3 Tricks To Teach Your Pomeranian
3 Tricks To Teach Your Pomeranian

To teach your Pomeranian tricks, even simple ones, you should get hold of some savory treats, take him to a remote suitable location and manage to keep the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Pomeranian will begin to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something right give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him over thrilled or he will lose focus.

Teach your Pomeranian to offer you his paw

To get your Pomeranian to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You ought to discover that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After just a couple of sessions most Pomeranians pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Pomeranian to give you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Pomeranian will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. While he rises you say “high five” and give him the treat. Once your Pomeranian has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.

Teach your Pomeranian to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Pomeranian to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Pomeranian on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Pomeranian the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or under the hoop. When this occurs begin again. Your Pomeranian desires the treat and will quickly discover that walking around or under does not get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist high. If you possess a smaller sized dog you may want to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I know you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Pomeranian. Have patience with your Pomeranian and most importantly, have fun!
