There's nothing like a good bedtime routine! You and your pooch head to the washroom. First, you brush your teeth, then his. You put on your comfiest pajamas while your pooch fluffs up his bed. You curl up in the covers and peek over. Awe! Your little fur buddy is saying his prayers!
No, not really. But teaching your dog how to say his prayers is a pretty fun trick regardless. And it's sure to make all of your friends and family smile at your next barbeque!
For this fun little trick, your dog will learn how to put both of his paws up on a table or chair and bow his head down. In some variations, your dog doesn't leave the ground during the trick. It looks a lot like your pooch is saying a little prayer, hence the name.
