puppy is good at all parts of push-ups, combine them into one move.

  1. Enjoy a snack on the dog’s muzzle and slowly lift it up and let them sit down. Next, without releasing the food, immediately lower the food to the ground. When they are depressed, please don’t feast on them! Pull it back toward you so that your puppy can follow it. Once they stand up, mark with “Yes!” Or clickers and rewards. Repeat at least five times.
  2. Try the same thing now without processing. Keep your empty fingers in the same position, lift up to sit down, lower to lowered, and then pull back to the stand. Mark it as “Yes!” or clicker and treat to reward your puppies. Repeat at least five times.
  3. Since they can do push-ups without doing anything, you can name each action. Say “sit” and raise your hand. When your dog sits down, say “down” and then put your hand on the ground. When your dog lies down, say “stand up” and pull your hands back. When they stand up again, please mark “Yes!” or clicker and treat to reward your puppies.
