3 Tricks To Teach Your Standard Schnauzer
3 Tricks To Teach Your Standard Schnauzer

To teach your Standard Schnauzer tricks, even easy ones, you need to get some good treats, be in a quiet suitable place and always keep the teaching sessions to under 15 minutes or the Standard Schnauzer will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, yet be cautious not to get him over excited or he might lose focus.

Teach your Standard Schnauzer to give you his paw

To train your Standard Schnauzer to give 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 snack. Next do it again, and after a few practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Standard Schnauzers pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Standard Schnauzer to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Standard Schnauzer will think you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we instructed him in the prior trick. Once he rises you state “high 5” and offer him the treat. When your Standard Schnauzer has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be really simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Standard Schnauzer to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Standard Schnauzer to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Standard Schnauzer to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Standard Schnauzer the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place start again. Your Standard Schnauzer desires the snack and will soon find out that going around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll soon start going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually lifted it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you may want to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Standard Schnauzer. Have patience with your Standard Schnauzer and above all, have a good time!
