Our dog bags and 3 Fun Tricks to Teach Your Dog

Of course, using our oxo biodegradable dog bags doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with your pet at the same time. That’s why we thought it might be interesting for you to look at these three dog tricks that are easy for you both to learn!

Shaking Hands

Whether you are planning on taking your dog to a park or just having him meet people on a walk, shaking hands is an excellent trick. Ask around, and you’ll find other dog owners tell you this is one of the cutest things your doggie can do.

Here’s a helpful tip to get you started. If you put a closed fist in front of your dog with a treat inside, he’ll paw at it and that’s the first step in performing this trick.


Facts are facts and it’s hard to escape fetch is one of the tricks you will love just as much as your dog. It’s not a good idea to start training your dog in a crowded public area unless you have him on a long lead.

Keep in mind that some dogs want nothing to do with returning the toy you’ll be using for fetch. It’s a good idea to start out with a longer lead so you can throw a ball or toy and gently pull your dog back to you to give him the general idea of how the game is played.

It doesn’t matter whether you live in Newfoundland or Ontario, you can teach an old (or young) dog new tricks! It’s not a big deal whether you’re a dog owner in a condominium or someone who takes their pooch out to a Parks Canada facility every day to practise one or more of these skills.

Our Oxo bio-degradable dog bags have a series of customer testimonials on our website from people just like you. They enjoy everything about having a four-legged friend including making sure they pick up after them and teaching them new tricks.

Rolling Over

If you’ve had a dog for any length of time, you know their number one priority is to please us. Rolling over is another one of the more traditional tricks that you can teach your dog. It’s best to go through three distinct steps and keep in mind repetition is the key to success when trying to master this skill.

If you’re practicing these new maneuvers in places like a campground, remember our oxo biodegradable dog bags come in bulk varieties too.
