To teach your King Charles Spaniel tricks, even the easy ones, you should get hold of some small treats, be in a quiet suitable location and maintain the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the King Charles Spaniel will begin to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just beware not to get him extra fired up or he might lose concentration.
Teach your King Charles Spaniel to offer you his paw
To train your King Charles Spaniel 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 treat. After that do it again, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You must observe that he is raising 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 couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most King Charles Spaniels pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your King Charles Spaniel to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a more basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you would for the paw trick. Your King Charles Spaniel will presume you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we trained him earlier. While he reaches up you state “high five” and offer him the treat. When your King Charles Spaniel has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be extremely easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your King Charles Spaniel to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t want your King Charles Spaniel to injure himself while doing the trick. Place your King Charles Spaniel to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the King Charles Spaniel the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to go around or underneath the hoop. When this happens start again. Your King Charles Spaniel wants the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or under doesn’t work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist high. If you own a smaller dog you might want to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it as he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your King Charles Spaniel. Have patience with your King Charles Spaniel and most importantly, have a good time!
