Teach your dog the command, "paws up"

When it comes to teaching your dog targeting skills, leash skills, and other fun training commands like, "hug", the command "paws up" will become your best friend! This command is simply getting your dog to target an elevated platform or object and putting his paws on it when commanded. Here's how you'll teach it to your dog:

For starters, you'll want to grab some treats and your training clicker. In addition, you'll want some sort of elevated platform. This could be a stacking block, cot, or even a chair.
