Best ‘Bang Your Dead’ Ever!

Just saw this video on youtube and LOVE this ‘Bang Your Dead’ routine.

>Note: This is not MY dog, just a cute video I found.

However… watching this routine got me to realizing that many of you might be interested in learning how to teach your dog the part of the routine where the dog stumbles, or maybe adding a “YELP!” right after he is ‘fake shot’.

Check out the video to see what I mean:

Would You Like To Learn LOTS Of Advanced Dog Tricks Like This?

If so, I’m considering putting together a fully illustrated course on Advanced trick training to show you how to train your dog to do many advanced tricks… just like the ones in this video.

However I only want to put in the effort to hire the illustrators and do a print run if it is something you’re interested in.

>NOTE: My experience with teaching animal tricks is that people like to have a printed, illustrated manual instead of videos.  They are easier to move around with you, or take outside and re-read for clarification.  Plus they also work if your family is watching another show while you want to train.

So if you would be interested in an Advanced Trick training product like this, please leave a comment below indicating so.  You could also leave suggestions for the types of tricks you’d like to see as well.

We here at TheDogTrainingSecret.com know quite a bit about trick training that we’ve never shared before, and think it would be a fun product to produce for you if you’re interested.

Please let me know either way with a comment below.

    Chet Reply:

    well I’m not expert on that yet either, but my new Golden Ginger is from a hunting line and I am getting started with bird hunting.

    We have a pond on our property that geese were laying eggs in last year so I’m excited to see what kinds of bird hunting can be done back there.

    So maybe my new interest in hunting will lead me towards putting out some gun dog stuff at some point, or working with a gun dog expert to do so.

    Hi Chet,
    We would be seriously interested in teaching our 2 17 month old Goldens (Bam Bam & Ginger) some cool tricks. I also think it would help to stimulate their minds some and releive some of the boredom that they seem to be experiencing. I look forward to your information!

    hi Chet, The ‘shoot’ trick is funny, but still a bit violent in nature… I would love to have you put together detailed training for advanced tricks..here’s a couple of ideas that I’ve seen one dog perform: picking up all the toys at the end of the day-taking to the toy box. (in a house with 7 dogs, that’s a big job!) also: climbing into a box- big dog, smaller box- it’s very funny to see; and with a command- ‘go pack for your trip’- dog climbs into suitcase and pulls the lid down! LOL thanks for all of your help with training. My 4month old dog really did learn ‘go to your mat’ just like you teach in your video… wow!!

    If you have my course you need to go through the potty section again as I do NOT like pee pads, very counterproductive.

    I’d love a training video on tricks! I wish you could of helped me with my 2 1/2 year old Lab. We had to put her down. She was aggressive to people and animals, even us at times. We worked with a behaviorist and she said she would never be safe with others. She thought we could tough it out though. Seeing Maggie in that state and the safety factor we did it. I feel horrible about it. It’s not the same as putting a terminally ill pet out of its misery. She was so young it is just awful. I cry all the time. I’m afraid to get another puppy ever again. We still have a 13 and 5 year old, both Labs, that are so loving and fun to train. Have fun with your children and puppy–I know you will. So sorry about Bauer. Take care. Jen

    [Reply]

    Chet Reply:

    yeah, serious aggression is just one of those things that is very tough for me to help you with via the internet once it’s already a problem.

    Preventing it is something I think we help a lot of people do, but not curing already existing issues.

    If we have not refunded you for that, or you’d like another product in exchange for any new dog or situation you have, please email us so we can take care of you.

    [Reply]

    Jenina Rose Reply:

    Jennifer,

    So sorry to hear about your Lab. There are ways to work this out but it would need to be done by a professional who has the knowledge. The school I went to to become a Professional Dog trainer had us work with problem dogs such as dog and people aggression. Sometimes we can work it out and sometimes not.
    Unfortunately there are just bad dogs that come out of a breeding for some reason or another. Just like there are bad people, some can be helped through counseling and others spend life in prison.
    Its never easy to put a dog down especially when they are young. I unfortunately had to do the same with a German Sheperd at 14mths for medical reasons.
    My condolences.

  17. Klaudia Schmidt says:

    Hi Chet,
    I would love to get instructions to teach my puppy some tricks. I have done a few things with a couple of cats like “play the big tiger” (standing on the hind legs and moving the front legs high over the head), put the front leg in my hand when I say “good morning”, rolling over and some more.

