Australian Shepherd Photo of the Week

Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Cat and Jim Orkis

This is our three year old love of our lives Quin, doing what he loves most! We live in Grand Haven, Michigan and are lucky enough to have a dog beach. He loves walking the shore and playing Frisbee in the sand. However, the water is his passion! If we quit throwing the stick, he simply retrieves more—shovels and shoes and plastic bottles, etc.! It is the only time he does not obey our command to come.

Play Dead

This command is different from the plain “Down” technique – Play Dead really is a trick that requires practice. You’re going to teach your dog not just to lie down, but to stay completely still, acting as if she’s dead. When you teach tricks like this, the intelligence of your Aussie becomes really obvious.

1. Start with your dog in the Down position.

2. Using the same luring technique as you used for the Roll Over trick, start getting her to roll over by luring his attention over his shoulder.

3. You want to lure her to roll right onto her back. Don’t get her to roll right over.

4. Once she’s on her back, click and give a treat. Keep the treats coming and give her belly a rub to keep her on her back for a while.

5. Keep repeating this process, and start using the “Play Dead” command before she rolls onto her back.

The end result of this trick is that you can get your dog to roll onto her back with her legs in the air every time you give the “Play Dead” command.
