The “Shake Hands” trick is definitely one of the cuter tricks your pup can learn. It is quite simple and is actually one of the easiest tricks to teach. The secret is that your dog will already naturally paw at you if he wants something. When you present a fisted hand with treats inside, your dog will be compelled to paw at your hand since they can’t get the treats with their mouth. Once they continue to paw, begin to use the command “Shake” and after repeating it several times, your dog is sure to learn a brand new trick.