    I think apart from the limping and play dead, which you mentioned, it could be quite funny to train her to wave good-bye to visitors leaving the house (sit, lift the front paw and move it up and down).

    At the moment, we are however still on the basics. She gives me a hard time trying to calm her down. She gets extremely excited, when she sees another dog, a cat, a person, anything alive. And then she starts running in circles, jumping up and down. She gets so out of control that she even stumbles over her own paws and lands flat on her face …. which does not stop her getting up and continuing her dance of joy.

    Thanks for your great programs and the blog, which I really enjoy reading

    WE taught our old boy to do that trick, but he would pause, look very sad and then flop to the floor…if he continued to wag his tail we’d shoot him again,and tell him that dead dogs don’t wag their tails…and it would slowly stop like the beating heart after being shot. Smartest dog in the world, had to put him down in March, miss him dearly.

    I love the trick. I like trick training. I have one problem. I have one dog that gains weight to easy. The vet had me put him on a diet. Was starving when I found him. Trick training with food is not a good way to train him. Other suggestions, for training would be helpful. I also find the videos helpful.

  21. Sven H Hansen says:

    Hi thanks for your tricks.
    I train my dog in the National guard in Denmark, as a soldier – some of the training methods are 15 years old – so I will like some help to do some things more up to date:

    I need to train my dog, so when I give him a hand signal or a touch then he move from my left side leg, backwards and in between my legs and if I kneel down he should lay flat – that is used if I am under attack when I move then he should move in between my leg until he gets a signal to go back ( backwards) to my left side.
    he need to pass in and out from my behind so he do not get in the way for the gun og hit by shooting fire.

Also I was so sorry to hear about your last dog and thought I should mention that I watched something on GMOs (genetically modified organisns) recently and thought of your dog as bloat is one of the side effects so look out for dog foods that contain them.

    YES, YES, YES!!! Please post instructions for “bang, bang, you’re dead”. I am graduating my second student this evening. I have been certified since May of this year and training since August and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! It seems like second nature (I spent my life in the printing industry), never thinking anything could give me as much pleasure, but being with the dogs has awakened my reason for living! I am training at Unleashed by PETCO, but learned my training thru Animal Behavior College and the SSPCA in Sacramento. You gotta love it when the dogs listen to you! I’ve had a few barkers, but I’ve been successful in having quiet classes. I would love to give this trick as the (something extra) when my students graduate.

Now we are trying Canine Freestyle which encourages tricks in the routines. I would love to teach the dogs to pick up their toys and put them in a basket. My problem with showing in the obedience Open Class, so that my shelties will not return the dumbbell. They will chase after it, but once they have it they give me a look of disdane like “we are not retrievers!” PS I refuse to do the ear pinch, I imagine that is your opinion also.

    I would love to teach my dog advanced tricks. She does bang your’re dead and even throws her head back, She doesn’t limp and fall like in the video..that is cute. She bows, crawls, spins, gets me my shoes,picks up things that I drop,( leave it…touch once…touch again then when I say ok can take food.) rings the bell, smells the flowers, speaks, howls, up, down, kisss, touch objects and people and many more so I don’t know how much more she can do. I do want to teach her to limp like she is hurt and walk my little dog on the leash, turn lights on/off, open close cabints and doors (service type working tricks) and do more fun tricks… she enjoys learning new tricks and it’s fun for everyone.
    sincerely,
    Luann

    Sounds great! After teaching some basic tricks & a few extras, I ran out of creative ideas & knowledge of how to go further. I did teach my 2 Maltese to give each other a kiss, and one knows how to “say your prayers” by crouching down on her front legs with her butt staying up in the air, so she looks like she’s praying. Everybody loves that one! They love learning new things & of course getting treats and praise. It’s fun for all of us. So…yes, bring it on!

    Many years ago I had an exceptionally intelligent Sheltie who was capable of learning any trick out there.

    I now have a 3 1/2 yr. old female Toy Poodle who has the attention span of a fly and the ability to put the “Energizer Bunny” to shame! Do you think it’s possible to teach her ANY tricks?

    Would SO MUCH appreciate your comments and expertise!

