To teach your Chow Chow tricks, even the simple ones, you should have some small treats, teach him in a quiet suitable place and hold the instruction sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Chow Chow will start to get tired. Take note that when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him extremely thrilled or he might lose focus.
Teach your Chow Chow to give you his paw
To train your Chow Chow to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Now repeat this, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Chow Chows pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Chow Chow to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Chow Chow will believe you want to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we taught him previously. While he rises you state “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Chow Chow has mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be really easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Chow Chow to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you do not want your Chow Chow to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Chow Chow on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Chow Chow the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or beneath the hoop. When this happens start once again. Your Chow Chow desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or under doesn’t get it done so he will quickly start going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist high. In the case that you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more as he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Chow Chow. Have patience with your Chow Chow and above all, have a good time!
