Teach Your Dog to Fetch Your Slippers

Mon, October 29, 2012

Teach your dog to fetch you shoes or slippers with this easy to master trick. Practice this trick 4-6 times per session and in a few weeks your dog will be able to fetch your slippers for you when your feet are cold! This trick builds on the basic "fetch" trick.

  • 1

    In an empty room or area, please a slipper a short distance away from your dog and ask him to "fetch" the slipper and bring it to you. Reward with a treat. Practice this until your dog is bringing you the slipper when you say "fetch slipper" or "fetch shoe."

    Once you dog has mastered this in one room, place the slipper in a different room, or out of site, and ask your dog to fetch it for you. Reward with a treat.

    Repeat with a different pair of shoes. Your dog will learn to bring you any pair of shoes that smells like your feet.
