3 Tricks To Teach Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi
3 Tricks To Teach Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi

To teach your Pembroke Welsh Corgi tricks, even simple ones, you should always have some of his favorite snacks, take him to a quiet suitable place and keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Pembroke Welsh Corgi will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just be careful not to get him too excited or he may likely lose concentration.

Teach your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to offer you his paw

To train your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Next do it again, and after a few practices do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You should discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Pembroke Welsh Corgis pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand just a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi will assume you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. While he reaches up you state “high five” and offer him the treat. When your Pembroke Welsh Corgi has mastered the paw trick this one ought to be very simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Pembroke Welsh Corgi to one 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 Pembroke Welsh Corgi the direction to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or underneath the hoop. In the event that this occurs start again. Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi wants the treat and will quickly discover that going around or under does not work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The second he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist height. In case you have a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Have patience with your Pembroke Welsh Corgi and most of all, have a good time!
