How To Make A DIY Self Filling Water Bowl For Your Dog (Amazing!)Photo –

This video by CrazyRussianHacker is probably one of the most ingenious videos out there! As a dog owner, you tend to think about your dog’s welfare and needs, especially when you’re out of the house. This DIY self-filling water bowl works best to help you with that cause. You won’t have to worry so much about your dog’s water because this can help supply its needs for longer periods of time – up to six hours.

Water is of critical importance for dogs, especially during the summertime when temperatures rise higher than the usual. Being able to provide a self-filling water bowl will not only benefit your dog but it can also help you save time and effort in the long run. This self-filling water bowl might even save dogs’ lives.

The video showcases a step by step process wherein the utilized materials are very easy to find – and so cheap! Basically, you will only need one piece of 2×4, a square shaped wooden base that will serve as the bottom part (make sure the bowl fits on top of this, also you might want to paint it so that it doesn’t get moldy over time), Velcro, a water bottle, nails, and the actual water bowl of your dog. First off, you need to measure the height of the water bottle in relation to the water bowl. Mark this on the 2×4 so that you will know the actual height of the wood needed then cut off the extra part. Nail or screw the wood to the wooden base. You then have to place the Velcro on the plywood, and then put the other side of the Velcro on the water bottle. These will serve as the connecting parts for the vertically positioned items.

Fill the bottle with water and also fill the bowl with water. Position your dog’s water bowl on top of the base. Turn the bottle upside down and stick it to the plywood. After you put them all together, you will notice that the water on the bottle will not flow down because of the pressure from the water on the bowl. Water will only flow down from the bottle once the level of water on the bowl lowers down. This means that as your dog drinks water from the bowl, the water from the bottle will fill the bowl up again.

This innovative water bowl for your dog may serve very beneficial for your dog. Just keep in mind that you should place it in an area with proper room temperature – and out of the sun. You would never want your dog to drink very warm water coming out of a water bottle that has been in the sun.

How To Teach Your Dog To Get You A Beer! (Amazing)

This video by Kristin Crestejo is a great step by step process for teaching your dog to fetch a beer. It also presents how a variety of commands combined together can showcase an amazing trick. This training will take a lot of time, especially with dogs that are new to obedience training. However, the positive reinforcement strategy used in this training will guarantee you that your dog will learn the steps just as long as you “set it up for success”. Kristin, the trainer, utilizes a clicker and dog treats to conduct the training effectively.

The initial step in this training is desensitizing. You want your dog to become familiarized with the can of beer. Keep in mind that at the end of this training, your dog should be able to distinguish this can of beer and get this from inside the fridge. The second step is teaching your dog to fetch or bring the can of beer to you. You can begin with small distances then gradually increase. The third step is opening the fridge door by using the “tug tug tug” command. You can practice this by teaching your dog to tug on a toy at first. Once your dog gets familiarized with the command, you can then move on to the actual fridge door.

Tie a cloth on the fridge’s door handle so that this will be the thing that your dog will tug on. Keep in mind that some doors have strong suction so it’s understandable if your dog can’t easily open it. The key here is to practice over and over again. The fourth step is to teach your dog to close the door. To practice your dog with this step, you need to train it by almost jumping towards you. Place two hands up and let your dog reach it using its two front paws. Move on to the actual fridge door once the dog gets acquainted with this step. The fifth step is the showcase of distance. With a short distance, you can throw a treat in the kitchen as a lure then click once the dog is in the kitchen.

When it comes to opening the door, your dog will need practice in putting its head inside the fridge and getting the actual can of beer. This would be a very challenging part of the process because some dogs will tend to get distracted with the other contents of the fridge. However, with positive reinforcement and proper training, you can still help your dog keep focused and continue with the command.

The end result should be able to showcase the active behaviors altogether. In the video, you can see that Kristina reviewed each of the steps to her dog with the help of a clicker and treats. As soon as your dog performs and masters each step correctly, you can move on to simply commanding the dog to get a beer. The perfect outcome is to see your dog get the beer by using each step of the process the right way. This is definitely one dog trick that will amaze anyone!

How To Teach Your Dog To Give A High Five

This video by Howcast aims to train your dog in learning the high five trick. The essential lesson from this video is to understand the importance of timing. If you want to train your dog right, you should be able to observe perfect timing in terms of giving out both commands and rewards. This video will not only help your dog but it will also serve beneficial for you as a dog owner and trainer.

As you watch the video, everything seems easy because the dog follows the command very quickly. However, there are some dogs that really need a lot of practice and training before nailing a trick. There are even some dogs that are super sensitive in terms of their paws.

The training video showcases two simple steps. The initial one is placing your hand like a cup in front of your dog. Once your dog places its paws on your hand, you can teach it to prolong the position until you provide a release command. This will warm up your dog and get it comfortable placing its paws on your hand. Once the dog feels okay with this, you can move on the next step. Instead of showing a hand with a cup-like position, position your hand with the proper high five look.

The trick will be successful only if your dog performs the high five on your hand. You have to take note that this trick should be fast. Unlike the first step wherein a dog might prolong its position, this step must be completed in a quicker manner because that’s how a high-five really looks. In order to get your dog to perform the action quickly, you need to mention the release command immediately after the trick. In the video, the trainer mentions the word ‘good’ soon after the dog performs the high five. Of course, after this, you need to follow-up with a quick treat as a reward.

As mentioned earlier, timing is critical to help your dog to perform this trick efficiently. You also have to avoid adding extra movements so that your dog will not be confused with the command. The video is rather short but it has all the basic information in order to execute the high five command. The simple steps can be taught by any dog trainer; the important thing is to make sure that your dog enjoys the training sessions. Dogs vary in terms of behavior; this technique might be easy for some dogs but harder for some. Nevertheless, all it takes is proper training, time, and practice.
