How to Turn Bad Habits Into Dog Tricks

We all have bad habits; even are seemingly perfect dogs do. Maybe it’s jumping at a house guest. Maybe it’s barking at the door bell ringing. Maybe it’s digging holes. Or maybe it’s constantly stealing socks. I bet you they are there. And if not… want to trade dogs? Just kidding!

Luna’s two biggest vices are barking at unattended food (Hey, you gonna eat that?) and jumping when she is overly excited. I love my little Beagle mix, but I don’t love when she jumps up and steals a slice of pizza out of a house guest’s hand (True story).

Luna gets a little goofy during a dog trick training session.

I fought back against her bad habits, but associating them with trick commands.

Why would you want to turn bad habits into tricks? They are bad after all, right?

First, teaching a dog a new trick based on something they naturally do is about 10 thousand times easier than training something that is completely brand new. Not all dogs need to be super tricksters, but it’s not a bad idea to build a small arsenal of tricks for your dog.

Practicing (and nailing) dog tricks is a good relationship building activity and great confidence booster for dogs. Both of these things are SUPER helpful if you happen to be combating separation anxiety.

Second, by associating a normally unacceptable behavior with a command you are providing your dog an outlet to still do the behavior, but only when you are ready for it. It also opens up the door for an opposite command such as “Quiet” or “Off”.

So that’s why I taught a Beagle “Speak”.

Since learning this trick, Luna barks a lot less frequently at my half eaten dinner plate. She also actually listens when I ask her to be quiet. But a dog still has to bark sometimes, so we do it for treats and when I can’t find her (because I accidentally locked her out of the bedroom).

For her jumping, we taught Luna “High Five” and “Gimme Ten”. It still gives her an outlet to exhibit excitement, but by channeling her energy into these tricks, she jumps only when I’m not holding a slice of pizza and am ready for it. Another good trick option for jumping is “Touch“.

To turn a bad habit into a dog trick, try identifying the triggers or situations that cause your dog to exhibit the behavior. Create an isolated version of the situation (leave a small bit of food out, ring the door bell) that you have complete control over. When your dog performs the desired behavior, show a hand signal and say a verbal command that you want to associate with that behavior. Then praise, praise, praise.

Now you’ve turned what would normally be a bad experience into a positive one!

Luna prepares for a "High Five" during the Trick or Treat Giveaway Hop!

Be patient. It won’t happen right away and may take many small training sessions until you get it right. Repetition and positive reinforcement (through treats and praise) will help them recognize the behavior and repeat it on their own without the old trigger.

Keep training sessions small and always end on a positive note. If you notice your dog is starting to get tired or frustrated, then switch over to a trick you know they will get and reward!

Don’t forget to revisit old tricks often to keep them fresh!

And Now For the Giveaway Treat!

This year we have three great prize packs and each one is stocked full of super high quality, delicious dog treats (at least according to Ralph and Luna). Both Caru and Nature’s Logic have graciously provided us with high reward meaty nuggets that will be sure to get your dog’s attention.

Plus, The Honest Kitchen are sponsoring a prize pack with a wide assortment of treats including Quickies, which are my favorite low-calorie, super smelly training treat to use with both Luna and Ralph!

And it doesn’t even end there! Our Grand Prize is a $300 Gift Card to PetSmart. Just imagine all the treats THAT could buy.

    I used a similar method, works really well.

    • beaglesbargains

      That’s great to hear!

  • April Hurley

    I think teaching your dog what you WANT him/her to do is such a great way to redirect them to doing something positive and engaging. Thank you for these great tips and ideas!

    • beaglesbargains

      Absolutely agree!

  • Linda

    We haven’t taught my dog to speak yet but should!

    • beaglesbargains

      Definitely! Let us know how it goes!

  • Rachel Davis

    she does “speak” sometimes and we always get so excited when she does because it’s so cute but i don’t think she knows the command “speak”

    • beaglesbargains

      Aww too cute!

  • Luna can have my pizza – she is too cute! Ruby sort of knows speak, but it’s not consistent – thanks for the inspiration to keep practicing!

    • beaglesbargains

      Luna is funny. She’ll only do it if you have a treat in your hand or she’s lost. It’s like she knows the command, but also knows not to do it unless it’s really necessary.

  • Linda Szymoniak

    I’ve been trying to get my three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds to speak on command, but so far – no luck. They are barkers and I read that teaching them to speak on command is a good way to stop that. I’ll have to try your tips, since so far we’ve had no luck. Luna is just so cute!

    • beaglesbargains

      It’s definitely helped for us! Keep practicing!

  • Theresa Spaid

    Shunta and my new furbaby Bandit know how to sit. Shunta shakes hands also.

  • Candice

    One of my dogs can speak. They can both sit, shake, lay down, and (sometimes) roll over too. πŸ™‚

  • Elena

    My dog doesn’t speak, but he can shake hands (or paws)

  • Amy Heffernan

    Nope mine does not speak but he can fetch my slippers! πŸ™‚

  • Amanda Patterson

    Mine doesn’t do speak but she does do high-five! We have never used the idea of turning a bad behavior into a trick though

  • Jen Longhurst

    Jasper Zen knows speak and jump! Along with 100 more tricks!

  • Caitlyn Orr

    Mine doesn’t know speak but it would be a great trick to teach him since he talks so much anyways.

  • Natalie

    My dog knows how to high five but does not know how to jump or speak yet. We put our hand out and say “shake”.

  • Melissa S

    These are great tips. I have a very stubborn 9 month old chihuahua. She knows how to sit but is resistant to any other tricks.

  • So many fun ideas for tricks! I can’t wait to read more!

  • Heather W

    What a great reason to teach speak. I had always wondered why to teach that command. Ours doesn’t speak, but she is amazing with “Come.” I have never used this method before, but it sounds like a great way to put a spin on a “bad habit.” We’ve taught our skills with treats and positive reinforcement.

  • Cheryl Chervitz

    My two boys, Junebug and Cain, don’t speak, but they can sit and shake.

  • Allison Hoffman

    My Malamute howls when told to speak πŸ™‚

    • beaglesbargains

      Aw! I haven’t been able to get Luna to howl on command yet. It’s a work in progress!

  • Pingback: Trick or Treat Giveaway Hop | Heart Like a Dog()

  • Ellie

    she will speak if we howl at her!

  • Emily Endrizzi

    The only tricks my dogs know is sit. I’m motivated to work on turning some of their bad behaviors into tricks now, though!

  • Layla very seldom makes a sound and when she does its a moan to get under the covers with me

  • SGilbert

    Schooner is our talker and we call it back talking..Schooner say Nooooo! All the time so I say Mama say Mama….not working!

    • beaglesbargains

      Luna is also know to do a bit of back talking as well πŸ˜‰

  • sandy weinstein

    my oldest knows lots of tricks, she was a very fast learner, the 2 younger girls know a few, it takes time and being consistent to train to do tricks. my oldest could prance, roll over and play dead, dance, shake, etc. the 2 younger girls just do the normal ones, except the youngest can talk and curl up her lip

  • Jordan

    My dog will speak!

  • Mary

    My dog definitely barks but doesn’t know the speak command yet…

  • Linda

    Luna is so cute! I must try this soon with my two barkers!!! Hope it works..thanks!

  • Starla

    What a cutie and how hilarious that Luna barks at unattended food! My big baby, Bentley does know a few tricks. He can speak and he shakes of course, can even play dead!

  • Vondrook4

    My dog barks at any noise, so it may be difficult since she get’s so defensive, but it’s worth a try!

  • Amy A

    One of my previous dog barked at unattended food my current two just stare like the can will the food to fall on the floor. Nala barks at everything too so maybe speak will a good command for her now Cody only barks when Nala barks so it would probably be a chain reaction.

  • Carolyn

    My dog doesn’t know this trick. However, she is very quiet & not a barker. She will give a single warning bark if UPS knocks on the door. But I can go days or weeks without hearing her bark.

  • Mary W

    My dogs do not know any tricks. I like the video you made. Luna is a sweetie!

  • Tenacious Little Terrier

    I just taught this to Mr. N recently! It was hard because he doesn’t bark much.

  • Jessica B Gibson

    Ossian knows how to speak on command. However he does not know how to “hush” on command! once he starts talking…he just keeps talking.

  • Susan Pertierra

    The only dog I trained was for a 4H project many, many years ago, but I used the same repetition, praise and treat method. I have trained my cats though to fetch and jump up on something with the word Up.

  • brandi hawn

    my dog loves to do this trick. we didn’t teach it to him really he’s just always done it πŸ™‚

  • Debbi Horseman Powers

    I trained my Labs to sit and wait for their pizza crust and to not go out an open door. My new Golden has learned about the open door but not the pizza yet.

  • Anne-Marie Tvete

    Would love to try to use this to redirect him when he barks when someone knocks at the door He is a rescue and barks at most unusual noises.

  • Amanda Yantos

    I love that first picture of Luna, so cute! I’ve kind of taught Khloee to speak because she doesn’t bark often and when she does, it’s super cute LOL.

  • Rust

    Our dog doesn’t know this trick.

  • Patricia Brousseau Caradonna

    Great article. My dog does not speak on command. She does turn around in circles when we ask her if she wants to go out and she gives a few barks too!

  • steve weber

    My dog knows one trick and one trick only… how to sleep. lol.

  • alicia szemon

    Your dog is so cute! My dog does the same thing: barks too much and gets too excited and jumps on people. I did the exact thing you did. I taught my dog to speak. It is so funny! My dog is boxer/beagle mix(:

    • beaglesbargains

      Nice! And yay for beagle mixes!!

  • LyricInTime2803

    No my dogs don’t know speak (though they know a lot of other tricks!)

    • beaglesbargains

      Oh which ones?!

      • LyricInTime2803

        They know the usual sit, shake, lie down. They spin, back up, wave, high five, dance, touch, play dead. They can close doors, and push buttons. They know leave it very well, which isn’t normally a trick, but I can line their feet while laying down with treats and they’ll leave it till released. Wager will perch on just about anything. Shiloh can put his toys away, and can even ” go bowling”- I had a set of kids bowling pins, and taught him to push a ball with his nose to knock them down. They both enjoy learning new tricks, though they’ve taken a background to “sports” training. Shiloh competes in agility, and Wager will be ready to compete soon. They both also train in nosework, herding, and barn hunt (Shiloh has competed in barnhunt, and has his novice title). I’d like to get them into Rally. Shiloh especially would do well in that since he can already do most of the exercises, but he’s so excited that he can’t do them without barking. Maybe learning to speak will help!

  • Steven Shepherds

    My older dogs knows the tricks but I still need to teach them to my younger dog. Especially the speak trick, since she likes to bark quite a bit. lol

  • Will G

    My dog does not.

  • Annamarie Voss

    He does not know this trick, his only tricks are sit, shake and get your pillow.

  • Annabellainla

    My dogs don’t know any tricks

  • Carol Roberts clark

    my dog doesnt know this one i wish he did

  • Daniel Scott

    My dog rarely barks so it is hard to teach him the speak command.

  • aecharlebois

    My 7 year old golden does NOT bark, thankfully. Can’t stand when a dog barks nonstop. If he barks, it’s usually because of people that aren’t supposed to be near our house. I wouldn’t ever teach him “speak” or any dog for that matter. Unless it actually helped to curb the random barking. Gavan, my golden, does however know shake and gimme five.

    • beaglesbargains

      Well.. it has been very helpful for us.

  • Molly Pitcher

    One of my dogs can bark on command and I regret teaching him this.

  • Maryann Royster

    both of my pups speak, they were barking anyway, we said speak and shoved a treat in their mouth.

  • Aaron

    Rolly knows no tricks. He is my dumb dumb friend.

  • I’m entering to win the gift card for my sister, who is a cat lady! I’m
    not sure her cats know any tricks, beyond driving her crazy.

  • Jan K, Wag N Woof Pets

    Speak is something I have definitely wanted to work on, but haven’t gotten to yet.
    Hmmm…Luke’s worst habit is counter surfing, which we’ve never really worked on either, other than saying “off” which has done virtually no good. I like this approach and will have to give it a try.

  • Christine Aiello

    Coco knows high five, but I can’t get her to give me ten. I’ve tried many times. She doesn’t know speak either. I need to try working on that one.

    • beaglesbargains

      Luna is a jumper, so I think that’s why gimme ten works! That’s what I built off of at least.

  • Rachel Griesmer

    My dog doesn’t know any tricks. We’ve worked with her in the past but she just doesn’t get it.

  • Barrie

    I love the idea of turning an undesirable behavior into a command to lessen the behavior one doesn’t like! Our dog is praised when he barks but we can’t get him to bark on command!

  • Jenn Gren

    My dog knows ‘speak’ and also ‘whisper’ where she barks softly πŸ™‚

    • beaglesbargains

      Oh that sounds too cute!

