Kolchak and I have been working on a creepy new Halloween trick.
He’s a bit of a show off and when he wants attention, he has a tendency to “throw tricks”. He just does his current fav over and over again until you tell him how clever and good he is. A snack never goes amiss.
I thought “crawl” would be the perfect trick to teach for Halloween, so he can creep the heck out of visitors as he slowly (and a little awkwardly) creeps across the floor giving the a very strong and unblinking stare lol!
Teach your dog to crawl is so easy.
One of the easiest dog tricks I think I’ve taught Kolchak, in fact. It helps if you have a super high value treat that your dog LOVES and if they already have a rock solid “down” command.
Ask your dog to lie down.
At this stage, I really like to reward fast and often. I’m setting Kol up for good behaviour and whetting his appetite. The more he believes he’s going to get a treat, the harder he’ll work to earn it.
Hold a treat under their nose, very close to the ground.
If your dog moves to take the treat without standing, reward them.
If they attempt to give up, give them the down command again and restart the trick.
Slowly move the treats along the floor, luring your dog forward.
**Reward frequently** Any time your dog moves their paws towards the treat without standing, treat them.. If they stand, re-give the down command, reward and start again.
As your dog is consistently moving forward without standing, start giving the “crawl” command.
In no time, you’re dog will be creeping across the floor and scaring the heck out of visitors like this little black monster.
