Teach your dog to WAVE!
Rover demonstrating WAVE.
WAVE can be taught after you have taught your Rover GIVE YOUR PAW. It
is extremely cute and if you want to, you can combine it with SIT UP. This
takes more work though.
Tell Rover to SIT and to GIVE YOUR PAW WAVE. Now, instead of reaching for
Rovers paw, lift your hand a little higher so Rover must lift his foot up
to reach your hand. Don't let Rover put his paw in your hand. Pull back your
hand. Praise Rover for trying to put his paw in your hand. (He will be very
confused, but it's okay).
Do it again
saying ROVER, GIVE YOUR PAW WAVE. Hold your hand higher than you would for
GIVE YOUR PAW, and don't let him put his paw in it. But you don't want to
hold your hand to high, or he won't even try.
have done this a couple of times you can start dropping the GIVE YOUR PAW,
and just say WAVE.
