Weave Through Your Legs Dog Trick Overview 

The weave through-your-legs dog trick is from the Dog Training Planner.

You will need a clicker and lots of treats when teaching this trick and remember to have lots of patience with your dog. Once your dog consistently does the figure of eight motion, he or she can move on to learn how to do a walking weave.

The 6 Steps 

If you scroll down a bit, you’ll see that I’ve written out all the steps from the video for you. I know. I know. I really am that nice (lol).

Videos are great if you’re a visual learner! Most people learn dog training drills best by first watching a video tutorial, and then having the written steps available during the training session, so they don’t get confused (Hey, if you want to completely avoid confusion, you might like to get your paws on my Dog Training Planner).

Step 1: Figure Of Eight 

Start with your dog in front of you. Lure them through your legs in a figure of eight. Reward continually to encourage them through the movement. 

Step 2: Reduce The Treats 

Reduce the treats you give as the dog moves through the movement. 

Step 3: Delay The Treat

Get your dog to do a complete figure of eight before giving a reward. Continue to practice until your dog is doing it consistently. 

Step 4: Verbal Marker

Add a verbal marker when your dog completes a figure of 8 by saying, “Good job”. 

Step 5: Multiple Figure Of Eights

Get your dog to do multiple figures of 8’s and reward at random points with treats and the verbal marker. 

Step 6: Walking Weave

Advance to a walking weave.

Loving Leadership

Have a philosophy of loving leadership when training your dog.

Loving Leadership Dog Training Planner

As a loving leader, you should be constantly working on the communication pathways with your dog. At the bare minimum, your dog should also have some basic commands such as the lie-down command, sit command, and stay command.

When your dog knows a few basic dog obedience commands he or she will feel loved because they know what you want and have no anxiety or fear about what they should be doing and when.

Once your dog has a few commands under his or her belt (I mean, collar), practice behaviour dog training, command dog training and tricks dog training regularly to ensure your dog is physically and mentally healthy. As you are probably acutely aware, untrained dogs have a way of taking over the control of a home if not taught otherwise (which can be a nightmare). A trained dog, however, will bring years of doggie love to your household.
