Contributed by Terri Elkins, Owner / Trainer -

Note from from CP Blogger: We would like to thank Terri Elkins for allowing us to post her weekly taming tips on our blog. Her training facility is located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Each week we'll share a Taming Tip for you, your family and friends to do with your dog(s)! These tips will help teach your dog real world manners in a fun way. Leave us a comment and tell us how it went!

Taming Tip #12:

Help your dog be polite and friendly this week! Stand or sit in front of your dog and hold your hand towards his nose as if giving a treat, when your dog's nose touches your hand to investigate, say "hello" then click and treat! Put your hand behind your back and repeat. Everytime your dog's nose touches your hand, give him a reward and cue "hello". Practice with friends and family members. After your dog sits and says "hello" he can have a treat and be petted!! Have fun!!
