To teach your Kishu tricks, even the easy ones, you should get some good snacks, go to a quiet suitable location and hold the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Kishu will begin to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, but beware not to get him over excited or he might perhaps lose concentration.
Teach your Kishu to give you his paw
To get your Kishu 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 snack. And then do this again, and after a few tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You ought to observe that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Kishus pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Kishu to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Kishu will believe you desire to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the prior trick. As he reaches up you state “high five” and offer your Kishu the snack. When your Kishu has mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be very easy to learn and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Kishu to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Kishu to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Kishu on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Kishu the command to stop sitting. Initially he might try to walk around or beneath the hoop. In the event that this takes place begin again. Your Kishu desires the snack and will soon learn that going around or underneath does not get it so he will quickly begin going through it. As soon as he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist height. In case you possess a smaller dog you may want to start with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it once he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Kishu. Have patience with your Kishu and most of all, have fun!
