3 Tricks To Teach Your Small Munsterlander

To teach your Small Munsterlander tricks, even the easy ones, you should have in hand some of his favorite treats, go to an obscure suitable location and always keep the instruction sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Small Munsterlander will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him too ecstatic or he might possibly lose focus.

Teach your Small Munsterlander to offer you his paw

To teach your Small Munsterlander to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next do this again, and after a couple of tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You ought to observe that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After a few sessions most Small Munsterlanders pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Small Munsterlander to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Small Munsterlander will think you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he rises you state “high 5” and give your Small Munsterlander the treat. Once your Small Munsterlander has mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be extremely easy to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Small Munsterlander to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Small Munsterlander to harm himself while doing the trick. Set your Small Munsterlander on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Small Munsterlander the command to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or under the hoop. When this happens begin again. Your Small Munsterlander desires the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or below doesn’t work so he’ll soon start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist high. In the event that you have a smaller dog you might want to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Small Munsterlander. Have patience with your Small Munsterlander and most of all, have a good time!
