This is a clicker training video on how to teach your dog to cross their paws. If you dont have a clicker you can always use some other noise maker like a cl…
i hid a tread under a bowl and my rottweiler just looked at me like wtf…
The dog was an Australian Shepard
well it helps train the dog and it can get their attention it actually
helps alot but i wouldnt know though i don’t have a puppy but i seen other
people do it
Thanks Emily. Love your videos. Linda Michaels, MA Psych, CPDT-KA
my dog was a stray and does this thing without training..she always did!
Question: Can you tell me why my dog is learning nthn’ anymore?
What kind of Brands of clickers are there? Would like to order one. Web
you have nice legs!
Yup, free shaping. When we started I first got kind of a paw “slap” on the
ground – then I started selectively rewarding for her slapping her paw to
the side and eventually over her other paw. Peanut, my shih-tzu, probably
never would have gotten anywhere that method either!
Good idea and nice use of clicker and fading target. I trained my two dogs
similarly but used a hand target instead of the yellow object. What it
doesn’t show is how to move from fading the object to using the handler’s
feet as a cue. Or the Chihuahua doing it – just a previously trained
Collie. I found it helped to move from hand target when the handler is
sitting and then to hand when standing. Move to hand and foot standing then
finally just foot.
Awesome vid! Looks fun!
Another great video! Thank you for taking the time to share your training
Awesome. I also think that seeing some of the trouble spots is very helpful.
Wonderful. I have now got my next trick to teach my dogs. Thanks.
my dogs cant even scratch at it they are obsessed with food haha
LET THEM LIVE FOR FUCKING SAKE !
RIDICULOUS. When the chihuahua was learning to cross, the clicker was
clicked, treat was given, mechanical. No connection or praise at all. Sad.
I just love this trick. One to teach Dude I think Nice work!
you can get a clikcer at petsmart. I got a nice one for a buck!
ill tri itttt
when you do your videos can you try to remember to tell us what words you
are using for the behavior.
Another great training video! Kiko is just so darn cute. I taught Daz to
cross her paws one way with just shaping and for the other way I used
basically this method. For her, this method definitely got a “cleaner”
behavior in the end!
ya man these vids are cool. is tht a chiwuwa?i have one and she is soo
scared of everything. tht looks like my friends dog.it looks like a mix
breed of some sort
You and your dogs are amazing! I ended up on one of your videos and
thought, “I’ll just watch this one,” and I’ve ended up watching almost all
of them! Truly amazing!
i tought this to my chihuahua puppy! it worked!
Adorable! You are a talented trainer! x
That Video is cool. I love your training videos and…I love my clicker :))

My mom has been trying to teach my australian sheperd to cross her paws for
a lone time, unsuccessfullly. Today I bought a clicker, and I was eager to
get my dog well trained! My mom doesn’t beleive clicker training will
work…i can’t want to see her face when my dog finally crosses her paws on
que! Thanks so much for the amazing vids!
Wal*Mart has them or any pet store like petco petsmart
A cracking video – something new to do for tomorrow. I loved the way Kiko
was watching you and Splash.
Great one!!! I also taught my one on targeting. :))) Can wait to see new
Another great trainging video. Thank you!
wer can i get the clicker
nice idea but when you fading a target is better to keep the same shape,
round shape the object, round shape the paper is much more easy for the dog
wonderful videos! we just got a 1 year old german shepherd and im really
looking forward to teaching him some tricks
Kiko did great! The matchsticks leg remark was too funny:). Thank you for
making this video:). I will try your techinique and post a video soon:).
Woofs n’ Wags, Ashley & Kaine Wow, Spalsh is REALLY good at crossing both
Should my dog know how to lay down first before I attempt this? Also I feel
very sorry for her when I watch these videos. She hears the clicker and
goes “wtf human?”
Sadly, I can’t teach my dog to cross paws because dachshund has short legs.
Also a soda can works!
There’s nothing wrong with that method. Extreme praise is usually done at
the end of a session for a well-done along with more treats. Believe me,
Kiko is plenty happy with learning that way.
I love all of your videos. Thank-you so much for posting them! They are
very clear and easy to follow. I’m wondering if there is a trick to getting
your dog to keep her paws crossed. My puppy has mastered crossing and will
do it without the target. However, I can’t get her to keep her paw on the
target. She moves it off so quickly that I can’t even click a second time.
my dog dont touch it with paw but with her head only:(
Thanks for this tutorial, you can see the result on video responses:)
