How To Teach Your Dog To Fetch A Beer From The Fridge
One of the coolest, funniest and most popular tricks to teach your dog is how to fetch a beer from the fridge. This trick can also be seen as a practical trick as you don’t have to get up every time you want a new beer. Though it may seem impossible, with a little patience and effort, it can become a reality.
Step 1: Equipment Preparation
Before you start teaching your pup to fetch a beer from the fridge it’s important to have all the necessary materials and equipment.
- Fetching toy or a ball: You’ll need a good toy he already loves or a new ball to get started. It should be lightweight and easy to pick up.
- Dog treats: Training treats not only rewards your pup for the good behaviors but also encourages him to continue the job.
- Fridge: Make sure the door of your fridge is closed at all times during the session.
Step 2: Train Your Dog to Respond to Keywords
Before starting the training, it is important that your dog is able to respond to certain commands. He should be able to recognize the words like “fetch”, “bring”, “get”, “come” and “take”. To do this, start by holding a toy in one of your hands. Then, give him the command “fetch” and show him the toy. When he reaches for the toy, reward him with a treat. Repeat the step several times and he will eventually learn the command.
Step 3: Train Your Dog to Fetch The Toy
Once the basic commands are established, you can move on to teaching your dog to fetch a toy. Show him the toy and give him the command “fetch”. If he goes to pick up the toy, reward him with a treat. If not, gently show him how to pick it up and give him the command “fetch” again.
Once he’s mastered the basics, move on to tougher scenarios. You can even train him to search for the toy in different parts of the room or house. Praise him and reward him with treats for a job well done.
Step 4: Training to Fetch Beer from The Fridge
The next step is to train your dog to fetch beer from the fridge. Start by showing him the toy and giving him the command “fetch”. Then, point to the fridge and trust him to figure out the next step.
Again, reward him with treats when he brings the toy back to you, and even better – if he brings the beer back to you. When he gets it right, reward him with treats and kisses (or a belly rub if he prefers).
Step 5: Perfecting the Trick
Once the pup has figured out how to grab the toy (or beer) and return it to you, the next step is to get him to stay until you take it from him. This is where patience comes into play. Whenever he returns to you with the toy, wait for him to sit down. Every time he does this, reward him with treats and reward him even more if he stays put until you take the toy/beer from him.
Keep repeating this step until your pup has it down pat. Afterwards, you can give him the command “fetch” anytime you want him to get a beer for you.
With the right kind and level of training, any pet can learn to fetch a beer from the fridge. All it takes is some patience, dedication and treats. The longer you practice, the easier it’ll be for your pup to understand the command and perfect the trick.
Once you’re finished with the training and your pup can fetch beer from the fridge, it’s time to show off! Take photos and videos of the trick, and your pup will be famous among all your friends!
