Step 1: Present your palm (or two fingers)


With your dog in a standing position (ideally), present your open palm, or two fingers, a couple of inches away from your dog’s face. If your dog looks at your palm or moves toward it, click (with the other hand and away from their head) and reach into your pouch to reward them with a treat. Be patient and keep your hand still. It might take them 30 seconds or more to look at your palm or investigate it closely. Once you click and treat, remove your hand and put it behind your back. Repeat until your dog succeeds 5 times in a row.
