how to teach crawl?

Postby mackbeezy » Wed Mar 21, 2007 7:51 pm

My JRT, Mack, has mastered all the basics. Sit, lay down, stay, shake, high five, and even walk on his back feet for a few seconds. We are in the process of learning "roll over," but one trick I've been really wanting us to learn is crawl. But I don't know how to teach it! Any suggestions?

I would start out by having him lay dow, then put a treat in front of his nose, and drag it. Most likely he will follow, but not get up. Eventually he will get it. My border collie mix does crawl really well...my sheltie not so much.

Laika basically naield it, except keep a hand firmly on his/her back so you can gently prevent him from getting up. When the treat starts to slide away most dogs will do one or both (not both at same time obviously LOL), either get up and follow it, or sit and patiently wait for good ol mom or pop to stop goofing around and give the treat already.

It wont take long at all (usually first or second try) before they sort of half get up and lie down (back and forth, struggling against your hand) and half crawl. Not much longer and they will rarely get up when you say crawl.

Another way is to get a pipe big enough for them to easily crawl through but not stand up in. Make them lie down atleast partially in the pipe and then YOU go around to the other end. Give them whatever command you want to use for "Crawl", such as Crawl (lol) and they will quickly get the hang of it. Downsides to this method are, pipe takes up space, pipe costs money, dog may not understand that when ther eis no pipe he is still supposed to crawl.
