14. Fetch a drink from the fridge
Only teach this trick if your dog has a certain level of self-control and will not attempt to eat all of the food in your fridge once he gets inside. Attach a rope or tug toy to the door of your fridge.
Encourage your dog to tug on it until the door pops open. Reward him immediately. Next, hold the treat against the outside of the open door, and encourage your dog to jump up with his front paws so that the door swings shut.
Spend some time perfecting these steps until your dog can do them with vocal commands only. Place your dog’s favourite toy in the fridge in a place where he can see it clearly. After he opens the door, show him the toy if he doesn’t see it.
Encourage him to take it out carefully and bring it back to you. Once he has got the hang of this step, replace the toy with a small plastic bottle. Never use pressurised aluminium cans for this trick unless your dog knows how to grip items gently.
