Question by jtexas: Teaching my puppy to shake — opinions?
Ever notice how people will hold out a hand to a sitting dog and say “shake”? I thought it would be fun if the dog, instead of offering a paw to shake hands, stood up and shook his body, like a wet dog.

Then I thought, would it be funnier if he did that to “shake it like a polaroid picture?” What do you think?

The best I can think of would involve soaking the dog.

Each time you soak him, mark the shaking behaviour with a treat or however you train.

Although, if your dog doesn’t like water, this may cause problems.

It’d be an interesting trick for sure.
