Troubleshooting for Trick Training

Just like with teaching basic commands or solving problem behaviors, you will run into barriers when teaching tricks.

Usually the problem is a lack of motivation, or trying to train at the wrong time. You might not be using treats that provide enough motivation to get your dog to move the way you want her to. She may be too tired or too hungry to train. Think about these factors and decide what you can change to get better results.

Patience and persistence are also key here – don't expect your dog to pick up a trick in half an hour. With some dogs and some tricks, it can take a couple of months before it all clicks into place. Start with the tricks your dog finds easy, and build from there to the harder ones.
