3 Tricks To Teach Your Kanni

To teach your Kanni tricks, even easy ones, you need to get hold of some small treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and keep the instruction sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Kanni will begin to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, yet take care not to get him extra excited or he will lose focus.

Teach your Kanni to give you his paw

To get your Kanni to offer 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 tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a couple of sessions most Kannis pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Kanni to offer you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Kanni will think you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we instructed him in the prior trick. While he rises you state “high 5” and offer your Kanni the snack. As soon as your Kanni has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be really easy to master and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Kanni to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Kanni to hurt himself while performing the trick. Set your Kanni to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Kanni the direction to stop sitting. At first he may try to walk around or under the hoop. In the event that this happens begin again. Your Kanni desires the snack and will soon learn that going around or underneath does not get it done so he will soon begin going through it. As soon as he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist height. In the event that you own a smaller dog you may desire to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Kanni. Have patience with your Kanni and above all, have fun!
