The Doggie Deeva demonstrates how to teach your dog to touch your knee with his paw. First the dog must know how to shake hands, then it is easy to teach him this trick. You will need a clicker, some treats and lots of patience.
She starts by having the dog sit down, then points to her knee and says “paw”, a word that he already knows. When he touches her knee with his paw she clicks and gives him a treat. He only gets the treat when his paw actually touches her knee. She continues in this way, alternating knees, clicking and rewarding him each time he responds correctly.
She then makes it a bit harder by having him use his other paw. He soon learns that if she moves her right knee toward him he is to touch it with his left paw, and her left knee with his right paw.
