To teach your pet dog tricks even simple ones you require to have some little reward treats, be in a quiet suitable location and keep the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your pet will begin to get board, remember when he gets something ideal lots of appreciation and a benefit treat, simply be careful not to get him over ecstatic or he will loose concentration.

canine tricks

Getting your pet to offer you his paw, first get your dog to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take your canines paw in your hand, offer the pet dog a treat, repeat this, after a couple of times do not take his paw so quickly, say the word, count to one then take it, you need to notice he is bringing his paw up as you say the word if he does not return to saying it at the same time, do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After 2 or 3 sessions most pets pick this one up rather happily.

You dog will think you desire to do the paw trick and will reach for the reward with his paw as we taught him earlier, as he reaches up you state “high 5” and give him the treat. As soon as your pet dog has actually mastered the paw technique this one ought to be extremely easy to discover and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than voice control.

Getting your dog to jump through a hoop, prior to you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too expensive as you do not desire your pet to heart himself while sufficing. Sit your dog on one side of a hoola hoop, get the dogs attention on your hand on the other side of the hoop take a reward in your hand and give the pet the command to release him from the sit, at first he may try to walk around or under the hoop, if this occurs start once again, your dog wants the treat and will quickly find out that going around or under does not get it so he will soon begin going through it, when he does say hoopla and offer him the reward. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of hoopla. When I began doing this trick I had a medium sized pet dog (a Labrador) so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist height, if you have a smaller sized canine you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so the canine just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it as he gets used to the technique.