    Thanks so much…

    [Reply]

    Chet Reply:

    I think it’s pretty rare you can’t teach a dog to do tricks. But one thing I’ve learned from my background which is bird training is that some animals like some types of tricks.

    With birds, some really like to fly, while others like to walk on the ground. It was best to match the tricks to what they normally liked to do.

    So not knowing anything about your dog, I think as a worst case you could come up with tricks that fit her energy level… ie. really rapid spins, jumping, retrieves and things that let her do what she wants to do… burn off energy.

    But there are other things too, like maybe needing to think of ways to burn off more of that energy then you are currently doing… along with attention strategies.

    I would find it very odd if your dog couldn’t learn tricks. It most likely needs to be a simple change of how you work with her

    [Reply]

    Kelly Reply:

    I agree with matching the trick to the dog! I have a Miniature Australian Shepard that hops off all four feet! He reminds me of a kangaroo!! I simply had him sit in front of me on command and then I would jump and he would jump!! Something he already did, but impressive to others who did not know that is what he would do normally! 🙂
    I love tricks and would love to work on more!

    ~ limp (three leg walk)
    ~ backwards walking in a circle around me
    ~ side stepping

    some tricks i have already trained my dogs to do which would be interesting for others is:

    ~ walking on back legs
    ~ speaking quietly and loudly
    ~ clapping

    Hi Chet,
    I would love to get my 17 week old puppy (“Charlie” an Australian Shepherd)to do the Bang your dead trick.

    I started training him to ring the bell to go outside on Saturday and on Monday night, he rang the bell (quite insistently) to go out to go potty.

    He is such a smart puppy and I am so proud of the progress he has made since we got him at 8 weeks old. Now, if I can just get him out of the “jumping up” on people thing.

    Your training material has been invaluable in achieving results.

    Yes please Chet. My lab/dalmatian cross is full of beans and just loves to learn new tricks but I run out of ideas and knowledge of how to break things down into simple steps. She’s got loads of the basic and fun tricks but I’d love to teach her more as I find that sometimes the ‘tricks’ can come in really handy to control or direct her in a situation when we’re out on a walk or on the bike. She’s so quick to pick things up and it tires her out mentally as well, which helps to keep her happy and calm.

    I’m still working with my dog with the following commands: heel, sit, stay, come, NO, STOP, and a lot of the other basics. I have discovered my dog learns very quickly with treat rewards and I’ve just begun using a clicker. While the tricks are cute, the time it takes to work with my dog just to teach him the basics is all I’m interested in doing. Maybe down the road, both he and I will need to step it up a notch to avoid boredom. Thanks for all you do.

    I would love to teach my dog advanced tricks!!! I think i could teach him the play dead rolling over part, It’s just he does this thing where he would do the trick (rolling on his side) but then he would jump right back up! ruining the whole affect unless you imagined he instantly comes back from the dead as a zombie. He does that with all his tricks! sits then instantly jumps back up
    an dances, tries to shake, lays down, rolls over, ect. he won’t listen to ME. He TOTALY respects me as alpha. this makes it very hard for me during traing sessions because if using treats he just thinks “treats got to get that treat” and he’ll do all his tricks in one order if he still dosen’t get the treat after doing his tricks then he will do them all again in a diffrent order. frustrating!!

    Sure! That sounds like a “fun” way to play around.(pretending to shoot one’s dog may not sound fun to some folks but we know it’s just pretend) We’d give it a try with Clancy. As soon as he stops stealing things to hide and chew on. He’s a 6 mo.old cockapoo. 🙂

    [Reply]

    Peter and Lorynne Reply:

    Charlotte, don’t give upon your Chow. They are much smarter than they let on. We bred rough and smooth coat Chows in Perth, Australia for some years and always found them very capable of obedience training and tricks; come, sit, stay, wait, shake hands, lay down (drop) heel, return, catch, up, down, inside, outside, etc. but it can take a lot of patience and perseverance because of their independent nature. Then even when they are perfectly trained, sometimes they’ll look at you as if to say, “Why would I want to do that? I’m happy smelling this flower!” We didn’t do much in the way of advanced tricks, but our current bitch does all the basics including rollover. A previous bitch was perfectly trained to heel off leash or to walk between us on command. We have also always taught our dogs a command to stop them barking, especially in the night, once I have established the threat they perceived had gone. We always treat their bark as a potentially genuine threat (Chows don’t bark for nothing.) then advise them “It’s OK!” They seem to feel respected and respect you for taking the lead in checking for danger, and are silent immediately.
    On that point of how to choose commands, I don’t believe any dog generally knows the difference between our words until they are taught to associate them with something. So although I could say, “Quiet!” or “Shut up!” it’s nicer for us humans to hear “It’s OK!” Likewise people often tell their dogs to “Move!” or “Get out of the way!” whereas we say “Excuse me!” in a friendly voice and they always move immediately!
    Just be loving, consistent and persevere.

