Bearded dragons popularity is forever growing, and whilst they are great pets to own, many owner want to know, can bearded dragons learn tricks? Well, this really depends on what you call a trick, and how much spare time you have to train your new pet. Bearded dragons are natural explorers, and whilst they are very intelligent, they do lack the ability to learn tricks like a dog.

A bearded dragon will mostly likely never learn to fetch a ball, or roll over. These are activities that they would never usually do, even in the wild. In the wild dogs would chase things, they would also roll onto their back if they had an itch. So they are functions that dogs are already capable of doing. Unfortunately bearded dragons don’t have these functions programmed into them.
None the less you can train a bearded dragon. Whether or not you call them tricks is up to you. But either way it’s still pretty cool. Bearded dragons can learn their name, so when you call them, they return. They can also be taught to wave with a lot of commitment, but this isn’t recommended and I’ll explain why later on. So can bearded dragons learn tricks? Yes, I’d say so. Now, let’s dive into the teaching stage.
