To teach your Miniature Pinscher tricks, even the simple ones, you should always have some of his favorite treats, take him to a quiet suitable place and try to keep the instruction sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Miniature Pinscher will begin to get tired. Always remember when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, though be careful not to get him extremely fired up or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Miniature Pinscher to offer you his paw
To teach your Miniature Pinscher to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. And then repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You should notice that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After a couple of sessions most Miniature Pinschers pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Miniature Pinscher to give you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Miniature Pinscher will assume you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we taught him earlier. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Miniature Pinscher has actually mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be extremely simple to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Miniature Pinscher to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Miniature Pinscher to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Miniature Pinscher to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Miniature Pinscher the direction to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place start once again. Your Miniature Pinscher wants the treat and will soon learn that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. The minute he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist height. On the occasion that you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it once he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Miniature Pinscher. Have patience with your Miniature Pinscher and most of all, have fun!
