We’ve taught 2 of our 3 dogs to pray. (Tenor, our youngest puppy, is still trying to find his ‘spiritual self’.)
How To Teach Your Dog To Pray
Basically, it’s a 4-step process in teaching a dog to pray:
1. Dog must sit.
2. Dog must lie down.
3. Dog must place chin on ground.
4. Dog must remain in that position until you say “Amen.”
Photos Of Our Dogs Praying
Jim is teaching our dog, Jersey, how to pray. He puts his head down on the floor and he gets a treat if he doesn’t lift his head off the floor until we say Amen.
Here’s another picture of Jersey, saying his prayers on our bed.
Jim is teaching our dog, Destin, to pray. (It looks like Jim is forcing his head down quite hard, but he’s really not.)
Well, what do you know?… It appears that our youngest dog, Tenor, has watched our middle dog, Destin, long enough that he’s finally learned how to say prayers too!
The best picture ever of a little girl praying.
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
