Can I teach my gecko tricks?

While you may not be able to teach your gecko complex tricks like dogs or other animals, you can definitely build a deeper bond through positive reinforcement and interaction.

So, yes, you can teach your gecko, to perform some simple tricks.

But what are those?

Well, here it is:

  1. Target: Use a stick or tong to guide your gecko to a spot, then give them a yummy treat. Do this again and again in different places!
  2. Come when called: Use a simple word or sound as a command and reward your gecko with a treat when they approach you.
  3. Hand feeding: Offer food from your hand (gently!) so they learn you’re safe and awesome.
  4. High-five: Hold your hand flat near your gecko’s head and wait for them to touch it with their front foot and then give them a treat.

These are just some examples. You can try inventing your own tricks and see what your gecko can do.

Remember to always be patient and consistent with your training and never force your gecko to do anything they are uncomfortable with.

Hope this helps!
