3 Tricks To Teach Your Shiba Inu
3 Tricks To Teach Your Shiba Inu

To teach your Shiba Inu tricks, even easy ones, you should have some savory treats, take him to a remote suitable location and maintain the training sessions to under 15 minutes or your Shiba Inu will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward snack, though be careful not to get him too excited or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Shiba Inu to offer you his paw

To teach your Shiba Inu to give 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 treat. And then do it again, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After just a couple of sessions most Shiba Inus pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Shiba Inu to give you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Shiba Inu will think you want to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. Once he rises you say “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Shiba Inu has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be very easy to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Shiba Inu to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Shiba Inu to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Shiba Inu to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Shiba Inu the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. If this occurs begin once again. Your Shiba Inu desires the snack and will soon discover that walking around or beneath does not get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist height. In the event that you own a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it as he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Shiba Inu. Have patience with your Shiba Inu and above all, have fun!
