Gettin’ Tricky with Boy: Balancing and Catching a Treat

 

Boy and I thought we had to try out the new POWER POPS! by Dr. Harvey’s with a new trick. What better party trick than balancing and catching a treat?!

The first step is to place a treat on your dog’s nose.

Hold the treat on your dog’s snout and say “waiiiiiiiiit.”

Now, let go of his snout and tell him a “get it” cue. 

Do not expect a long duration of holding the treat when you first start this trick. You want to start with quickly releasing him and work toward a longer hold each repetition.

Remember, practice makes perfect! Some dogs might throw a treat further than others before s/he masters snatching the airborne treat!

Have fun! Let me and Boy know how it goes…

Here is a fun blooper from our training session. Boy accidentally snapped my thumb instead of the treat! I think he felt bad because for the rest of that session he didn’t try as hard 😉