    Hi Chet,

    We had to put down our cocker 5 yrs ago because of uncontrollable internal bleeding. We were devistated and didn’t get another dog for 3 years.I fell in love with a puppies picture on the internet and bought her sight unseen.(My sister was driving up for a visit & passing right near the breeders, who agreed to meet her at the interstate.

    I have had dogs my whole life and never had a problem training any of them.
    This puppy was sweet and adorable, but I couldn’t housebreak her. She would pee or mess in her crate at night, no matter how often she was taken out the night before. You can imagine the messes I had to clean up and how bad her fur smelled after laying in that all night. I even spent a fortune on dog trainers and none of them ever met a dog who would mess in their bed. They couldn’t help with the problem and I finally gave the dog to one of the trainers two years ago.

    Now I am wanting another dog and want to get a rescue dog, or be a foster “Mom” for the local rescue mission here. I would love to be able to train a dog with some tricks, but wonder if you know of a breed of dog that is easiest to train? I need to have a small dog (under 25 lbs)as I am getting to the age that I couldn’t handle a large dog (I am 76 yrs, young).

CAN’T YOU TEACH THEM SOMETHING THAT SHOWS AFFECTION ?? THERE ARE SO MANY ANIMALS THAT ARE ABUSED, KICKED, STARVED, THREATENED, OR MADE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM PEOPLE OR OTHER DOGS . IT’S HORRIBLE. HOW DOES A PET OWNER WHO “SUPPOSEDLY” LOVES HIS /HER DOG, DERIVE ANY KIND OF JOY OR ENTERTAINMENT FROM THIS TRICK?? DOES IT GIVE THE OWNER A SENSE OF POWER ?? IT’S ALSO NOT GOOD FOR CHILDREN TO SEE . IT SHOWS THAT VIOLENCE IS CUTE, FUNNY , ENTERTAINING, TOLERATED. THEN -THEY- WILL TREAT THE DOG LIKE THAT. I KNOW IS IS JUST SUPPOSED TO BE FUN, BUT , IS IT?? I DON’T THINK SO. I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE TAUGHT MY DOG A TRICK LIKE THAT, AND ESPECIALLY WITH KIDS AROUND. SORRY, BUT THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER FUN TRICKS TO TEACH YOUR PET, THAT IS JUST FUN, NOT CRUEL. IT IS JUST PLAIN MEAN. GET RID OF THE EGOS .

    Great idea. Would love to learn how to teach praying at night and grace at mealtime. Had a Cairin Terrier/Poodle that was the hit of all that visited when he would “stalk” (just like a large cat, one paw then the next) the length of our long hallway, eyes fixed on a tennis ball. He would take a long time to get to us as it was true stalking. It was natural for him, we did not teach him but encouraged once we saw the behavior. Trick by trick would be best as some tricks I think are specific to type and size of dog so would like only the ones that fit our dog.

  127. My 2 yr old Smooth Collie/German Shepherd dog is super smart, very loving,learns quickly, loves and excells in agility. Has completed all obedience classes and has his Good Citizen Certificate. He was housebroken at 3 months old and had only 2 accidents in that time. He can ring the bell to go out, crawl, spin, leave it, drop it, backup, pray, heel,rollover, sit, stay, watch me, lay down, find hidden treats under pots and comes when called. I would love to have him learn new tricks as he enjoys learning new things. He unfortunately has learned to open all the doors by himself just like our Maine Coon cat! We have levers instead of knobs. Fortunately the 7 yr old yellow lab hasn’t learned that from him yet! She’s slower to learn. LOL
    Just love your techniques; I have used lo-fat string cheese and small pieces of chicken franks as rewards. I am so proud of him; never had a dog so smart except for my Golden Retreiver years ago and true, it’s a lot of work but worth it.