  • I love the idea of starting from a bad behavior. Charlie has occasional issues with barking when he goes outside and jumping on new guests, but I never thought about trying to isolate the situation to turn the actions into a trick. Love these photos of Luna by the way!

  • usnamom2014

    My shelties know a lot of tricks but not this one,

  • Jodi

    Love how excited she gets when you ask her to speak. I wish Delilah would just bark at our food, we could never set a plate down on a coffee table, that girl would gobble it right up!

    • beaglesbargains

      I think she barks because she has an internal struggle. She really really wants to eat the food, but knows she isn’t supposed to.

  • Mallory H.

    They do not know – although they do it often without an order πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • beaglesbargains

      Fair enough πŸ™‚

  • My dog doesn’t know any tricks. She’s a diva and just says why bother.

  • Thomas Murphy

    My dog does not know the trick.

  • No, my dogs do not know this trick. However, my older girl does speak on her own when she really wants something like going outside, feed me, give me a treat. She sounds like this: arrrwowww

  • Jamie Williams

    My doggy does know this trick but I taught it a little differently.

  • lori b

    no my pooch does not know this trick

  • michelle tremblett

    Our boy doesn’t know this trick, He just has no interest in entertaining us πŸ™‚

  • Wendi Watson

    WHEN you say go for a walk she will go get her leash

  • Kelly Tupick

    No my dog does not know this trick, i tried but could never get her to do it on command.

  • Christy Gordon-Graham

    We taught our pup how to turn a bad habit into a trick and now she doesnt jump up on ppl anymore πŸ™‚

  • EdyeNicolesMakeup

    My Labrador used to sit, come, and run on demand. Hopefully that counts, haha!

  • Nancy Burgess

    No our dogs don’t know this trick.

  • Kelly McGrew

    no, my sister’s dogs don’t know this, they aren’t as smart as your dog!! they will just sit when they want a treat!

    Our 3 dogs do not know this trick and they are well behaved from going to dog school

  • Kaitlin

    This helped so much, thank you!

  • Julie Murphy

    I have one who can and 2 can’t

  • Yes YoYo speaks but gets carried away sometimes lol . Love the treat idea to see if that stops the over excitement !

  • Laurajj

    Ours do not speak like that….but they sure do bark. πŸ™‚ I would love to teach them to speak too! I have to try this! Ours do sit on command…well sometimes πŸ™‚

  • Sue

    My Beagle mixes do bark lot but digging is a bigger problem. We’re still working on the barking by whispering so they have to listen harder and turning our backs to get their attention. They can’t stand to be ignored, so if we turn around they remember that they need to be quiet.

  • Debra Guillen

    My dog does not know this trick.

  • Laurie Arnheim

    No, our Shih Tzu’s cannot do these jumping kinda tricks, and I don’t think I’d even want to attempt to train them at this point. I have one that will jump up on my lap (if I’m sitting) and give me hugs. That’s about as close as we get to this.

  • Shannon Irvine

    No, not any of them.

  • Christy Maurer

    No, he doesn’t know that one!

  • I like the idea of turning a bad trick into a good one. Now if I can only figure out how to do that for “paw”.

    Yes my dogs know this trick and several others πŸ™‚ I love training them

  • Erin Will

    My dog Shelby does know how to speak but I can’t take credit. We got her as a rescue and she already knew this trick when we adopted her!

  • kimbo9999

    my dog knows this one

  • cezovski

    Luckily, my dog doesn’t jump on people (not usually) and doesn’t bark much either. An “off” or “no bark” command works well for him, followed by a treat or two.

  • Talent Hounds

    Have not had much luck teaching Kilo to speak on command yet but do divert him to shake, say your prayers, touch and hi 5 when new people come over or if he is excited.

  • Marilyn Nawara

    No, none of them know this trick. My Westie doesn’t bark unless someone knocks on the door, and our Border Collie barks at everything.

  • wildnmild4u

    My dog knows this trick. He learned a little differently.

  • Lissa C.

    My dog doesn’t know this trick

  • No, my dog doesn’t know this trick yet!

  • Tammy Horn

    My dogs knows Quiet, Speak, High 5 and Give me 10. I taught speak by praising her when she spoke and and quiet by praising her while quiet. The other tricks were marked with a cue word after she offered the behavior randomly.

    My dog can sit on command, probly like most dogs. She doesn’t know anything special. What she does do is cock her head to the side and give me those big brown eyes when she wants something.
