The Hand Touch

Posted: 12-19-2018 • Length: 4 Minutes, 28 Seconds
Categories: Advanced Obedience, Basic Obedience, Ed Frawley, Leerburg Training Videos

When we ask our dog for a hand touch, they stop what they are doing and touch their nose to the palm of our hand. When properly trained, the hand touch becomes a game for our dog. They like doing it because we make such a big deal out of it.

Combining the "Look" exercise and then using the Hand Touch is a great way to redirect our dog off of a distraction we find ourselves in. This could be other people walking by with dogs, bikes going by, or joggers running by on our walks. We simply ask for a LOOK, and expect our dog to sit (or stand) in front of us and look at our face until we release them with a hand touch.

This video is taken directly out of our online course and training DVD, Intermediate Dog Obedience.

This is a very useful command for a young pup to learn, it starts off a good positive attitude for the future