  139. Looks like your request for teaching tricks is unanimous. Strickly obedience requires effort from time to time so that it does not get boring for handler as well as dog. Teaching tricks is infact obedience training, but more intertaining, so a smattering of both will be motivating for both trainer and dog.

    I don’t do the “shoot” trick since I do many demos in schools and with children.I turn the trick into another type of cue and ask the questions “would you rather be a dead dog or….”(fill in the blank – go to another school or whatever).

    Hi Chet,

    I’d be interested in any tricks that may enhance my dog’s life, my GSD already knows several such as “dead dog” and retrieving a hankie from my pocket when I sneeze but would love to know more..

    I’m very interested in teaching some of these tricks. My irish already closes the door, shakes hands, rolls over and I think that’s pretty cool. We just enjoy playing together.

    I would love our puppy Sandy can do this trick. She was rescue from the streets after being hit by a car. After two surgeries, she is getting well so fast. She is still learning the basics, and is very obedient. Hope to hear more tricks from you soon!

    Hi Chet my Rhodesian ridgeback is freakn awesome and that is thanks to some of your methods I gentle him never a harsh word stern look is all he needs anyways. He has the basics like sit stay down come wait drop it, he will even drop food after chewing it if I ask him to drop it! He’s amazing I work with him daily he’s 18 mths now and I would love to give him some more new skills like shut a door he can push open but not closed and to pull open would be great that way he can close the door after he barges in haha the bang trick is great the simple drop after bang is not interesting but the yellp you speak of with the stumble sounds great he even has toilet time meanin he won’t potty until I say it’s ok in public that way he’s not dumping his load where ever, he does tell me though in a suttle way he needs to go so I can take him away from people, we are in tune so to say, but thats because you get what you give with our dog friends and some, anyways yes for sure I would love to give my boy some new skills

    Not meaning to brag or be sarcastic but I taught my Rat Terrier to do that a long time ago. She will even kick and stretch out stiff! Another among the many cool tricks she does is pick up socks off the floor and take them to whoever they belong too!

    Hi Chet, I would love to teach my Sassy new tricks. She is a 2yr old jackapoo. I taught her how to stand on her back feet and do spins for a treat. it only took 20 nmins for her to learn it. Now she does it without the treat. She is a real smart dog. Loved to teach her more and she would love it too because she loves to play and get lots of attention.

    My two 7mth old malt x can already do Bang, but would love to teach them the stagger part of it. They can drop, roll over, beg, paw, go to the mat when told. Some dancing routine would be fun to teach them or any other dog tricks, they love it.

    Hi Chet,

    I would be very interested in learning more advanced dog training tricks. My dog Rusty is very smart and gets bored easily. A more advanced training might be just the ticket.

    Thanks

    Hello Chet,
    First, let me ask you a question,
    Is this a hands-off training or?
    if yes, then i would like to learn how to teach dogs tricks.

    [Reply]

    Chet Reply:

    yes, this is an example of one of the ways to train your dog in what I call, the Hands Off way… and by hands off we are not physically manipulating or punishing them. Instead we are manipulating in a postivie way their emotional desires and urges, and creating environments for them that make them easier to deal with.

    As for tricks, you’re in luck, I just got the rough draft of our tricks course in my hands and its looking good.

    Look for its release sometime in december.

    Hello Chet.

    Words can’t express how awed I am at the phenomenal amount of information you pass on in an easy to understand and implement fashion.

    Thanks now, but thanks many times over once we find our new family member.

    I plan on making training our puppy / dog (not sure which way to go) a real study and commitment using your lessons.

    Showing off your well-behaved dog is sooooo fun and what a daily reward for everyone in contact with your pet.

    Yes, I would definately be interested in advanced training (of me) to allow my dog to be all he/she wants to be, and hopefully it’s mutual as we both learn new tricks.

    Any suggestions for training a dog to like to go boating (19″ Sea Ray)? Is type, size, or coat an issue?

    Thanks for any help or referrals to information on this issue.

    — Suzanne

    Just like some people have sea sickness, some dogs also suffer from it.

    Ask your vet for some dramamine dosage just in case and go on short trips at first.
