You've just given your puppy a bath and now their little body is covered in dripping water. You don't want them to run around your house while wet. You wait in the bathroom, hoping they'll shake some of the water off. Time ticks by and your pup shows no sign of shaking. You wish there was a way to speed up the process. Training your puppy to shake his body can save your home from a wet puppy rampage.
Your puppy already shakes when wet or dirty. With this command, you can harness their natural inclinations to keep your home and car nice and clean. However, as with any command, you will need to be patient with your pup. Young dogs have short attention spans but are incredibly eager to please. With a little bit of perseverance, you will have your puppy shaking his entire body on command in no time.
For this command, you will need a place to bathe your dog, such as a tub, kiddie pool or shower, and some treats. You want a good reward that will encourage your puppy to keep performing the action you desire. It is best to work on this command somewhere that can safely get wet, such as your backyard or bathroom.
