Taking a Bow for Weruva Treats in the #TrickOrTreatDogs Giveaway Hop


The Trick or Treat Giveaway Hop is sponsored by Lionel Trains, the Art of AJ, pawTree, Dr. Harvey’s, Jones Natural Chews, Puppy Style Treats, Clear Conscience Pet, Whimzees, Loving Pets and Weruva. All content and opinions expressed are my 100% my own.

I love trick training, I love dog treats (or rather, I love giving them to my dogs) and I am so excited to be participating in the Trick or Treat Giveaway Hop brilliantly conceptualized and perfectly executed by Jessica at Beagles and Bargains and Jodi at Kol's Notes. Just look at all these amazing sponsors! 


THE TRICK: Ruby offers a play-bow all the time so it was one of the first things I put on cue (I use 'bravo' because 'bow' sounds too much like 'down'). Watch the video below to see the steps I used to teach it:



THE TREATS: Ruby and Boca are giving away an awesome prize package from Weruva - I didn't even know they made treats but The Ginger Sisters love their gourmet canned food, especially their Paw Lickin' Chicken. U.S. residents are welcome to enter to win a prize package including Paw Lickin' Chicken or Blue Water Whitefish Treats and Pumpkin Patch Up! Be sure to stop by all the other participating blogs before tomorrow - learning new tricks and entering each treat giveaway. You can go trick or treating from home in your pajamas! Every treat entry will also go toward a chance to win one of three grand prize packages, including a Peanuts Halloween Train from Lionel Trains, a custom Halloween pet portrait from The Art of AJ and a $300 treat package from all of the other sponsors!

    1. Thanks, Amanda! This was a first for us and a great learning experience. I notice in the second part of my video I am not following my own advice of feeding the treat in position :p

    2. Me, always, when trying to film me training: DO AS I SAY AND NOT AS I DO. LOL

    1. Ruby makes trick training look easy...the real challenge would be teaching this trick to Boca! Maybe next year :)

  4. She is so cute! I can't even handle that wagging tail. I tried this awhile ago with Atka, but it was too difficult a position for him to maintain. Mauja's almost full grown so she might have enough body control to learn it now :)

    1. I want to see how Boca does with it - she is much more challenging than Ruby as far as trick training goes.

  5. My dog enjoys trick training but sometimes she gets too distracted by the treats to concentrate.

    1. That's how Boca is, Carolyn! Ruby has just the right amount of food motivation.

  6. Ruby is soooo enthusiastic!!! Great job! I may have to try this with Blueberry.

    1. Sometimes TOO enthusiastic! We had to do some warming up before I could start filming.

  7. Nala is harder to train because she is stubborn so she ends up traing me

  12. Depends on the day but generally likes to train as long as there are treats :)

  13. All 3 of mine do great especially with treats being the reward.

  14. My two babies are pretty trainable - they are very treat motivated!

  15. SO impressive! You are so professional (I am so not). :) Ruby looks lie she is easy to train, too. LOVED hearing the kitty meow in there. My cats eat Weruva and they love the stinky fish more than anything!

  16. Great job, Ruby! That one is definitely on our to do list and I love your cue word! Our two girls don't care much for trick training but our Lab mix Luke LOVES it. That's OK, I'm not sure I'd have time to work with all three of them consistently anyway!

  17. My dogs are stubborn so it takes a while to teach them anything.

  18. Coco is very easy to train, but I haven't taught her that many tricks.

  19. Mr. N is very good at learning tricks. I have him do bow after running through some of his tricks. People laugh.

  20. My dog is such a good boy! He loves learning tricks.

  21. My dog is harder to train. She's just always focused on the treat instead.

  22. Ruby is such and cute, enthusiastic dog :) What a cute trick!

  23. Such a cute trick! Nola thrives with any kind of training, and loves to learn tricks. Pike prefers to play. Olivia is just happy being Olivia, but enjoys simple tricks. Not sure how Lucky will be.

  24. Both my dog, Tonya, and my cat, Duchess, LOVE trick training! Tonya knows around 200 (she's 5 years old), and Duchess knows nearly 20 (she's 4 years old). Thank you for getting together and hosting this fabulous giveaway! It's been a fun 10 days of learning and fun! (We entered under an "Amie De" Facebook account)

  25. My dogs LOVE to learn tricks. They go nuts when the clicker comes out.

  26. My dog was an adult when I adopted her. She seems to know just one trick- rolling over.

  27. My dogs are not too easy to train. If I could get them one-on-one I think it would be easier because they get distracted by the treats and each other.
