On Your Mark
On Your Mark is a cute trick, a nice exercise in self-control and a fun way to get a dog excited about play
(as if you dog needed a reason, right?)
There are three parts to the trick. Teach each part a little at a time–several few days on one part until your dog has it down pat.
- On Your Mark. Teach your dog to lie down when you say “On your mark.”
- Get Set. Here you want your dog to do what is called a “play bow”. Use training exercises like Take A Bow to teach this.
- Go. This is pretty easy. As soon as you say it, start running.
This is a fine trick incorporate at the beginning of other games too.
