Among the every dog owners who doesn’t want that their dogs will bring something on their mouth for them the things they needed.
But unfortunately some fails to learn their little pet this tricks for their own mistakes.
This is really very easy to teach them holding something on their mouth without chewing it.
I am going to show you some effective techniques on how to teach a dog to hold something on his mouth which will definitely help you to teach him the exact thing. Let’s see what the tricks are.
You need some objects first and without these you will not be able to teach your dog how to hold something. You have to manage a 12 inch long of 1 inch diameter PVC pipe or you can also use light weighted dumbbell.
Then you need some peanut butter (oh, it’s so yummy!). These things will help you a lot to teach him properly.
Train Him to seat in Front of You
The first thing to teach a dog to hold something is to teach him to sit in front of you.
Though he already knows that how to sit but now time to train him always sit on your command. That means from now he will sit only that time and that place where you will allow him to sit.
For this the one and only thing is that fix a place such as your left side, right side or in front of you and frequently give him lot of cookies, toys and praise when he follows your command.
And day by day you will definitely see the result even if you don’t give him cookies or any treat he will sit in front of you.
Teach him to Hold Something on his Mouth
The second thing you have to do is to sit the dog in front of you. Spread the peanut butter on the pipe then take the pipe in front of his nose and allow him to smell it.
When he will begin to lick it, give him the take it command and if he open his mouth to hold it then praise him.
Repeat this session until he understands the meaning of the take it or hold it command and hold the pipe on his mouth.
After repeating these process several times you yourself will be able to teach him to hold something on his mouth.
Timing is Very Important
When he will learn to hold something on his mouth then it’s time to increase his holding time. If he holds the pipe on his mouth for 4 sec then nothing to worry he will gradually hold it for long time.
And never put the pipe on the dog’s mouth. You will have to teach him to grab it by himself.
For this, you can do one thing. When the first time you will take the pipe on which the peanut butter is spread in front of his nose and when he will begin to lick it then gradually take it away from his nose and don’t give him until he snatches it away from your hand.
By doing so, you will be able to teach him to grab things by himself.
Picking up Things from Ground
Now it’s time to teach him to pick up things from ground. Totally free something on the floor and give your dog the picks up, take it or hold it command.
If he doesn’t express the willingness of picking that object from the floor and feels comfortable to take things from your hand then you have to apply another trick.
Take that object on your hand and put your hand very close to floor and then give him the take it command and if this time he grab that thing then gradually you have to move away your hand and let him picking things from floor or anywhere.
By teaching this trick you will gradually be able to teach him to hold something on his mouth perfectly.
Finally, to teach or train your dog any type of new tricks or techniques the first and foremost thing you need is to work hard patiently.
Nothing you will get so easily and dog training is not as easy as someone thinks. But it’s not so difficult as well because here you have the most important role to play.
Everything depends up to you because first you are learning the training and then you are teaching your dog that thing. So, if you cannot understand the training you are going to train him you will not be able to teach him.
Try to repeat the training session as much as you can in a day but shortly. If you take very long time each time of training then his mind will be distracted and he will forget what you are trying to teach him.
So, you have to work trickily. Try to spend time with him as much as you can and don’t ever punish him. Punishment cannot change anything and will fell a negative impact of his mind.
So, be friendly with him, work with him and teach him to hold something on his mouth calmly and patiently following the above proven methods. You are sure to be succeeded.
