Giving your dog a task to earn attention gives him confidence as he learns to predict his environment and apply constructive behavior to achieving his goals. Teaching your dog to do puppy push ups to get your attention, or a meal, is a great way to give your dog a task which he can use to earn the things he needs and wants.
Teaching your dog to do puppy push ups is a great game for your dog that provides him with entertainment and has some great fitness benefits too. Do you have a dog that is bored, stuck inside due to weather, or needs to be distracted from a behavior that is becoming obsessive? Puppy push ups can also be used as a substitute behavior to distract your dog in a situation where he is becoming anxious or out of control by proving another activity to draw his focus. Push ups can also be a great way to provide your dog a job that allows him to earn something, like a walk, play time, or a meal. When you give your dog a job, and he understands the pay off for successfully completing his job, it builds confidence which can be used to counteract psychological issues such as boredom and anxiety.
