3 Tricks To Teach Your Westphalian Dachsbracke
3 Tricks To Teach Your Westphalian Dachsbracke

To teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke tricks, even the easy ones, you need to provide some small snacks, go to a quiet suitable place and keep the teaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Westphalian Dachsbracke will start to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, just beware not to get him extremely excited or he might perhaps lose focus.

Teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke to offer you his paw

To teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Then do this again, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You need to discover that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After just a few sessions most Westphalian Dachsbrackes pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke to give you a high five

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. Place a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Westphalian Dachsbracke will believe you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had trained him earlier. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the snack. When your Westphalian Dachsbracke has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be really simple to understand and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Westphalian Dachsbracke to injure himself while doing the trick. Place your Westphalian Dachsbracke on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Westphalian Dachsbracke the direction to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to go around or below the hula hoop. When this happens start once again. Your Westphalian Dachsbracke desires the treat and will quickly find out that going around or underneath does not work so he’ll soon start going through it. As soon as he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on 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 gradually raised it to waist high. In the event that you own a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it more as he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Westphalian Dachsbracke. Have patience with your Westphalian Dachsbracke and most importantly, have a good time!
