– Look. (camera snapping) Good boy. Look. (camera snapping) Good boy. It’s always interesting to see that sometimes people wanna get in the picture with their dogs but it’s so hard to get your dog settled so today, in four easy steps, I’m gonna teach you just how to do that. Here we go. Let’s get after it. (upbeat music) The first step is to get your dog into whatever position whether that’s a sit, down, stand, whatever you like for the actual photo. I’ll put a link somewhere in the video so you can teach your dog those basic steps but they gotta be able to sit still, stand still, something like that, in order to pose, right? Alright, so that’s a given.The next step though is to begin to build the cue word. Alright so anytime you’re teaching a dog a new thing, you wanna basically get them to do the thing you want them to do kind of naturally without actually adding the word. Once they’re performing the behavior consistently, then you can add the cue word and for us it will be the word look. You can use cheese or whatever you want to be your cue word but for us it’s gonna be look. So the first step is basically to get your dog to stay stationary while you place the treat.Disney, sit, stay. Yes, good boy. So I’m rewarding for him staying still. Disney, sit, stay. Yes, good boy. And then every now and then you actually wanna let your dog go get the treat. He went and got those, the game is still fun for him. Okay, come on. Yes, good boy. Good puppy. Look. So I’m adding the cue word now. Disney, look. Yes, good boy. Alright. Okay go get it. Every now and then let your pup go get it. And the next phase is to actually add the camera. (upbeat music) Four steps. Alright, so build the cue word while you dog is in the sit or in the pose position. Reinforcing the dog to remain still while you actually take the photograph. Add a person with a camera and a treat to reinforce the behavior. And then remove the lure and the treat slowly and every now and then let your dog actually go get the treat from the camera guy or gal so they start to build that positive association with taking a picture.And then soon, you’ll be well on your way to taking first class selfies all day, every day.
