Teaching dog tricks: bow

Views: 3132
Length: 10:19
The perfect finish to any demonstration of dog skills has to be the bow (or curtsy for females!) In this video, our trick training expert, Chris Mancini, shows us how to teach it. By seeing the move broken down into step-by-step stages, we learn not only how to teach the bow but it's reverse the "bottom up".

Once the behaviour is secure, the trainer can work on a variety of signals to cue it. Hand and foot signals are particularly helpful if the dog is deaf or if sound would be inappropriate such as on a film set. See if you can spot the foot signal Chris has added to cue this trick.
