Bang. This trick is done by having your dog stay on its side or back and play possum. Say “bang” point your finger like a short gun, move the food lure as the above variation, or back say “stay” and keep the treat stationary.
Ask Nicely. Have your dog sit-stay and say “ruff” (or a bark equivalent) and raise the food lure a head’s length above the puppy’s nose so that it lifts its front paw of the ground. Lower the lure and move it backwards. Repeat from different directions.
“Repeat from different directions.”
Go to people. This works best when two people are training the dog at the same time, it is possible to do yo-yo recalls back and forth. A disadvantage of this trick is when working with just two people, the dog may anticipate recalls at inappropriate times and run back and forth between the two people without any instruction being given.
