3 Tricks To Teach Your Volpino Italiano
3 Tricks To Teach Your Volpino Italiano

To teach your Volpino Italiano tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have in hand some of his favorite treats, go to an obscure suitable location and try to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Volpino Italiano will start to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him extra fired up or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Volpino Italiano to give you his paw

To teach your Volpino Italiano to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You should notice that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Volpino Italianos pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Volpino Italiano to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Volpino Italiano will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. Once your Volpino Italiano has mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be extremely easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Volpino Italiano to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Volpino Italiano to injure himself while doing the trick. Place your Volpino Italiano on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Volpino Italiano the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Volpino Italiano desires the snack and will quickly learn that going around or below doesn’t get it so he will soon begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist height. On the occasion that you own a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Volpino Italiano. Have patience with your Volpino Italiano and most importantly, have fun!
