3 Tricks To Teach Your Norwegian Buhund
3 Tricks To Teach Your Norwegian Buhund

To teach your Norwegian Buhund tricks, even simple ones, you should have some tasty treats, be in a remote suitable place and keep the coaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Norwegian Buhund will begin to get tired. Just remember when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, though be cautious not to get him overly ecstatic or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Norwegian Buhund to offer you his paw

To train your Norwegian Buhund 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 snack. Then repeat this, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You need to observe that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Norwegian Buhunds pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Norwegian Buhund to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Norwegian Buhund will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we trained him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. Once your Norwegian Buhund has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be extremely simple to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than vocal commands.

Teach your Norwegian Buhund to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Norwegian Buhund to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Norwegian Buhund on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Norwegian Buhund the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. If this takes place begin again. Your Norwegian Buhund wants the treat and will quickly find out that walking around or beneath doesn’t work so he will quickly begin going through it. If he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist high. In the case that you possess a smaller dog you may want to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more once he gets used to the trick.

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