If the foreknowledge is there, your kids can teach the doggy this new trick themselves. Don’t forget to let them in on the most important tip of all: click and treat.
Tell your dog to limp, crawl, and play dead, clicking and treating after he performs each action and then give him all three commands again, this time keeping the treat until the end.
Repeat several times. Now say “Bang!” before giving the three commands and while he is in his “play dead” position. Click, treat and continue to practice this, eventually getting rid of your three initial commands so that he does all three together as soon as he hears “Bang!”
The kids and their furry best friend are going to be the coolest thing on the block.
