Party tricks are always a fun thing to learn! They may not have too many utilitarian uses, but it sure is fun to pull them off successfully.
Plus, learning these tricks once you have exhausted the basic set of obedience commands means not only do pup and parent continue to bond and have fun, but you continue providing enrichment for your pup!
Cooper the Golden Retriever is an overly excited puppy who is more interested in getting some attention from Dad, however. So when Dad pretends to fire off a gun at this pup while saying “bang,” it takes a while for this pup to respond.
Instead, Dad has to repeat the order a second time before Cooper catches on to what he is supposed to do. At that, he drops down onto the kitchen floor to roll over and play dead! His reaction time could do with some improving, but does that really matter when he is having fun?
