Bentley’s nails are looking a bit long. I figured I would teach him how to give paw in preparation for his paws being handled at the groomer. I started by trying to get him to sit.  Now, he knows how to sit. He does it all the time before we go on walks so I can put the leash on. But whenever there’s a treat involved he seems to think that he must lay down for the treat. So the hardest part of this was getting him to sit and stay sitting rather than laying down!  Then I would tap on the back of his leg to get him to lift his paw up.

 

 

As you can see, he wasn’t quite getting it. BUT! A couple days later, I tried again, and this time, he gave his paw like a pro!
