A neat twist on "Give Paw"

Most dog owners at one time or another have taught their dog to shake or give paw. A fun twist is to teach your dog to "high five". It is just what it sounds like and in some cases can be easier to teach!

I'll use "Fido" as our dog for these instructions.
Step 1: Have Fido sit in front of you
Step 2: Put your hand up in front of you about level with Fido's nose Step
3: In an excited voice say "Fido, high five!" while moving your hand in a forward petting motion. This motion will encourage your dog to paw at your hand.

When Fido paws at your hand reward and make a big deal. This is a fun and easy trick that most dogs will learn quickly. So go ahead and give it a try and send in your pictures or videos!
