Cooper is currently a gorgeous ball of fluff. Your puppy’s days are spent shuffling along the floor, eager to play and roll around with anyone in the vicinity. In fact, he's as friendly as they come. One thing that has surprised you though, is his endless amount of energy. How will you ever get him to sleep in the evenings? Fortunately, you’ve come up with a couple of ideas. One of those is training the pup to dance. If you can teach your puppy to dance, you’ll have a great way to bond with your canine pal while exercising him at the same time.
Also, who doesn’t love a dancing dog? You’ll have guests laughing every time. You’ll also feature on the Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram stories of anyone who comes to see them. Let’s just hope Cooper is ready to live life in the limelight.
The good news is, training your puppy to dance isn’t nearly as difficult as many people think. Once you have conveyed to them what it is you want them to do, you just need to reinforce the training with a range of tasty treats and other motivators. The trick is to turn training into one big game. This is how dogs learn best.
Because your puppy is young, they should be keen to please and not short of energy. This means you could see results in just a few days. But if your pup has a particularly short attention span and is more interested in lazing around, then you may need a couple of weeks. Stick with training and you’ll have the perfect dance partner. In fact, you’ll never have to be alone on the dance floor again!
Before you and Cooper get to work, you need to make sure you have a few bits. While you don’t need a whole dance floor, some space to practice where you won’t risk anything valuable being broken is advisable.
You will then need a decent supply of treats or his favorite food broken into small chunks. A clicker and a toy will also be required for one of the methods below.
Once you have all that, just bring patience and an optimistic attitude, then work can begin!
