    Question How do you teach your dog these tricks?

    Hey all,

    How do you teach your dog "Play dead" and "limp"?

    Thanks.

    Not sure about limp, but training them to play dead is pretty easy in my experience. https://www.thesprucepets.com/train-...y-dead-1117293

    I am a horrible person and you all are probably glad a person like me lost their dog.

    I never taught my Lilly any tricks. I only trained her to be a good dog. I never, ever thought of making her do anything like that. She did learn to sit, stay, come, follow, and she was great about just following me.

    Maybe tricks are for show dogs and all that, but remember to keep the dog's spirit up and understand positive reinforcement if you are forced to teach the dog tricks.

    I will surely agree with this. I don't train my dog, he learned it by doing it himself and I'm proud that he was able to do it without my help, he's really a strong and independent one.

    I don't think so. One of my friends have a dog who just knows sit, stay, come and paw. He is a great dog!

    Oh wow Saav, no one would ever think that about you. Teaching a dog to be a good dog like you did is all the training a dog ever needs and I'm sure everyone here will agree.

    I'm not glad you lost your dog! Did you really mean it?

    Training them in dead play I an easy one for me, but for the limp I'm not sure.
