3 Tricks To Teach Your Japanese Spitz

To teach your Japanese Spitz tricks, even simple ones, you should have in hand some small snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and always keep the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Japanese Spitz will start to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just take care not to get him too excited or he might lose focus.

Teach your Japanese Spitz to offer you his paw

To teach your Japanese Spitz to offer 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 this again, and after a couple of times do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You need to discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After just a few sessions most Japanese Spitzs pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Japanese Spitz to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Japanese Spitz will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we instructed him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you state “high 5” and give your Japanese Spitz the snack. Once your Japanese Spitz has mastered the paw trick this one ought to be very easy to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Japanese Spitz to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Japanese Spitz to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Japanese Spitz to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Japanese Spitz the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may try to walk around or below the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin again. Your Japanese Spitz wants the snack and will quickly learn that going around or under doesn’t work so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist high. In the case that you have a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Japanese Spitz. Have patience with your Japanese Spitz and above all, have fun!
