Dog Trick Training Tips : Myths About Dog Training Breeds

What type of dogs are good at trick activities?
Many customers ask me this question and I normally will respond by saying it is not
true, you can teach an old dog new tricks. So most of the dogs you see doing agility
or different types of circus tricks, they may be Australian Shepherds, Border Collies
or different types of Terrier dogs such as a Jack Russell. But truly in my experience
of training over five hundred dogs in the greater Arizona Valley, I’ve seen a majority
of pure bred dogs to mix breeds all exhibiting the ability to do difficult tricks. Throughout
my series you’ve heard me talk about dedication, commitment, routine and repetition. The more
you can work with your dog in the early stages of using food as bait, once the dog learns
the trick, truly you’re not going to need any food. You’re just going to need vocal
praise and physical affection to let the dog know that they did a good job.

    He's right. Any dog really can learn tricks. I have ridgebacks (hounds). Everyone always says hounds are difficult to train, but with positive training methods, you really can train your dog how to do anything. Give it a try! ๐Ÿ™‚

    ANY dog can learn tricks, however, it has been proven that certain breeds as a whole learn better and faster, more easily.

    i think it training a mix breed is the same as training a full bred, just as long as the parents were smart and handed some down! xD

    I love ridgebacks. My friend's Ridgeback bitch is better trained and more obedient than her collie and lab. They have all recieved the same treatment, she just took to it better. I look after the bitch when she is in season (the other 2 dogs are males so she can't be around them at that time) and she really is a bright dog, no trouble at all.

    i saw a woman at sonic burger sharing an icecream with her dog. i felt like punching her in the face

  9. neoserenity333 says:

    i gave it a thumbs up, not for the woman, but for your wanting to punch her in the face. why do stupid people own dogs? there should be a law against that.

  10. Murgertroy says:

    the woman was sick in the head

  12. snuggliepuppy says:

    totally agree!

    Fabletv a trick is a behavior. Sitting is a behavior, etc. The only thing I would add to this video is allowing the dog to be trained by targeting, offering behaviors on it's own, or shaping the behavior. This way you don't need to fade your food lure.

    Our dog HATES physical affection while working. Food and toys really do the trick for him.

    True! Everyone says you can't train huskies, two of my classmates have huskies
    (brothers) and in a few weeks they'll be ready to compete for their Companion Dog title. One of them is more obedient than my border collie!

  18. Weston Bickley says:

    @Murgertroy that seems overly violent to me

  19. Wtflolyay says:

  21. Scooter.Newt says:

    This is true. I find that My Pit Bull and Chow-Chow can execute the same tricks as any border collie. Yet borders always get the credit for being easily trained
