To kick off the New Year we wanted to celebrate! 🎉 There is so much to celebrate, with January being National Walk your Pet Month and Train your Dog Month! While we are not professional pet trainers we wanted to share some other top trainer tips and tricks. So when you’re out walking your pet… why not train your pet to pick up litter so they can scoop 2 with you? Sounds like a great idea to us!
Check out this awesome video on how to train your pet to pick up litter so you can scoop 2 together:
With common commands here is how you can train your pet to pick up litter:
1st – train your pet how to retrieve
2nd – train your pet to “drop it”
3rd – train your pet to target certain items
4th – leave it command
Now this may sound simple, but as someone who owned a very stubborn Jack Russel terrier, he never would “drop it” so we didn’t get too far on this list. We hope your pet is less stubborn 😉 So 1, 2, 3 are all crucial, but 4 is also very important because the time may come that your pet goes to collect trash that may harm them and we certainly do not want that. So making sure you teach the “leave it” command should also be added to your list of training.
It is so cool to watch pets in scoop 2+ action! Check out these furry friends:
